"Way past beyond!"

So I'm coming off of this intensely long week of being constantly reminded that I have no control what so ever of anything that goes on in life.  If you have no idea what I'm talking about see an earlier post called "Letting go of control".  Not only have I been learning this hard lesson I am also ending a week of intense sickness.  Not my sickness (Praise the Lord!), but the boys sickness.  They both had a wicked bout with RSV, which lead to some other things needing prescription meds and VERY LONG nights.  While all this was going on not only was God giving us strength to love each other through these unlovable times, but He was also doing some behind the scenes work that Charlie and I had no idea about.  He was moving somebody, we have no idea who, to pay off the remaining balance of our Hospital bill.  That's over ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!  I'll say it again, OVER $1,000!  We didn't ask God for this gift.  We weren't feeling any more burdened by it then any of our other bills, it was just part of life.  Yet God chose to give this to us.  He goes "way past, beyond" (Priscilla Shirer) my deepest imagination.

Psalm 118:1 "Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; for His lovingkindness is everlasting."


  1. Love! Love! Love! All of it! Veerry nice, my friend! I am duly impressed! You GO girl!

  2. Thanks friend! It's because of you that I started a blog. I love your idea of publishing it. I'm sure I'll do this more often then I have kept up on the journal I have for the boys. And I'm always encouraged to see how God is teaching others, so I thought I might be able to do the same.
