Sign Post Ahead
I'd like to find a sign like a "Men Working" one except that it would say "God Working" and hang it on my front door. I've basically been held captive this past week by a sick toddler and I can't believe how much God has been working on my heart during this time. Except for being EXTREMELY sleep deprived, I haven't been this at peace in awhile. Not that everything is rosy and happy, but I don't feel like I'm missing anything by being stuck in the house. I have been praying with and for my kids with surprising results. To give a little background, the night of the last big blizzard, Justin bit a hole in his last pacifier. I went out twice that night, unable to find the Soothie that he likes, but eventually finding a pacifier that would suffice. The other day, we lost the blue Nuk but still had the green one (being exactly the same except for the color.)I looked everywhere and couldn't find the blue one. I got down on my knees in the living room with Connor and Justin and we prayed that God would tell us where the missing pacifier was. I looked under the entertainment center and what do you think I found but the original missing Soothie pacifier. I was so excited as I explained to the boys that God had just answered our prayer right then and there. In victory I handed Justin his all time favorite pacifier, which he threw across the room, and said "Blue one." It made me realize how often God gives us what we ask for and we still aren't happy. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your understanding."
