Trust in the Lord.

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your path". Proverbs 3:5-6

That is what I am doing regrading our children and our blended family. Trust and obey, for there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.

Our new prayer activity that we are doing with the Children is still going well. They are really liking it. I ask that everyone still continue to pray for us as we try to bind our families together in God's love. There are 2 households, that love the same 3 children. But there is some forgiveness that needs to happen between a few of the parties involved. God can do it. We just all need to have a heart that is open to His prompting.

Tomorrow, we all have a meeting at Niko's school regrading his IEP plan. I hope that all goes well.

You guys are great. Thanks so much for all the prayers that have already been lifted up! We did all attend church together this past Sunday, both sets of parents and all the children. It was one of those things that just sort of happened. But I know that God was totally in control of that situation. Praise Jesus.

As I mentioned yesterday, my sister Joann, has been feeling under the weather. They moved about 2 weeks ago from South Mississippi, and well can I say CLIMATE CHANGE!! She has asthma and she went to the doctor yesterday and they admitted her into the hospital. She tells me she's fine. I haven't been able to go visit her, she is about 1 hour away from where I live. She told me that tomorrow they will be doing asthma education with her, since the climate is do different.

My Mama, is home with with my 2 nieces. They started their first day at their new school yesterday. They are liking it and already have made some friends. How wonderful is that?

Have a great evening, Renee

Hi Renee - nice to meet you!

I'll be praying for your children and family!

My entire focus lately has been trusting in God. We are teaching our children all about this every day. Trusting in self (sin) vs. God.

I wrote a few posts about it too in the last couple of days. Thanks again for visiting!

In His amazing grace,

You are in such a challenging situation. I don't think it ever works out like Reba's show! If only life were as simply as it is portrayed in the sitcoms! It sure sounds like you have the best possible attitude, though...and prayer does work miracles.
