Still waiting....

Isn't funny how God works? I've been spending some time with family in WV this past week and it was fun and challenging at times (more on that in a bit) but just when I think it's time to head back to my "routine" the Lord says "Slow down, girlie, I'm still cleanin house!"

Our car has acted up and we haven't been able to get home yet. I'm waiting as I type for the car to be done so we can head home. Patience is something I believe He knows I need to develop so here I sit...(teehee)

My family has been thru a lot in the last 5 years. My father passed away, my mom had a stroke and had knee replacement and lots of other serious health problems, my brother-in-law committed suicide at home with my sister, 16 yr old niece and 14 yr old nephew in the next room, like I said...we've been thru it. This week I got to spend some time with my sis and my niece and we laughed a lot, cried even more and shopped til we dropped!!!! (window shopping mostly) But God is definetly working in me, working in them and working in my entire family! My kids got some much needed time with Grandma's allowing mom some much needed time alone - God is good! haha - and then we had a reunion with my in-laws that was awesome as well.

So, here I am waiting. Waiting for the van to get done, waiting to see what the Lord has in store for me, waiting to see him work in my family...waiting! It's not much fun, I admit, but I will wait for Him! He's worth the wait!!
