So…here’s the first little ray of sunshine I’ll share with you.
One weekend day, the kids are at the dining room table coloring (and often fighting over crayons or who touched what and who) and I’m in the kitchen about 15 feet away getting ready to fall apart and start crying hysterically. And, out of nowhere, my kids start singing one of those Sunday school songs that they get stuck in their head and they sing it all day long. What song is it? “Stand Firm.” Immediately, my heart jumped. That was totally God seeing me melt down and using them to send me encouragement to be strong in my faith and that He is in control. Is it easy knowing that I am going to have to be patient and wait on His time? Absolutely not! But, I can do it one day at a time.
