I am Blessed

  The questions is have you always wondered why things happened in your life???? I can tell you time after time after time in my life I have certainly asked GOD why???  Many of you know that our three sons are adopted.  I am not going to say raising someone else's children for them has always been easy.  But I will say God has been with us through it all and we have seen God work through every situations and obstacle we have battled with.  Through all the good times God has been there also. We have been so blessed to be able to do so much with these boys God has been so good.  We have made lots of beautiful family memories lately.  We have had our summer packed this year we've been to Florida and went to a three day youth congress this week with the entire family.
  During the youth congress with our family and our church family this past week my God said I have some answers.   God opened my eyes again this week to answer some of my whys????  Why???--- God was I not able to have birth children.  Don't get me wrong I love our boys with all my heart and treasure all three of them.  We have a very small youth department in church right now.  In fact, we have eleven current active teens between (the ages of 11-18) in our church right now that attend regularly.  Eight out of these eleven kids come from broken homes.  There either living with one biological parent, or a grandparent and are foster children or adopted children.  You may say that is a high ratio.  But I say it is God will for our church.  These kids all can relate to one another.  They can talk to one another and not feel like an outcast.  I told one of the teen girls this week I know without a doubt God brought all of us together in this church because we can relate with one another.  I told her I personally could relate with her because of my own situation with my own children.  See God knew where my journey would lead me one day. If we all could just say God only you knows what it is best for my life. Only you know what the future beholds and truly be yielded. We would not get so stressed out sometimes.
  Romans 1:10-- Making a request, if by any means now at length I night have a prosperous journey by the will of God to come unto you. 
  3 John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

First of all, I want to apologize for not commenting lately. My life has been pretty full with new GRAND's and my Mom having hip replacement and being in rehab. But....I'm not gonna make excuses for myself 'cause I should have skipped over here to see what's going on in your life...and yours is full to the brim!!! I've said since I first met you that you have more faith than just about anybody I've ever met...especially for a "young" person!!! I love you dearly, and yes we do need to get together soon!!!
