Testing--Hello?--Test-Test: Today Is Brought To You By The Numbers 18, 6, and 12
Hello friends!! I know, I know---it's been too long since a post and as a friend from church told me last night, "I'm sick of seeing that pumpkin party!" LOL!!!
For those of you not on Face**Book with me or know me personally then you have no idea of the recent chaos in our life.
That will be another post all it's own. Really deep thoughts that don't go along with this post.
This post is to celebrate today: November 20, 2009 (by the way---I just had to delete the "19" from my year because we aren't in that century anymore).
18 years ago today I met my darling, handsome, funny, sincere, loyal, dependable, intelligent, crazy, HOT, godly, Renaissance man! No one can be more of a perfect fit for my quirks than him. We are a perfect match!!!
6 years ago today we saw the beautiful face of our funny, tender-hearted, servant-hearted, creative, gorgeous daughter for the first time on a computer screen. We cried tears of awe and joy as the page opened and scrolled down to reveal her precious face at the age of 9 months old.
The irony of these years is that they are 12 years apart to the day.
My favorite number has always been 12. It has followed me all my life and to think that God giggled a bit when He so creatively allowed me to meet the two most important people in my life---exactly 12 years apart---makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Good one, God.
I might be back on here before Thanksgiving, I might not. If you don't see me on here again until December, then please know that I am counting my blessings that are so freely given me by the Lord.
He is good.
I can hurt and bleed and cry and ache and wonder why.
I can laugh and smile and giggle and dream and hope.
He is there for all of it.
What a blessing to be His.
