Trekking through life: Faith, family, friends and a whole lot of coffee!

Our God is an AWESOME God!!! October 20, 2011

Hubby was having a tossy-turny kind of night last night and I was afraid he was up for the day at 3 A.M.!!   However, he said when he was tossing and turning at 3 A.M. he felt the call to go look at the stars  (the FIRST thing he does when he wakes up in the morning) and he saw a shooting star. He was able to go  back to sleep until 5.

God is good.

With the brisk fall temperatures this morning, I opted for a walk around the neighborhood today versus the gym.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see my own shooting star, but the morning sky did not disappoint with thebrightly shining  crescent moon and array of twinkling stars; add in the crisp air and the day is off to a great start!

God is good.

Talking with a friend the other day as to what some expectations are for their family as their son begins to serve his sentence,  I am reminded that God IS good. All the time. In every situation. Though their journey is just “beginning”, I have every confidence that God will guide them through every step of this chapter. Time will fly. Time will standstill.   Holidays, birthdays, and family celebrations will come and go. Life goes on. And God is there. On both sides of the fence.   Waiting for the invitation to let Him take over. To trust in His plan. To let go.

God is good.

Rejoicing with a friend at the long awaited news of a pregnancy after many, many years. God is good.   Praying for friends who hope to adopt after years of infertility. God is good.

“This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!” Psalm 118:24  

(my prayer mantra during my marathon run in Nashville in 2000)
