II corinthians 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight
one of the gifts steph gave me for christmas was a box of scripture tea……………..
boy this is an appropriate verse for the day, sitting here thinking of shel, james and eliza, and having a break down!
i knew it was coming! hard to see the keyboard through the tears:)
just got done composing an email to james and it brought back all the feeling i had when UA left the first time for africa…………. will i see him again, will he be ok, is he safe, the things just going through my head and satan trying to creep in..finally i knew…….i knew what i had to do…………..just put him in God’ s hands and let HIM take care of him, and that is what i did, and let me tell you, after submitting, i had such a peace about what UA was about to experience and knowing he was going over there to be HIS servant, made me put things in perspective and in the end it is all God’s plan.
james serving our country, taking shel and eliza with him, has got me back to thinking the same thoughts i had when UA left, scared, uncertainty, so many questions flood my mind and once again i know what i have to do!
“God they are yours” there, i said it!
it doesn’t make it easy, of course i will be sad at times, but the way shel is with her journaling, like a friend of mine said to me “i have never even seen eliza and i feel like i know her, and am watching her grow up”….hoping that will make the time go quick
that will help the days pass, hopefully they get a couple of leaves and maybe just maybe mike and i can use our passports:)
