a new day

Nothing is ever easy I keep saying…
Daddy and Aden praying together at Flag time during AWANA!

Zach getting ready for his G-J button Change at Egleston

However there are nights like last night that just reminds me that God is certainly with us. Aden came in from his wonderful day and didn’t want to eat, watch TV or anything, all he wanted to do was go to bed, I did something that I never do, I let him have a cup of Kool-Aid and go to bed. So Adam, Zach and I sat down for dinner. Zach did so well; he ate oatmeal, soup, and peanut butter crackers. He wanted to be with daddy so daddy and Zach had a great family time. Oh Aden slept till 6:39a this morning, he was tired. I am so glad that he rested because today he has school.

We are wondering if some of his pain and all… his screaming and frustration has to do with the old tube, like something was wrong with it. Cause even though he is still screaming and frustrated it is so much better now that he had the new tube, so as much as I didn’t want to put him in anesthesia again is now that I know that he NEEDED his tube to be changed. Thank God they didn’t let him wait the two weeks. I would have been without my mind, because I would have lost it!

Our family minus Aden....dressed up for AWANAs

In Sunday school we are learning that God doesn’t belong in a box, there isn’t a box that is big enough for me to put him in. One of the verses that I found it one that I now love and that I hold dear, it makes me realize even more that God knows what it is like to be a mom and He knows that sometimes moms (and others too) need extra encouragement and that we need to know that it is all going to be okay. I don’t mean that it will all be perfect, I mean can you imagine how boring life would be if nothing ever went wrong. However, what I do mean is that there is nothing that God can’t do and there is nothing that too much for Him (which is the tie in to the second verse). The two verses that I we have been focusing on are Isaiah 40:11 and Jeremiah 32:17. God carries us close to his heart and He leads us. It is nice to know that God holds me and that He gathers me and loves me so much that He knows that I am an emotional person that needs the love, hugs, and confirmation that I am not alone in all of the things that we are going though. There is nothing to Hard for God…. why am I worried about all the things of this world because He can do it ALL.

Isaiah 40:11
He tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart;
he gently leads those that have young.
Jeremiah 32:17
Ah, Sovereign LORD, you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
