it’s not in the circumstances,
it’s in the heart.
Those are wise words from my mom!
If you’ve been reading for awhile, you know I had a Mommy Moment back in March, when my oldest realized he wasn’t going to be able to go to the annual Belle Blade mission trip at church.
As we’ve approached the time for Belle Glade, Nathan’s had some neat insights. He’s had opportunity to play with and witness to neighborhood kids. His comment: “I don’t have to go to Belle Glade, Belle Glade is coming to me.” I love seeing his insight!
Last night we had a pretty bad wind storm at my parents’ house. (Actually, after I drafted this I realized we got part of that bad storm that hit the northeast right before the 4th of July. I heard one person call it “a land hurricane.”)
This morning, Nathan was out with a rake, of his own initiative, cleaning up my parents’ yard and their neighbors’ yard. He was listening to Elevation, “For the Honor”, thinking about how he could honor God. He also said that helped him say, “Whatever you have, God, I’m ok with that,” during the storm. I thought about how Nathan would have been serving in Belle Glade and how God gave Nathan a chance to serve here at my parents’. And Nathan recognized it.
How I love these Mommy Moments – when I can see God interacting with my boys,
and can see them recognizing and responding!
All glory to HIM!!
