Wow God

I have been reminded a lot lately that God's timing is perfect and today, I had another one of those... 'Wow God' moments.

It's been a hard few weeks... nothing major but a few things have happened that have really made me crave my family and familiar surroundings. And today, I woke up with absolutely NO energy. I literally was dozing as Izzy and I played at 6 this morning. LOL

So, exhuasted, frustrated and missing home was how my morning started. But God allowed the day to end perfectly. For starters... my MIL called and I got to chat a little with her, my SIL, and my niece Shay. I really needed that and I'm so thankful that God allowed them to call at the perfect time. And how cool is this... Shay (who is 6) is getting baptized on Sunday! I am SO proud of her and so bummed I won't be able to watch but I'm trusting (hint hint... lol) there will be a video. :)

Secondly, I decided to enter another scrapping contest and God gave me the creativity to finish all but one (therefore 4) lo's tonight! I still have some tweaking to do but I am so proud of them! So proud, that I'm considering dropping out of the contest so I can share them. If not... it won't be until late Sept that I can share. One of these LO's is about Isabella's birth and as I was journaling, I was reminded of how perfect God's timing was in bringing her to us. I won't go into all the details but before getting pregnant, we were beginning the adoption process which fell through and once we decided to have our own baby, it took longer than expected. I didn't understand it at the time but as I look back, I see how perfect His timing was in bringing her to us when He did and for so many reasons.

Thirdly, my sweet hubby has agreed to get up with Izzy tomorrow morning which allows me to catch up on a few zzz's... which is why I'm still up blogging. LOL

So... this evening was filled with 'Wow God... I hated going through that... I hated feeling that way... but Wow... You were so right to allow that.'

Isn't it great to know that our lives are not our own?
