This beautiful song was on the radio as I was backing my father in law's car out of my driveway. He stopped for a visit, and parked behind my car. I took advantage of him being there since hubby was at work. I asked him to sit with kids while I ran to Wal-Mart for prescription refills and the usual milk, eggs, bread. Taking five children into Wal-Mart is asking for disaster! Thank God he happend to come by on the day I needed to get out. I thank God even more that this song, one I'd never heard, came on. It was meant for me to hear. I know it was God's revelation to me of his Grace. The song fits me perfect right now, with this whole dark severe post partum. I can't find much hope, but there is Grace. I've got to keep on, keeping on. My mamma instilled me with faith and my mother in law was the absolute most faithful person I've known, so I know that God will bring me through my darkest hours...I've just gotta hang on!
The song was a complete revelation to me and I want to share in case others are facing a battle and they need to know God's Grace!
While I did listen to the song, and know it was meant for me...it amazes me that God knows the plan. My father in law parked behind me. I have another carbi can take. He said no, just use mine...and I did. I'd have never heard that song which gave hope that this will pass and God's grace is sufficient. With all these fancy new radio systems, I was able to see who the band was and I'm intrigued to hear more. The station his radio was on is not generally a station I'd have my radio set to...so chances of me just hearing it were slim. But God's divine plan unveiled yesterday and it was at the right time.
Now on to today, it's been rocky. I've had the highs and lows. Basically just here and going through the motions. One kid has parent teacher conference, one kid a wrestling tournament so it was a long ordeal with five of six kids in tow. The people sitting around me were probably naming me the crazy lady with the gaggle of children. Two of which were very misbehaved. Monkey see monkey do! This was my first sporting event this season and now, the last. Never will I brave six kids alone in a gymnasium that is full of people screaming, whistles blowing and kids running wild. This wild behavior only led to the wild behavior of my kids. Thank God that's over. I nearly ran to the car so I could calm the anxiety.
Now, the house is quiet and my bed is warm. The lights are out and hopefully soon my brain will get the memo that its time to sleep. Prayers for a better tomorrow! Prayers for a friend who went out of her way to encourage me even though she's got a battle of her own. We can't always tell when someone is fighting some battle, could be mentally, physically, emotionally. Let me never judge, but pray for them. They need God's grace as well.
