We use the word 'wonder' a bunch these days.
We say, "I wonder where the boys are?"
"Do you ever wonder what it would be like without sin?"
"It's a wonder that you didn't kill yourself on that jump!"

Today I'm using it in a whole new way!
How do I describe the amazing blessings of our God?
I'm in WONDER and AWE of Him and how He chooses to work in our lives!

Remember how this whole blog got started?
It was all about giving control back to God:
control of our lives, control of our fertility, control of everything!
Well... it's not finalized yet,
but all our ducks are in a row for the financial part of having a tubal reversal.

We're tentatively planning on the first part of December to fly to Mexico for surgery!
It's all just so incredible!
How God works in our lives to bless us and teach us new things just leaves me in

Am I teachable? Are you?

Just the other day a good friend asked me, "What's God been teaching you lately?"
Hmmm... good question. I know I had an answer, but it seems I'm too tired to remember it! Wait, maybe that was part of the answer! Yep, that was it... get to bed earlier so I can get up earlier and have that unbroken quiet time with the Lord. Well, at least that's what I think He wants to teach me, so I'd better start doing it!

That would mean that I need to go to bed now, and not continue to post.

So, I'll leave you with that same question I was asked...

What has God been teaching you lately?

I'm just so thankful that He's intimate enough with who I am to shape and teach and discipline and guide me! That's another thing He's been teaching me - Thankfulness! It's the best antidote for anger and selfishness and fear and depression and frustration and... and... and the list continues with self-centered emotions. He's so much bigger than my emotions, and my emotions are so deceptive!

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for conquering sin and death in my life and for raising me to eternal life with You! Thank You for giving me a new heart, and for leaving with me your Helper, the Holy Spirit! Thank You for being strong when I am weak. Thank You for being a sovereign, omnipotent, omnipresent, creator God who is holy and righteous and just and merciful! You are worthy of all thanks and praise! You alone, Father, deserve all glory!
