On Friday, May 10th, after much waiting, the day finally arrived; it was time to go to the airport! The house had been somewhat child proofed, supplies rounded up, Teresa Lusk had set up a 27 hour prayer chain for their traveling, the car seat was in the car, the high chair seat attached to the chair, and beds were ready for rest. After more than 24 hours of traveling, Mary, Abby, and Scott arrived in Houston! It is so good to have all three of them home! For this we have prayed and God has answered “Yes”! Since they are dealing with a 13 hour difference in time zones, this will be a week of adjustment to body clocks and hopefully much rest and relaxation. Mary started off this morning with lots of “talking”, laughing, exploring, and crawling at lightning speed. What fun! Now it’s time for her nap.
Abby's parents were there to greet them, too.
On Sunday morning, we will go to our granddaughter Ryen’s Baby Dedication. Chad and Lori are participating in a service at their church where they will express that they are making a commitment to raise Ryen in a home that loves, serves, and obeys the Lord. We’ll also get to see David which is always a very good thing.
Then Sunday afternoon we will get to spend time with Brad and Melinda. This mom has a full, content, and happy heart. It’s pretty special that this Mother’s Day, I will be able to be with each person in our family. God is good all the time and continues to bless me more than I could ever ask or imagine.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.Ephesians 3:20-21
