SPRINGTIME-NEW BEGINNINGS









I'm pretty convinced that Springtime is my absolute favorite time of year, that is until fall comes. What I love about Spring is that it is a time for new beginnings. Until lately, I've always thought about it being a time for new happy beginnings but I'm not so sure now. It seems there is a lot of beginnings of trials for people around me. Lauren, Charlene, Aunt Janie and many more that I probably don't even know about yet. And to add to that list is Noah. We spent Sunday night in the ER until about 4:30am (not for fun mind you) because Noah had spiked a fever of 103 and because of that, had a seizure. We are home now and the doctors tell me that is nothing too abnormal for a toddler his age and most likely due to a virus. Now we have a appointment with the neurologist on Thursday for a consult and to set a time for an MRI. He's been having headaches and they don't want to leave that unexplained. So.... can Spring still be a time for new beginnings? ABSOLUTELY. I can tell you without a doubt that my faith has grown so much lately (that seems to happen when you are sitting by helpless unable to do anything but pray). I am so comforted by the Scriptures that I read about God being our comfort in times of trouble. I am reminded of my favorite verse of all times : Nahum 1:7, "The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble. He knoweth them that trust in him." Please pray for those around you and remember to thank the Lord for the things you have. God can do great things through these trials. I am so looking forward to being with about 23 other women this weekend for the retreat at the beach to have some fun, fellowship and to spiritually recharge. Thank you Lord for new beginnings.

Please please please keep me informed. I'm so glad you went to a neurosurgeon and are having an MRI. We would NEVER have known about Lauren's spine issues if not for the MRI, so I totally believe in them! I'm praying for you- it's hard not to know what's up when your child is concerned. Love you!

Carroll! Ha, traffic jam. That made me laugh. I think I'll use it as a caption for a scrapbooking moment!

And Lydia, I'll definately keep you informed. God is good-he'll be allright.

PRAISE THE LORD CHARLENE'S TEST WAS OK!!! GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME.
