ya'll, my sister is coming!!!
so, with my sister comes DAVID. oh, for those that know David. his goofiness will bring so much joy!!! i can't wait to see how high he can throw some of our kids up to the sky!!! i really can't wait to see what the Lord shows kelli and david and teaches both of them while they are here. Gressier is ready for the GOOFINESS!!
well, all of us as family, serve together!!!! family serving together!! wow. so thankful!
and now, i present to you news that i am thrilled about.. and news that is a little bittersweet.
the thrilling news is that BEN MORRIS, my man, is coming. he will arrive on feb. 11 (2 days after my family) ... i can't hardly wait to wrap my arms around him. Ben, with his darling heart, is going to serve so well here. there are times when i see things that need to be fixed and i think right away,"ben could fix that. ben could do that. ben could drive that. ben could build that. ben could .... the list goes on." needless to say ben morris is thought about often here. i can't wait to serve alongside him. the Lord has definitely used this time apart to grow us, to show us how big HE is, to show us freedom in a relationship and to teach us a TON. ben is coming and im sooooo happy. i can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for us that week! i just know that the Lord will use that week to show us more than we ever could imagine. im praying for huge things to happen!
the bittersweet part is that..... when Ben leaves on the 18th, i will be with him. so i will spend my last week, of the 5 months here, with Ben then we will travel back together. this is bittersweet. on that day, i will be sad. so sad. dang, im going to be sad. thinking about it now brings tears. i have already warned Ben that he better be ready for lots of tears. it will be sad to leave my family,the people who have loved my guts out and theirs in return for the past 5 months. they will be hard to leave. the people who have taught me so much about life, they will be hard to leave. Leaving here with Ben will make things better... knowing that He will be my side brings joy. im soo thankful.
so yeah, FEB 18. ill be home. a trip back in June is already in plan. of course i can't stay away to long.
being back at home... well, im asking the LORD to prepare my heart for my homecoming. im ready to be with my family, my friends and my church family.
God is so good.
He knows exactly what i need.
Hes so Good.
