It has been quite sometime since I've posted on my blog. So many changes happening all at once in our lives, that it is hard to keep up on the writing and documenting of them.
We are still anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first grandchild...knowing that when God says, "Today is the day", it will happen.
We were rewarded with a totally unexpected surprise when our son who was recently deployed showed up on our doorstep with out warning. We were thrilled and overjoyed to be able to spend time with him and his family. We are the kind of people who enjoy surprises so this was an A+ experience.
It has been a reminder to me to look around every day and see the surprises that God has all around us. The bird singing a tune in the middle of rain showers, or the black squirrel scurrying up a walnut tree to prepare for his winter. So many "little" things that surround me everyday.
Father God, as we are in the "waiting" and "expecting" period as we anticipate the arrival of our grandchild, I pray that You would give me eyes and ears that are turned and tuned to You, as well as an expectant heart for Your surprises that are abundant.
