Good Things Come To Those Who...


That is the word that describes this year so far, and we're barely 1/4 of the way into 2009.

In January, my sister-in-law was very ill. We spent several days not knowing whether she would live or not. In the end, she did not. Because of weather issues, we had the unusual situation of delaying her funeral for a week.

We are waiting for results from Savannah's kidney stone analysis to return. We're waiting for the next surgery to be scheduled.

We continue to wait for further developments in our foster-adoption case. Our babies are part of our family, but they don't share our name.

Tom's employer is sifting through employees holding positions that are less than 100% necessary. Tom received word yesterday that he is apparently still needed. For that, we are thankful.

I am not by nature a patient person. Neither did I recently pray and ask God to grant me patience! I'm not that silly! That Serenity Prayer....unh uh! Deanna does not pray that prayer! No sirree!

Never the less, God knows what Deanna needs, not only BEFORE Deanna does, but even when Deanna refuses to admit out loud that she has a need. So for whatever reason, here I sit, learning patience. And because God knows His plan for me, I must learn to trust that He will work everything out for good, even when it looks like God is not making sense.

I am so thankful Tom's job is safe! I was praying for him and your family last week.

Thank you! Don't quit - they're talking more layoffs possibly.
