shovel

“Faith can move mountains, but don't be surprised if God hands you a shovel.” — Author Unknown

I spent the morning drive into work with tears streaming down my face, my hands gripping the wheel and my voice, quiet and shaking, lifted to the Lord’s ears.

I'd talked with my mom earlier and she'd shared some news that rocked me to the core (a core which was already shaken by some news she'd delivered over the weekend). Just before I hung up the phone, I asked her: “What do I pray for?”

She simply said, “For strength, for peace …”

I'm not ready to share specifics, I just ask that anyone who happens by this entry to join me in bowed heads, bent knees and softly spoken words.

With one shovel, or thousands … miracles the size of mountains can, and will, happen.

M.G.G. … with each breath I take, each beat of my heart, I am loving you, lifting you up and praying that peace find its way to you.

I am not sure if this is relating to Coop's infection or something to private to share with the world. But I am lifting up your family today my blogging friend. God knows the desires of our hearts and He is ever present in our circumstances.
The very best thing we can do is speak out His promises over the situation.
Isaiah 55:11 talks about the power of His words.

hmmm, I probably should not have read this blog while I am trying to put my makeup on--I thought I was finished crying--ha ha, I guess those tear ducts just stay "always on stand by"!!! I love your tender heart and your caring spirit--God really did a wonderful job when He made you. lovemimi
