Who am I?

I am ashamed of my last post. I won't delete it because I think transparency is beautiful. I can't even believe I complained in the slightest today. Due to transitioning computers I have not been reading all the blogs that I usually keep up with. I just spent the last half hour with such sorrowful tears for someone I don't even know. I've mentioned on a previous post for you to check out this blog for Leslie. Well, I just went and read everything this past month. Who am I to complain about any emotions? My gosh! I'm disgusted with myself and want all prayers and attention to be on this family. Please pray for Leslie, Tyson and T.J! Go to their blog archive and start at early May to know what they are facing at the end of a long 7 month journey.

Lord, I do pray that you will be their strength. We do know and trust that you are good. But, this doesn't look or feel good. Help them to know your promises so personally that they may carry Your truths and promises through this incredibly, difficult and dark time.

I will pray for this family for sure. But please do not beat yourself up. God cares about all of our frustrations.

I feel the same way lately. If one thing doesn't go the way I plan, I feel like crying. Crazy! Then, like you, I think of Leslie and feel like I don't have a right to complain about anything! But, we each have our struggles and God is there for us not matter how big or small! I hope you are feeling better.

Wow. What a heartbreaking situation for this family.

Things like this really give us perspective.

I heard Ann Graham Lots (not sure I spelled that right) say that everything is small to God, so we can go to Him with all things - things we think are big as well as things we think are small. It doesn't matter because He cares for us! Go to Him with the "little things"! Don't feel bad. He loves for his children to come running for Him.

By the way, I receive all my comments for my blog via email, so feel free to use the original site for that. THANKS!

Oh, and I forgot to say - I can't wait to meet you this summer!

hey Rachel:) I just spent some time on Leslie's blog...my goodness, my heart is so saddened by what they are facing. Reading some of that is so familiar, as it is similar to what mom went through. Hmm...
Well, I do hope your day was better today!:)
