God's Never Failing Care

THANKFUL THURSDAY - it seems so long since I posted a "thankful Thursday" and there is so much to publicly give thanks for....but, as it seems lately, I am short on time; however, I have to thank the Lord for caring for my Em while we were away. Apparently, no matter how old they grow or how "independent" they become, our children are simply a part of us - our hearts - and we never stop worrying:)

Like I mentioned in my previous post, my daughter does not really like to be included in my blog.....but I have to mention that she was in a car accident while we were in Europe - a rather serious accident. It breaks my heart even now to think that we were not here and not with her when she really needed us (truly makes me cry). However, she was never - for a moment - out of God's care. Not only did He protect her during the accident...she was not seriously hurt and is absolutely fine now.....but He comforted her and loved her even when I could not be here. I am so grateful that we are never away from His love and care - and He cares for my children even more than I am able. Just as He protected Em, He sees and cares for my son in Afghanistan.

I simply want to praise and thank Him this morning.

(Now, hopefully...I can get some work done on organizing my pictures:).....)

  6. Jennifer, I am so out of the loop with so much going on around here, that I missed that you were going to Europe. You will have to excuse me. Happy Anniversary. What a wonderful trip to Paris. I can't wait to see your pictures. Also, so glad that your sweet daughter is just fine. That was a scary thing to happen to her an I am so glad that she is fine. She certainly had an angel in heaven watching out after her. Have a great weekend. Love & blessings from NC!
