A Roller Coaster Day!

Friday, June 19, 2009

Today is one of those roller coaster of emotion days. You know the kind, when you start out on top of the world.. have a great beginning in prayer and lifting up other people in prayer... then later you find out YOU need lifting up as well! Well....it was going great, until I started thinking about my older son moving away to California, now being in Texas, California is like another whole world away when you don't travel! So....he popped online and we played some Scrabble together, and that was great, and then I realized he was moving like next week....so I got all discouraged. Later my family met him at the Outback Steakhouse, and had a wonderful dinner. Then we went to his house and he was sending different things home with each of us, things he couldn't or didn't want to take to California. So that was cool. Till I started thinking about what it meant... him being gone, and I started crying again. Then he hits me with "Oh, there is one more thing I have for you!" I'm like thinking a computer game or something, oh no..... "I accidentally got online and Southwest was having a sale...so I accidentally got you a ticket to fly out to California in August!" Well that was it, I started crying and couldn't Stop! After that we left and I cried all the way home. Dunno how I'm going to handle myself next Thursday, but somehow with God's help, I'm taking he and his wife and 2 cats to the airport! So... You people better start praying for me now! :) I'm sure that will be another roller coaster!

    Oh, Nan, what an awesome son you have! I am so sorry for the move, God has brought you to this time and he will bring you through this time. I want my kids forever so I so understand what you are saying.

    Focus on the trip to visit and the fun you will have when you do. I know that could be difficult on the way to the airport. Know that you have done a great job raising a wonderful young man. I am with you on the sadness of one leaving the nest, I would feel exactly like you do. I will say a special prayer for you that God will comfort you and assure you that things are going to be okay!

    California in August! Wow! Sounds like you had a great day with dinner and all, just try to refocus on all the things that make you smile about today. Things will level out, I promise! :-)

    Be blessed,

    Sweet Lady, You are in my prayers and I know God will make you strong.
    It's not easy letting our children go and so far away. I will pray for your son too, that God will watch and take care of him.
    Take care girlfriend and know that I am thinking of you and praying.

    Heavenly Father, I ask that you be with Nan in this rough time, to give her the strength that she needs. We know that through You all things are possible. Things that seem impossible, things that we don't feel we can do, You are there to remind us that we can, through You. All we have to do is lean on You. I thank You for that Father and for Your Grace and Mercy that You give us anew each and everyday.
    I pray this in Jesus' name, Amen
