Where I have been...

So, I have been absent for a few weeks. As Facebook tells it I have been away for a month. So this is a post about musings...

What have I seen in the past month?
      So glad YOU ASKED!
I have seen relationships restoring
I have seen God provide money for a flight, wonderful people to help on said flights. Sophia dear Sophia an Ukrainian Christian Grandma, playing with my dear baby, holding toys, help put my baby down for a much needed sleep and helped carry my bags, advising me to TRUST IN THE LORD, AND HEAR HIS VOICE, covering me in prayer, all on the confines of a plane. And that dear Grandma in the airport in Calgary watching my luggage, so I could feed my screaming baby, helping me carry my bags to the plane. And I cant forget any of the stuards,  very helpful. Thanks West jet for another great experience!

I have seen what God does, when someone says Yes! And I am addicted to OBEDIENCE!
I have learned to be expectant, and ACT ON IT.
side note: I was on a mission trip to Guatemala 14 yrs ago and after being there almost a month we went to McDonalds and I ordered a Big Mac. That Big Mac was so unbelievably good! I still think about it, secretly dreaming for it. THAT'S HOW I WANT TO EXPECT GOD!!!

I have spent 48 hours with only 8 of those sleeping
I have seen one of the greatest bands, NEEDTOBREATHE!! In an incredibly intimate setting, where the POWER OF GOD fell during the song Multiply

I have seen my daughter feel the ocean, held my baby niece, touched my sister's pregnant belly, witnessed my beautiful older sister get married, unwrapped heirlooms from my precious Grandma Fortune, spent valuable time with my Aunt and Uncle(baby genius's), drank fantastic coffee(lots of it, thank you Mom, Peter and Donald), seen many sunrises and beautiful mountains, embraced my Grandma, looked at old photos, made new memories,became sleep-deprived for all very good reasons

Now today on the longest day of the year, I am going to make the choices to be joyful, enjoy children, to see my God in unexpected places, to seek to be used and obedient when called....

Your love is like radiant diamonds
Bursting inside us we cannot contain
Your love will surely come find us
Like blazing wild fires singing Your name

God of mercy sweet love of mine
I have surrendered to Your design
May this offering stretch across the skies
And these Halleluiahs be multiplied

 Thanks for checking in, lets be EXPECTANT TOGETHER!
