In Your Arms

Sigh.

I was sent a song in an email that I wanted to share. It was in response to the post I wrote on Sunday about prayer. I've heard the song before, but just listened to it again and I'm reminded how quickly I can let my thoughts get ahead of me.



Waiting for one last thing that's being checked into, but it does look like we're going to be going a different route. I think the part of it that is the hardest, is that I had gotten it in my mind that I was ready to settle. I thought about bringing Cale home and starting a family-moving on with life. It's an exciting thought! It's just not that easy, and it's going to take time. I want whatever is best for him, whatever direction the Lord is leading, it just means me handing over all of my "wants" that have been building up the last few weeks. It's going to be better for Cale so I'm not complaining...well, maybe not complaining a lot ;)

Tonight is going to be a HUGE night! I haven't stayed the night with Cale in a very long time. I had promised Mama when she left NC that I would go to my bed every night and try to get a good night sleep. Over the last month, we've been working on a goal with Cale and when he could make it, the prize was me getting to stay all night with him! I'm really excited and so is he! The staff will still have to come in through the night, so I may not get great sleep, but it's ok! I won't have to say good night to him and then leave...I'll get to stay in his arms! :)

...and the whole Cale eating veggies thing-it's over. He says "Ewe!" to everything now!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

  1. Kathleen, just know that "Father Knows Best". Whatever the plan, He knows just how to comfort you for the disappointment of postponing settling for now, and He knows the best way to bring Cale along in recovery. I am praying for you to feel God's comfort in the embrace of your husband this evening as you rest in each other's arms, both embraced in His comfort. Be still and know that He is God!

    ps. maybe Cale not liking veggies is a good thing since he didn't like them before :)
