Amazing...

The last week has been filled with events that have caused me to pause.  I have spent a large portion of time in thought about so many things.  While my hands have worked my mind has questioned, it has pondered, I have felt anger, peace, and ultimately joy.

And then over the weekend Josie became the teacher and I the student.  On Saturday night I put Sarah down and went into Josie's room to pray.  She was sitting in her bed with an enormous smile on her face.  She was so excited.   She said "You know Mom, when you think about all the things that God has done, all the things He has made isn't it just amazing?  And that He sent Jesus for us because He loves us that much, AMAZING!  God is just amazing Mama... I love thinking about Him and all the things He has done."

Just like that I was schooled.  Who am I to question?  Who am I?  It is indeed amazing.  It is amazing what He has done, what He will do.  And I am overjoyed to hear those words from a little girl who has lost her sister, a child who has seen the hard edge of life.  She has gone through it and still she rejoices.  I have so much to learn from her.
