As I cross the threshold of my Gram’s house when something exciting would happen or if I was looking a little glum, she would sing to me. No sooner than the door shut behind me, Gram was singing, “There she is Miss America…” until my smile was contagiously big. Yesterday I could hear my Gram singing as I checked my email in the a.m. I nearly jumped out of my sandals and started doing a happy dance as I logged off.
The only thing keeping me grounded was an intense migraine. In spite of this, the joy, thankfulness and excitement bubbled over. I cried as I went to call my parents and husband ~ Oh my Gosh! I know God is amazing and does above and beyond all we could imagine yet each time He does, I find myself humbled and tearful. Tears of joy and thanksgiving overwhelmed me…Our God is an amazing God!
After hearing a joy in my mom’s voice so long removed, I called my hubby who “just happen to be on break” (God even arranged our lunch schedules yesterday) I thought about interrupting my daughter at school but decided it might upset the teachers and distract her for the remainder of her day so I restrained myself and waited until we were both home from school.
Have I teased you enough? Remember yesterday I said I had sent my book proposal to a publisher for review on Monday? I was praying and expecting a six week turn around but God had other plans ~ I heard from the publishing house and my proposal has moved to the next level!! I’ll continue to praise God and pray for His leading for my book. It has always been in His hands…Will you join me in prayer over the next six weeks?
Oh my goodness…tears, celebration and thankfulness.
