Times they are a changin'

The only word I can think of to use right now is thankful.
I am thankful that I am in love with a God who unconditionally loves me and desires me. He never leaves us and he never forsakes us...that is his promise!
I am blown away by the amazing grace and mercy he has shown me.
I love the changes he is making in my heart.
I have had many life changing events over the past few months.
A big one of those was my Grandfather passing away.
I had the awesome privilege of being with him in his last days and even his last moment on this earth. I got to witness his second birth into heaven. It was incredible. Many healing events happened over that weekend and continue to happen in my life as I reflect upon my Grandfather's life and his death.
I am being drawn back to God in the most unbelievable way.
It is incredible!
I am learning to see God in all the areas of my life.
I love to see my children reflect his goodness.
Both of the kids know who God is and they love Jesus with blind faith.
They don't have to know all the answers or the whys or the latest theological debates. They just love and trust him for who he is.
I am reminded always of Jesus' words of telling us to come to him as little children. If only we could all trust and sit at his feet as children. I have this picture in my mind and the kids are NOT sitting there asking "why did these things happen to me God, why don't you do...., this isn't fair.." They are just there, loving on him and enjoying his presence.
We fuss at our kids for being whiny...when it is us as adults who are the whiny ones!!
My prayer right now is that I can sit at his feet and just be in his presence and not ask all the whys!

It is starting to look and feel like spring! I have enjoyed spending the last few days outside with the kids. It is always amazing to me how refreshing and new everything feels after the long winter. It is like being able to breathe again!
It reminds me how thankful I am for God's tender mercies in my life.
