We all know that the primary way to "hear from God" is through His Word. However, every now and then, He speaks through different people and circumstances. It's no secret we are having a hard time around our house, emotionally. God knows that and it is important to Him. He reminded me of that last night.
I was sitting (my lazy tail) in the recliner watching a movie when JP ran into the room, jumped in my lap and said, "Mommy, thank you so much for adopting me." I melted in my seat. Naturally I teared up and told him that GOD gave him to us and adoption was just a way to make us a family. He let me hold him for a while. THAT NEVER HAPPENS! In that moment, I knew that God was using JP to remind me of His blessings.
Life is so hard. At times, life is painful. I thank God for reminding me yesterday that life is still good.
