Do you ever wake from a dream and wonder where am I? My life is kinda like that right now.
Noah is happily checked in at college and Abby is snug as a bug at home recovering from open heart but doing absolutely fantastic. It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks!!
When I got off the plane and returned home I sat a minute and just looked around. It was a very strange feeling as there were no boys running through my house and refrigerator. The no activity was very strange for me. A house full of kids has been my life for the last 18 years. So, for just a moment I heard someone whisper in my ear “ Sherry you are totally alone now.” BUT I know the whispering of the one prowling around looking for someone to devour very clearly. I can assure you that whispering was met with this response… “ UMMMM NO I AM NOT!!”
Jesus has been with me every step of this journey without Jeff and HE will never leave me. I have too many friends to count, a family who loves and adores me, beautiful children who need me and grandbabies that I assure you will keep me busy. Not to mention that I have a full time job with In His Grip Ministry. I am also writing a little book to hopefully help others learn how to choose joy while in the midst of suffering or really just how to choose joy in our lives.
Every morning I will wake up and say “ Okay Lord, how do I make a difference in this world today?”
Here is what God’s word said to me this week as everything is changing again in my life and I am wondering where I am…
“See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland. “ Isaiah 43: 19
God is making a way! Sweet dreams my friends!!
