Please stop this emotional rollercoaster, and LET ME GET OFF!
After the events of last week, I'm ready for some normalcy and happy days. And I've had a little bit of that...but there are still sad things happening. Just when you're ready to poke your head out of the clouds, more sad news comes your way. Let me enlighten you...and I will save the AWESOME news for the end of this post...so we end on a happy note.
1. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know the issues and concerns with my brother...well, those issues are back again as the 3 month cycle has started again. Stink!
2. When The Colonel and I were first married, we lived in East Texas, and we met some great friends. The hubby started work with The Colonel on the same day, and I became good friends with the wife. They have 2 adorable kids - twins, a boy and girl. We've gone on family vacations with them and traveled to see them as they've moved around the country, and they've come to see us. We found out on Monday that the wife has been having an affair for over a year and is moving out of the house this week. The kids are devestated, and we're in shock. What the heck was she thinking??
Now, on to the better stuff...
We KNEW that good was going to come out of this tragedy my family has been through. I just didn't expect it to happen so quickly.
My good friend Daisy called me yesterday. She had been riding in the car with her oldest daughter (5) and talking on her cell phone about what my family has been through. When she got off the phone, her daughter started asking questions - about tornados, about what happened, why was everyone sad? Daisy told her that yes, we're sad, but we're also happy because Gary and Kim had Jesus in their hearts and they're in heaven now. Well, her daughter said that she wanted Jesus in her heart! And they pulled over on the side of the road, and she became a child of God's...my sister! Praise the Lord! Through this tragedy, a new Christian was born!
Another good thing, OF GOD, that I found out today is that Mia, who I posted about here (last paragraph), is doing amazingly well. Praise God for answered prayers. You can read the latest about her here.
