Randomness from my weekend

I do have an update on Linda. Some people at my work and I thought that we would try to help them for Christmas instead of playing a Dirty Santa game. It just moves me beyond belief that these people would care for a family that they do not even know. So, I called Linda and asked her about it and she asked me to come bye (the gas station) when I got off of work tonight. So I went and her and her son were there. After a year I really felt that the time was right to share about having a relationship with Christ and they were receptive. I also got to talk to Kevin (her son) about his feelings and why God would allow this. Anyway, I just have to trust that the word of the Lord will not return void (Isa. 55). As I stood there talking with them tonight I just prayed that the Lord would give me boldness and sensitivity to their situation. I have no idea what they are going through and I am not about to pretend to.

On another note...Rod brought Morgan to see me at work tonight. They don't have too many outings together so I could hardly wait for them to get there!! She was devastated, as usual, when I left for work today and it always breaks my heart. I told Rod that she didn't even know where I worked and that I would love it if he would bring her. He brought her without her stroller (I know this will mean she thinks she will be free from the stroller from here on out...but she is wrong). I was sitting at the conceirge desk when she came in and that big girl was the cutest thing I have ever seen. She was sporting her Christmas outfit and her backpack. Her eyes were full of wonder as she walked along. Then, she saw her momma and cheers of excitement broke out! I am not kidding. She was shocked to come there and find her mommy! I am so thankful to the Lord for that little sweetheart. I tell her all of the time that NO ONE and I mean NO ONE on this earth will EVER love her as much as I do. I think she knows it. Her dad and MiMi and Pop come in just behind me! She rode the carousel on my break and got really brave since her daddy was watching her. Normally she trembles and puts me in a headlock. With her dad there she was even holding on with one hand!

I have so much to say about some stuff the Lord is teaching me in Hosea but I don't have time to type it tonight. My home is suffering from me working so much. I will be off from Tues until Sunday! Whoo hooo!!

I love you all!!

I am so glad you had a chance to share the Good News with them. I'll be praying for God to water and cultivate those seeds you planted!

And what a precious story about your daughter's visit to work. :) She is such a cutie! I'm sure it made your day to have them show up. :)

Oh Jenny! I am sooooo very proud of you for stepping out there and taking a chance Linda and with God. That is being obedient and He will take care of those seeds you planted on His behalf.

I'm glad you have some time off from work. I was off for Thanksgiving and it is just wonderful to have that rest. Enjoy!
