Knew All Along

A group of my Blogging friends are choosing a different prompt each month.  This months prompt is...For I Know The Plans.

Those of you who know me, are very aware, that I am a big believer in miracles.   Jesus, performed  miracles throughout The New Testament...probably, many more than we even know of.  And what He has done in my life... is totally miraculous!
When Dr.'s told us that we should consider Adoption because we would never have children of our own...we, (Tomer & I) accepted it without bitterness or questioning.  Why?  Because we had given our lives to Christ and trusted Him, in all things.

So, we carried on...fulfilling his calling (so we thought) working in Children's Ministries  and all these years later, still do, that's where He put us.
But, what man, had told us to plan on doing...was not God's plan for us!  His plan, was to bless us with 2 wonderful daughters and 6 amazing grandbabies to fill our lives with the joy of watching them grow.
We, are blessed that they enjoy spending time with us. Blessed, that our Ian rides his bike over almost everyday or that Maddy and Em, know that they, can show up anytime and their friends are welcome to tag along (which they often do) and the little guys long to spend the night and come through the door with big smiles.  But, what makes my heart sing is when they refer to this house as home! 
Yes, God knew and being a Mom and a Gram... was His plan all along!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11
