God is faithful, and He showed me that again this morning. Joshua, my oldest son, is going to James Madison University this morning, and I had been feeling rather blue about him not being around as much. Yes, I am so proud of him; yes, I am excited for him, and yes, I also know that we will still see him a lot. Yet, I found myself sitting around looking at pictures like this one…and you know the end result of that.

Yesterday, I wrote this quote on J’s facebook wall:
“God gives us dreams a size too big so that we can grow in them.” – Anonymous
This morning, on my daily inspirational flip calendar, there was this:
“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
Coincidence or God’s reassurance & plans for Joshua? You know what I think. Then I went outside to walk my sweet dog, and there were angel rays..those beautiful sun beams that shine through the lifting fog and kiss the ground. And God knows that I love them. It was like He was speaking very loudly to me of His love and care for me and our whole family. So, to make a very long story shorter, I feel better…Joshua has exciting plans ahead, dreams to dream, and a purpose from God to fulfill. And I get to watch it unfold. How cool is that? 🙂 Slainte, Lisa
