The tears came today

November 18, 09
I didn’t cry when I told my family goodbye. Not when I gave my dad our last hug in August. Or when I hugged Monica good bye. And when Rachel and Jessica came with mom to Louisiana my eyes watered, but I didn’t cry. So why now?
In a few days we will have been here for a whole month. I really enjoy Island life. And I’m very content taking care of my daughters and husband. Still, today we are at the house in the north shore. I love this house, It’s beautiful with a breathtaking view. I feel very safe here. I’m not going to go into detail, but I’m ready to be settled. To put MY kitchen things on a shelf. To have a real dresser...not a suitcase. To not have to tell my kids, “we’re moving in a couple days” all the time. I’ve been patient 4 1/2 years. Lord, I need your presence in a special way today.

I know those tears! I'm praying for you, Maria! May our sweet Heavenly Father wrap His arms of immeasurable love around you and bathe you in His grace and peace!
