Today I received a fun text from my husband. He was in Dallas for a conference for techy people. He told me before he left that there would be some opportunities to win a Wii. Well, we have been wanting a Wii for a while, but truly couldn't afford that luxury right now. When he told me there would be some given away I told him that I would pray that we would win one. On the way to school in the mornings it is our practice to pray so on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings I prayed with the girls and at the end of my prayer I said something like this, "Lord, it would sure be fun to win a Wii. You are good no matter what and we will serve You no matter what. But, we sure would love to win a Wii. David's text today said, "I can't believe it. I won! Isn't God gracious. Luv u," and then just a moment later another one came that said, "OMG! I really won!" I got on the phone and called him and asked him if he was just kidding me and he assured me that he wasn't. Then I said, "do you know what OMG means?" because for one thing I couldn't believe that he was talking "text talk" to me, he just doesn't do that. He said, "oh my goodness?" and I said, well, to us it does, but to the rest of the world it is Oh my God" and then he said, "Well, I thought I should show some excitement and be expressive about this." If you know David you will know how funny that is. He can be sort of an Eeyore about even fun things and just is such a steady eddie about everything so he was trying to be more excited about something that should be exciting. I'm not sure if that makes sense, but what I wanted to tell you is that our good God, who is good no matter what, saw fit in His divine plan to allow us to win a Wii. "My boundary lines are drawn for me in pleasant places." I'm just saying....God is AWESOME all the time and we are humbled and blessed by this gift to our family. Just thought I'd share so that you will remember to ask God for the fun things in life too...He's good no matter what...but just maybe you will see Him work and then receive the desire of your heart just because He loves you so! He does, you know!!!
Celebrating His sweetness,
