Thank you all for your prayers. We learned tonight that court has been postponed. We appreciate so much everyone praying, and we will let you know when we hear we have a new court date.
I was reading today in John 11 earlier the story of Mary and Martha and the death of their dear brother Lazarus. In their eyes Jesus was late.. too late. Jesus saw the whole picture though, and He wasn't late.. He was right on time, and they received a glorious miracle when Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.
Jesus' plans and timing are perfect. It is so hard when we don't see the whole picture and we question just as Martha questioned.."Lord," Martha said to Jesus, "if you had been here, my brother would not have died. John 11:21.. Jesus didn't rebuke her for her words. He understands when His children question...and ask why.
I hated telling our children tonight as I knew they would cry. I hate it when my children are hurting and crying and Jesus feels the same...only deeper I am sure. He wept with Mary and Martha over Lazarus' death. We cried tears here tonight, but we know Jesus knows when the perfect timing is for our boys to come home.
He is a good God and His timing is perfect. He sees the whole picture. His ways and His timing are best. He is working and we praise Him in the sun and in the rain...when we see and when we don't see; we know He is good and He is at work.
I know this is just a SMALL storm along the way of our journey to bring our boys home..
