How things look on the outside….
How things look on the inside….
Oh my, SO much going on! So many decisions yet to be made! God’s timing is ALWAYS perfect, I know, but He sure seems to love to add a good dose of drama 😉
Things we are waiting on…
* TA…when will it arrive?
* CA… when will we travel?
* Travel… who will go?
* Pending grants… yes? no? maybe so?
* Shepherd… how will he do? How will he cope?
* Our house… when will it sell?
* Our next house… when will we find one?
* Our move… when will it happen?
* Shepherd’s feet… when and how will we travel to Iowa for treatment?
* Our other kids… how will they do with all this change?
Just a glimpse into what’s going on in this old- and- getting- older brain of mine. Thank goodness I know that God has everything under control! Just waiting on Him to reveal the next step in the path He has laid out of us… (before I get an ulcer…)
I’ll keep you posted!
I’m praying for you girl! You’re right HE’S in charge so all will work out perfectly!
What an adventure!
When it rains it pours, and makes the flowers bloom! I know you can handle anything that is blown your way, please keep us posted on the progress…like your TA for Shepherd!
WOW! It will work out. I’m praying that TA comes soon. I’m ready for that baby to come home.

Oh Stephanie, our minds are thinking alike (does that make them “great”?) only I’m substituting “Ella” for “Shepherd” and different types of doctors/procedures.
This wait is so hard!
I’d better get moving on my MAW info, because I don’t want to be scrambling when our TA finally gets here!
You sure are juggling a lot of balls in the air. What a blessing it is to know that God will have each one land in just the right place at just the right time. Can you imagine trying to get through all that you’re going through without this knowledge?
I’ll be praying for you as you await His plan to unfold.
Sending you a big hug (( ))
Yikes! I have an ulcer just thinking about it WITH you. Can’t imagine…..I love the imagery you put up. Isn’t that how it is sometimes??? The waves crash and the storms rage and we are all unsettled inside and what a wonderful blessing that God can help our inside match our outside. I am so anxious to see what the path and timing is for you!!!
Hang in there Super Mom. If anyone can handle all of this, it’s you guys!
Wow, you have a lot on your plate right now!
oooooh, girl! glad to know your anchor is in firm foundation!
Wow Girl, you do have lots going on…I completely forgot about the move thrown in there…yikes. I know that God will give you and chris the strength to know exactly what to do when HE is ready.

Whoo! That is a lot to have on your plate! But you’re right, His timing is always perfect. Dedicate each day to Him first and the rest will fall into place.
I will be praying for you! Sometimes it is hard to feel His calmness when things seem so unknown. If anyone can do it YOU can but I know you still to be lifted up with the rest of us.

Oh yes, the uncertainties of life! They teach us peace, don’t they?
I’m praying for your family…and I anxiously await God’s answers to your questions! It will be so neat to look back and see His hand orchestrating everything perfectly!
In the meantime…hold on tight, it’s gonna be one big adventure! ; )
Mom To Six says
Saying prayers for you! And thank you for the reminder that He is in control…something I needed to hear tonight. 🙂
Thinking of you as you count down the days to TA, CA, THE DAY … all the A’s!!!!!
great photo analogy and I can relate!!
Your pictures reminded me of the quote “Sometimes God calms the storm, and sometimes He lets the storm rage and calms His child”
Wishing you peace as you wait on so many fronts:-).
Whew!! That is one list you got there! You are always in my prayers & I know He will work it all out! Deep breaths!! 🙂
Oh…I so know how you feel Stefanie! Just keeping following Him…He is so faithful and will not lead you wrong!
Praying for you!
Wow—I think I feel like that a lot of the time. I am praying for you friend. you seem to be able o do it all so well.
Qiuqiu's parents says
So, what’s your trick to staying calm on the outside? I never look calm when I’m not! Wishing you peace and quick answers to all your questions! What a relief it will be when you’ve successfully weathered this storm!
Well, I hear God uses cracked pots, sooooo….
Thinking of and praying for you. He will give you strength, peace, and mercy, just as He has before! Hang in there, friend!
We got our TA today – how about you? I sure hope so! I know you are feeling stressed – me too, but with God’s help we can handle this too.
