On much more pleasant notes the day of the accident I learned that my 35 yr old niece is pregnant. She has a daughter who just turned 10. I was so surprised. Then yesterday a family friend who is the mother of 5 beautiful girls had a baby boy! So happy for them. Baby news is always exciting.
My girl K is due to have my grandson last part of May. I have come to the realization I won't be there for the birth. That pains my heart greatly. I at least wanted to be there to care for toddler grandson while mommy and daddy were at the hospital. I have prayed and prayed about it and it appears that God is making preparation for them...without me. Makes me sad, but I accept what God desires for my girl and for me.
"There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished—he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus."
Justified Freely, Redemption through Christ Jesus! We are redeemed because of one thing.
