Grayson and have made it to the 4th... now to just make it through the rest of the weekend. I had family start to come in yesterday for the week. My parents and brother got here yesterday. My cousin Peyton is flying in from Panama City, Fl this morning...and she actually just landed in Atlanta.
Tomorrow we are expecting to have my Uncle and two Aunts, and another cousin arrive...then on Monday Taylor's Dad and Stepmom arrive. We wil have a house full of family here and God willing Grayson will get to meet them all.
We plan on having a lazy day today eating BBQ sandwiches (with cole slaw of course) and shooting fireworks tonight.
I want to say how much I appreciate all of the thoughts and prayers coming our way. To know that we have so many people from Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas and all across the country praying for us is amazing. It's like I said before, a humbling experience and a blessing to know that Grayson ( and Kinsey) have made such an impression.
I have had so many comments on how strong I am during everything we have going on... but I don't feel that way. In fact the closer we get, the more nervous I get. All the strength I have doesn't come from me, I have prayed for all of it. If it were just me...I am too broken to deal with all we have coming up. All my strength right now comes from God, and it's all directed to Grayson right now.
I know that I want him to experience nothing but peace and strength and love...and God willing I will stay strong enough through Faith to be able to show him that.
There will be time for mourning...and God willing that will be a long time from now. Now is a time for Faith, Hope and Love.
I received a few Bible verses from someone who commented on my Blog. They hit home, and will be some that I have in my mind through this weekend and beyond.
"...I am He, He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you." Isaiah 46:4
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
Happy 4th of July everyone... and remember all of those who keep us safe and free today.
God Bless all of our troops fighting for our freedom now, the ones who fought in the past...and the ones who died to keep us safe.
