Can't Wait for #3!!!!

My neice Amy is expecting her 3rd daughter and tomorrow is the big day!
We are going to the hospital in the morning to wait the arrival of Brooklynn!
Ashlynn and Bralynn (big sisters) are so excited as is the rest of our family.
This brings back so many memories of the anticipated arrival of my sweet daughter Andrea. It seems like it was just yesterday ...I can't hardly believe it was 19 years ago!!

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

I know that God has a plan...while HE has not showed or told it to me yet....I know HIS plan is to prosper and not harm give hope and a future!

A great friend sent me a devotion today on Shattered Dreams. I needed this devotion more than ever. I plan to share more on this at a later time.

For now... I plan to stop saying "why me?" and say "what now?" HE has a plan I must trust HIM!

Pray for Amy and baby Brooklynn...

Dear Darlene,
I don't know what is going on with your family but by your post I hear concern. Just know that I am praying for you that God will be your guide and give you perfect peace. Much love and prayers to you.

I am praying for you dear friend. I have had some recent trials myself and I know what you mean by "why me," but I will join you in tying to find out His plan for me. I hope all is well and thank you for your kind words on my blog.

I pray the new baby arrives safely. Congratulations on her birth.

Your daughter is the same age as our son. I know about the questions we often ask ourselves and our God.
What I cling to is the fact that with our God all things are possible and He is faithful to complete that which He began. I will stand on that till the day I step into eternity.

Have a good time at the hospital welcoming another one of Gods creations. :)
