Right Routine

This is hopefully one of Sweet Loverbrains last trips to China for a while.  And it's a LOONNGG trip!  I was musing over how good we're all doing with trips nowadays.  We've gotten adjusted to the odd routine.

Loverbrains has gotten really sweet and sensitive about it all too!!  He brought home flowers his last night...2 the hopes they live the whole time until he returns to me!
The kids are understanding that DadE is gone but loves them and is coming back...eventually...(don't you just love how Calubby stacks his graham crackers and eats one at a time...teehee)
I'm glad God works this way in me...bringing me to the understanding of just how 2 Corinthians 12 works..." For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong."
It really has EVERYthing to do with understanding that God is the ONLY one with enough strength for each test.  Yes, living alone with no tag team partner is considered a test.  I have to come to the end of me...remember Galatians 2:20, "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
Funny isn't it all comes together when you get those things right?  Then we see...Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."  I can wake up the kids...get everyone the neighbors...pray at the bus a light here...shining!  Cuz...I'm never really alone!  Duet. 31:8, "It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."
