But, tell me that I would have a child in heaven watching over my two amazing, curious, clever, creative little boys to love here on earth, and a beautiful, smart, adorable, little princess, with a husband that sees me through it all; that would have made it all better. Tell me that I would have any sort of relationship with my father, but a GREAT one at that; I might not have believed you. ;)
I have a beautiful house, on the outside, on the inside, however, it is in shambles. The entire house is torn apart. We are painting, we are adding on to stairs, we are moving a kitchen from one room to another, we are making one room into two rooms and a bathroom, a kitchen into a den, a den into a living room, a living room into a bedroom...the list goes on and on, and if you were to step foot into our house right now you would think we are in way over our heads, (we are!) :) But much like my life; my house is in shambles to make it just that much more beautiful. The house was beautiful to begin with, once we make it a mess, screw everything up, and put it back together it is going to be glorious!! That is what Jesus is doing with me; I am sure.
My life was okay; then it was in shambles; and He took me to make me, mold me, to transform me; and while the process was, (and remains to be, sometimes) brutal, I can't wait to see the finished product. He took a life to make it wonderful. My life right now is wonderful; while my house is in shambles I can envision what it will be when we are (finally) done. I couldn't see that when He was transforming me; but I'm glad He could.
I continue to be so amazed with God's work in me and my family; everyday it is something new, everyday is BEAUTIFUL! And for that I thank you Lord Jesus for making life beautiful even in shambles.
