Today I had an image of God shaking His head at me...smiling and asking "When child, when??"

You see, I woke up a bit later than usual and thought, I have 15 minutes before I need to get ready for work.  Typically, I would use this time with the Lord, after all, you can't build a relationship if you don't spend time with the one you love.  But this morning I thought I would help my hubby (as he was running behind) and I would water the flower pots, herb and vegetable garden.  I can't believe it.  I put off time with God to water the plants.  So, imagine my surprise when two hours later we are having a downpour...boy, did I feel silly!  It saddened me that I missed an opportunity, a chance and I had a choice!  Tonight, I am thanking God that He loves me enough to help make me aware of the choices I make...He loves me enough to understand...and He loves me enough that I get another chance!  I would love to say that tomorrow I will make the right choice,I know better than that...however, I sure am going to try.

I would like to quick comment about my post on revisiting the roots.  Yesterday was a mile stone in our marriage life, as we haven't been able to revisit the past without the wounds of our mistakes bleeding causing us to relive the pain.  Yesterday, we faced our mistakes and celebrated the glory of God's redemption!  It was good to remember and now it is time to ponder...and I have a feeling that God is going to use these "hurts" to help others find "HOPE!"

Thank you all for your continued kind comments and support as I travel down this path to healing.

God is already using you, and I bet you've made a difference in more lives than you know.

Kim, I agree with Brenda! God is already using you!

And I want you to know that I received your package for my celebration to the end of radiation on Friday.

Kim I must confess I was the kid who got in my parents closet when I was 12 years to try on my clothes they got me for Christmas 2 weeks before Christmas and then neatly wrapped the present back up so they wouldn't know:)

My anticipation of what was in that box consumed me as if it were speaking to me "Open me..Open Me" Well I could not let that voice inside me Not open the box so again I must confess I did peek at the box and I LOVED IT!

Your celebration box is sooo neat. You all (that is southern for everyone) it has streamers, a hawaian lay, celebration horn, two wine glasses, bc soxs, a book on blissful things which is really cool. Kim this is a wonderful idea! Are you marketing this idea? I will be taking pictures on Friday! THANK YOU my dear blogging sister! You made my day
