truly this was a day to rejoice. my son came to church for the first time in a very long time. many of you may know my son is a wayward child i call him. he was on the streets, drugs, drink, and jail a few times. i have prayed very hard a long for him. he has gotten a job he seems to enjoy, a new family, and today he showed up at our church. the joy that i felt in seeing him walk through the doors of our church. my heart was full. the lord was smiling down on this little family today.
now i don't hold to the notion that he is a changed man. if i did i would be blind. i'm a parent first a foremost and i have faith in the lord. i hope he is where he was meant to be today and that with daily prayer and workings he will continue to grow. i have that little devil in me thinking a bit of negativity as the last few years have taught me a great lesson on life. drug addicts are the best liars and the devil comes in many shapes and sizes. but i have hope, as a mother, that my son will return to me. he was a wonderful child, but his teen years, and friends, and choices did not do him justice.
i know this blog is for whatever ails us at the time. i'm thankful to you all for allowing me to get out my feelings as i need to. to vent, shout for joy, pray, and tell my secrets. thank you all for letting me be me. i will end this blog today with a much deserved hug for my friends, teams, and sp. any of you going through things need to remember you are not alone. we all have our trials and hurdles we have to jump over. sometimes they are small and sometimes they are very tall but one at a time we get over them. believe me some hurdles take a bit of planning and a lot of effort to get over but in the end we shall succeed in all we do. have a blessed day michelle.
