God is Faithful

If you’re a regular reader, you know I reserve Fridays for the QOTW (quotes of the week).  There has certainly been no shortage of those around here; however, not many are family friendly!  It was a rougher week than usual – with Luke, banks, work, kids, etc.  It’s just the way life sometimes rolls.  I should make a mental note that when you start the week off with a 7:30am developmental assessment of your preemie, you can just about guarantee it will be an emotional week.

That it was.

When Archbishop Aymond (or ABIA as we affectionately call him, in honor of Austin’s airport), was here, his major theme as a Bishop was simple:  God is faithful.  I can’t remember a time we had a discussion with him that he didn’t say it.  It rings true on so many levels and it really hit home this week, for me.

There was the morning I had the assessment and just as we were wrapping up, a fellow preemie mom called just to chat.  He sent me a pick-me-up when I needed it most.  God is faithful.

When things went horribly wrong with a financial issue, a brother-in-law provided some much-needed advice.  And, we’re ending up better than where we started.  God is faithful.

When my head knew I needed to register Luke for school, but my heart was not at peace, a sudden teacher change and a great visit with Luke’s OT and ST eased all my fears and worries.  God is faithful.

Today’s usual neighborhood playdate turned into a sweet reunion with a NICU mom, I was reassured there are many who “get it.”  God is faithful.

When I thought He couldn’t show me one more sign that He was, in fact, faithful, my funny 4yo performed the most awesome “dance” for me in her prettiest dress.  God is faithful.

Quite honestly, the list keeps going.  Crazy, right?  It’s as if God *really* wants me to remember He is faithful.  I’m down with that.  {Note to God:  thank you}

We, as usual, have a busy but very full and fun weekend ahead:  a photography class for me (I cannot wait!), a soccer party, a birthday party, Mass and a sleepover with Nana and Papa.  But, I’m pretty sure my haircut tonight will make me smile the biggest.  When I win the lottery I’m hiring a hairstylist.  Next week, you’re in for all sorts of fun:

HDYDI:  Organizing Party Supplies (’tis the season around here)
Top Ten:  Teacher Gift Ideas
A ton of fun party photos
Two Guest Posts:  Austin Catholic New Media and Catholic Mothers Online
Giveaway Drawing ends on Friday @8am (get to entering)

Make it a great weekend…and thanks for letting me put it all other there.  Love y’all.
