A VERY INTERESTING TUESDAY



HELLO SWEET PEAS
*
SO HOW ARE YOU THIS FINE 
TUESDAY EVENING???
HOPE IT HAS BEEN A GOOD DAY
 FOR YOU.
*
*
I HAVE TO SAY IT HAS BEEN AN INTERESTING
 DAY FOR US.......................
*
WE GOT UP AND
 DID THE YARD EARLY THIS MORNING.
*
THEN WE GOT A CALL FROM A FRIEND OF MY
 DAUGHTERS, ASKING IF WE COULD COUNSEL
HER FRIEND AND HUBBY,  WE ARE SUPPOSE
TO START WITH ANOTHER YOUNG COUPLE
NEXT WEEK, AND WE ALREADY HAVE THE
 ONE WE ARE PRESENTLY WORKING WITH,
SO THIS WILL BE THREE COUPLES.
*
  WE ARE REALLY WONDERING
WHAT THE LORD IS UP TO IN ALL OF THIS???
DOES THE LORD HAVE SOME SORT OF
LONGER REACHING MARRIAGE MINISTRY
 IN MIND FOR US??  WONDER, WONDER!!  LOL
*
THEN WE WERE INSPIRED TO WATCH SOME
 MARRIAGE VIDEOS, PRAYED TO MAKE SURE
TAKING ON ANOTHER COUPLE WAS THE LORD'S
DIRECTION FOR US..........AS JIM HAS TO SPEND 
TIME LOOKING FOR JOBS AND WORKING ON
SOMETHING THE LORD MAY BE LEADING HIM
TO START A BUSINESS WITH, AND EXERCIZING
REGULARLY, AMONGST OTHER THINGS.
WE FELT THE LORD SAID YES!!
*
 WE ARE JUST SURPRISED AT HOW THEY ARE
COMING TO US AS WELL.  TWO OF THE COUPLES
 DON'T ATTEND OUR CHURCH, WHICH IS DIFFERENT.
 AND THE 3RD COUPLE WORKS NIGHTS, BUT SINCE
JIM IS HOME WE CAN MEET WITH THEM DAY OR
NIGHT. COULD IT BE THAT GOD CARES SO MUCH 
ABOUT THESE YOUNG COUPLES AND THEIR
 MARRIAGES THAT HE HAS ALLOWED MY HUBBY
 TO BE HOME FOR THIS PURPOSE.  I LOVE 
THAT THOUGHT....
CAUSE I BELIEVE IT IS TRUE THAT GOD DOES
CARE THAT MUCH, NOW WHETHER THAT
IS THE ONLY REASON JIM IS HOME
 REMAINS TO BE SEEN!!
*
*
SOMETHING ELSE REALLY NEAT HAPPENED
TODAY TOO, THAT SEEMS LIKE MAYBE A
CONFIRMATION ABOUT THE BUSINESS.
*
THEN I GOT A MESSAGE ON FACEBOOK
FROM SOMEONE I WASN'T SURE I KNEW.
THEY ASKED IF I HAD WORKED AT A CERTAIN
 PHARMACY IN A CERTAIN TOWN IN THE
 EARLY 70'S?  NOW THAT GOT MY
 ATTENTION.....CAUSE I HAD,
 SO I PUT ON MY THINKING CAP, AFTER 
ALL THIS WAS 40 YEARS AGO....
AND WAS TRYING TO REMEMBER THIS LADY
 WHO WAS THEN A TEENAGER AND SHE DID
LOOK FAMILIAR, SO I DID VAGUELY
REMEMBER HER.  ANYWAY. I WROTE HER 
BACK AND WAS AMAZED AT HOW MUCH
 STUFF SHE REMEMBERED AND SHE HAS BEEN
 IN TOUCH WITH THE LADY I USED TO WORK
 FOR AND SOME OF THE OTHER PEOPLE I
WORKED WITH AS WELL, AND SHE LIVES
 LESS THAN AN HOUR AWAY FROM ME.
HOW AMAZING IS THAT!!
*
I HAVE TO SAY................
I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THE 
SERENDIPITOUSLY DELIGHTFUL THINGS
 THE LORD SENDS OUR WAY.
*
NOW TO FIGURE OUT WHAT
 HE IS UP TO???  LOL
CAUSE I BELIEVE HE IS ALWAYS UP
TO SOMETHING GOOD!!
*
HAVE A DELIGHTFUL EVENING
SWEET PEAS,
*
HUGS AND BLESSINGS,
NELLIE

Nellie,
It is exciting to read about what God is doing! The Lord used you and your husband to impact my life and it was only for a brief moment. You have a lot of insight and tools to share with others. We need people like you willing to be vulnerable and mentor others! Continue to pray as the months keep going faster to my departure to El Salvador :) I am looking forward to it. Also praise things are going better with the family. Last week my mom told me that her and my dad are proud of me!!!! HUGE!!! didn't really want to post it on the blog but don't have an email. However, I do have some news I would like to share with you but can't on the blog. If you could send me you email that would be great. My email is hbraden@latinamericamission.org. Thanks so much for your prayers!

Love,
Heather

Wow - it really does seem as if the Lord "is up to something" in your life. Reminds me of the old song "I just feel like something good is about to happen..."!! I am excited to see all that He has in store - and it is so sweet to watch your spirit in it all. You are a blessing (isn't any wonder you could be used as a counselor!!)

Tell me about it!!! I have been having a great time this year at pre-planning! The meetings have really been worthwhile! And you'll never guess what happened today! One of our new teachers came up and said, "I was in your Kindergarten class!!!" Whoa, did that ever make me feel "young!" LOL!! Sure enough, when I got home I looked back into my classroom pictures and there she was in 1993!
I was so proud (not for me, but her) I had to go ask my Principal if she knew I had taught her! My Kndg team were all aglow as well. I told them, "You just wait. Your time is coming, ha!!"

All my love to you,
Susie
