Day 45: God's calling
I went on a scavenger hunt today to find someone God put on my heart weeks ago.... I went on four different sixth floors, into two different parking garages, and asked nine different people for help..... I knew from all of that there was a reason the devil didn't want me to find this "special" someone!
As I was getting ready to walk into the hospital room I could barely hold back the tears... This is odd for me! I've never met this person, but knew I needed to! Needless to say three hours later I felt like we had been friends my entire life. I actually even have tears rolling down my face as I write this.... All of the emotions this person is feeling I have felt....
August 30th..... usually I'm running around like a chicken this time of year... Final weekend before the farm opens, week before Wednesday night church programs begin, parades advertising the farm, lining up all of our help for the fall, trying to find sitters,.... you get my point INSANE! Then there is August 30th, 2015 when the things that used to matter don't.... The reality that the only thing that matters is loving God and loving others.
The planner that used to have something on EVERY SINGLE DAY now looks empty... Those events, dinners, functions, etc. are now so unimportant to me..... I know this week is going to be busy with Labor Day weekend coming up, but what would happen if you cleared off an evening just to be home with your family?
Abraham Lincoln once said, "In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
I understand the term "busy," but is it how you want to live your life?

Family is very important and sometimes the people we call family do not even share the the genes. Praying for all families.

This is necessary, we all should plan on how we should achieve our goals in life and also to reach that goal we must be dedicated enough to give all our efforts and sacrifices to achieve our goals. It is said in the article that it's not the years in your life that count, It's the life in your years and for me this is so true and a very meaningful statement.

This is the quote that is on Shannon's Dads grave. He passed away at the age of 29 when Shannon was 10 months old. Because of Hannah we understand the kind of emotional roller coaster you are experiencing. Please know you all have been in our prayers and will continue to be. If u ever need someone to talk to or need someone just be there to listen or just a shoulder to cry on I offer mine.
