The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

Launching Our Youngest
Celebrating the "launching" of our youngest son today. Even though we have been empty nesters for a few years now, our youngest was a "bounce back" during semester breaks and summertime while he was going to school. Graduation was last December and he is ready to be on his own. The accident is a distant memory, and we have been able to see God working in the whole situation for all of our good...it has helped us continue to let go...and it has helped him learn to trust God.(most specifically in finding a car that met his needs in his price range) He is on his way back to upstate New York today (he went to school up there) and although he is not sure what he is going to be doing, he has plans...lots of "irons in the fire". We are praying that God would direct his steps....so many decisions ahead. As a mom I can watch and pray...asking the Lord to help me trust him with Matt's life...trying to remember God loves him more than I ever could.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight" Proverbs 3:3-4
