Troubled Waters.....Feeling Down and Needing Prayers....

As many of you know I have been trying to plan
a trip to go see my family back east. So far we
had a pretty bad ice/snow storm down here in
Ga. last week. My husband and I were going
to try again this week. Yesterday after church
I received a call from my oldest son....that
my daughter-in-law and little Lucia would not
be available when we were going to be there
to see her.....also, some more bad news that
I can't disclose here right now. I will have to
wait till probably towards the end of February
now maybe...because my husband will be tied up
with work as well. There is more stuff.....but,
again I can't say anything at this point in time.

It is so very hard to be far away from your family.
When you have grandchildren they grow so fast
and so many things you miss out on. Pictures
are great but there is nothing like holding
them and hearing them and being close.

If I told you all the things I have gone through
over the years with family you would probably
wonder how I have ever kept my sanity...sometimes
I wonder this myself.

I do know one thing...and this is what gets me
through the tough times that God is all around
me and knows how i feel and how my heart
breaks over things that I have no control over.
I know that there is His perfect timing in everything
and I will wait on Him.

Being human is hard and difficult and littered
with dissapointments, it can get overwhelming
many times. I know you All can understand that.
We all go though it, no one is immune to the
hard times.

So I am asking for prayers I am asking for
your shoulders to cry on....just for a little
while....ok?

I appreciate you all more than
you will ever know.

Thank you,
Susan
