God In The Text Messaging Business

Just wanted to interrupt my blog break for just a few short minutes.... Most of you know that I have a son that has been estranged from me for over 24 years now.. I hear from him once in a great while.I have prayed over the years for God to mend our hearts and I hold tight to that hope. 
I heard from him tonight for the first time on Mothers day.It was a simple text message but God is in the text messaging business... It was late, around 10:15 or so but it was the world to me.
Just wanted to share that with you my blogging buddies that I love so much. We must ALWAYS remember that when we remove ourselves from helping our Father God , HE will do the work that we so earnestly believe HIM to do...........
It was JUST a text message, but to a mothers heart it was a gentle warm hug from a Father God to reassure her that HE is busy restoring her son back to his mother.

I pray that your Mothers Day was filled with much joy.......

I will be back in a few weeks.....

Denise,

Praise God for His goodness. I'm so glad that Darryl sent you this text message. Any words from him would have made your heart sing.

Still praying, my friend.
Blessings and hugs,

Praising God for His Mercies!!!

Did not know you had a son, but knowing that the text message had to come from the heart.

Love you, my friend.

I'm truly so happy that you heard from your son on Mother's Day, that's so special. And to have it not be another heartbreaker is even better. Praise God.

Oh, dear sister...I can feel your joy and praise to the Lord...sometimes the little things that are JUST this or JUST that are the ones that touch that deep place in our heart with a peace and assurance even greater than if something BIG happens...thank you for sharing this precious hug from the Father....

WOWOW Denise,
That is so awesome......"yes God is on the move." I like that about Him too...it's always something fresh and new going on yet...HE stays the same.
Have a great little break.....are you all swiming now?? We started our pool group this morning. I have a tad bit of a burn but it will turn to "tan" FAT soon. HA!

Tan fat is always better than WHITE fat I say.
