and said, "I sure hope you tell me these are all yours!" When I told him that I had two more at home and one coming home soon, he really started smiling! Our restaurant experience went incredibly smoothly, especially considering that I was significantly outnumbered with 5 kids between the ages of 3 and 8! The only mishap was my fault and involved a glass lantern that accidentally got bumped! I'm fairly confident that the morning would have been much more lively had I not utilized this divide and conquer approach! Everybody had a good morning! Haddon and Evie got loved on by their Mimi, and I was able to focus my attention on my birthday girl and my boys. It was a win, win combination for everybody involved, except maybe for our kind waitress who had to wipe down a sticky, syrupy table and sweep up chards of glass and pancakes scattered across the floor!
It's about Him, and what He's done for us!
It's about celebrating how He has made us more than conquerors, even in the midst of this season that is all about dividing and conquering.
For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:35, 37-39
Not goodbyes. Not oceans. Not even when you feel as if your heart is splitting open.
Nothing can seperate us from Him, and nothing can change our standing in Him.
We are more than conquerors.
