I have been having a heavy heart lately due to the house situation and starting back to work this week. Ryan did something interesting the other day though. He was standing at the top of the steps and when Tim was about 4 steps below him, Ryan just fell forward down the stairs right into daddy's arms. It scared me to death. I actually think this took Tim off guard too. I started to think about this and related it to my life. I think this is exactly what God was talking about when we are called to have a childlike faith. We are called to leap into His arms and have faith he will catch us. It seems scary but when has God ever failed to catch me? When Ryan landed in Tim's arms he had the biggest grin. So, I have decided to jump! I will take new leaps and have faith I will land among the arms of my Father.

I was watching football this week. The kicker for Tampa Bay, Matt Bryan, suffered a huge loss and buried his 3 month old baby last week after he died from SIDS. Noah is 4 months. I was watching Oprah today and she had on a mother who accidentally left her 2 year old daughter in the car for 8 hours and her daughter died. Ryan is 2. When I hear these stories my heart breaks. I put myself in their shoes and I just want to cry. I don't know what I would do if anything happened to my babies. I am so blessed that I share my life with these boys. All of a sudden I realized how much a blessing my life is. How sometimes our focus gets fuzzy.

All this to say, I will not let anything or anyone steal my joy! God had blessed me with so much. I'm sure there are many people wishing they had my "problems". So, for me I will take the leap of faith and grin as I land in His arms. God is good!

You have to have faith, things usually work out.
