a whole bunch of extra time.

you know those days where everything goes smoothly,
your children are
and obedient
all day long,
you have endless amounts of energy
and you never need to tap into your extra pocket of patience?

well, that was not today.

today, i was informed that L has been denied
for one of the therapies that he is currently receiving.
one of the therapies that is so necessary to his progression.
i am able to appeal the decision (Praise God)
but, it entails preparing for and getting a hearing date set.

perfect. just perfect.
it’s funny
(not really)
because i was just
thinking that i had a whole bunch of
extra time on my hands
and was wondering
what on earth i was going to fill it with.
now i know.

there’s nothing i wouldn’t do for this little man.

but then, i was able to have a quick visit with Katherine Wolf and her husband
(who both have endured so, so, so very much.)
and how could i not leave feeling encouraged?
it wouldn’t be possible.
just being in the presence of my dear friend brings hope.
hope in the Lord.
and, a visit
provides sprinkles cupcakes.

Be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer.
Romans 12:12

and this one has been ringing in my ears:

Therefore, since we are surrounded
by such a great cloud of witnesses,
let us throw off everything that hinders
and the sin that so easily entangles,
and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
Hebrews 12:1

the race marked out for us.
not the race marked out for others.
the race marked out for us.

226. a sprinkles cupcake
227. a mellow night ahead
228. none of your children need to visit the public restroom at the mall
229. getting everything on your list from target
230. promised dessert from yogurtland

update at 8:47pm:
God is so faithful.
as B is out getting us some yogurtland,
i had my quiet time and prayed for my children
(and my husband)
and do you know what was on the calendar to pray for my children today?
and do you know what verse was listed?
that’s right,
Hebrews 12:1.
He is so faithful indeed.
