God is AWESOME!!

What a week. OH...it's only Tuesday. Well, what a rough couple of days:)! MOnday was a bad day. The kind nightmares are made of. One of our baby goats died. Yes, died. The one morning Brad does't check on the little buggers & I walk out to discover a VERY sick Buzz Lightyear. He couldn't stand or move...he was barely breathing. It was AWFUL...way more than an 8 month pregnant woman can take. I didn't even WANT the goats but I sure didn't want the thing to die!! I frantically call Brad (who for the first time ACTUALLY answered when he was needed) who came home to acess the situation. His opinion was that it was not good....well, thank you Captain Obvious. The neighbor lady came by & was like...he's not going to make it. GREAT!! I am SUPPOSED to be getting ready to go to the doctor & I am trying to figure out what to do with a dead goat & how to explain to my three year old that his new pet is no longer here. SHEESH! Brad ends up taking care of the situation & Bish & I get ready to go to town. I was worried that God would be upset with us for not trying to get him some help (even though I don't think he could have been helped) but try rationalizing with someone who is 8 months pregnant...ain't happening. I prayed for Buzz & tried to go on but the tears kept coming. Finally, Bish & I were ready so we walked outside to the car. I decided to toss something in the trash on the way & noticed something. Something BEAUTIFUL! There, on our porch, was a huge, gorgeous Monarch butterfly...just sitting there. And not just sitting...I noticed that it was HANGING from it's now empty cacoon....it had just "hatched." I knew that God was telling me to chill out & that he was handling everything & that everything was okay....which I desperatly needed to know. You see...my mom has a thing with butterflies....she says God sends them as a reminder that He is with us & that things will be okay. And there, at a time when I needed it most....God reminded me of His daily miracles & that He was with us....all of us...even Buzz Lightyear. So...God is awesome. He knew two weeks ago when he placed that cacoon on my porch that in two weeks I would desperatly need a sign & that it would be delivered at PRECISELY the right moment....God's amazing love for his children is just so...awesome! To make things even more wonderful...there are NINE more cacoons hanging on my porch...LOVE IT!! Thank you God for your precious miracles & for loving me even at my worst...
Happy Tuesday Friends!!!

So sorry about the goat...how sad! Aren't husbands wonderful for taking care of stuff like that for us? =) Tell Brad I'm proud of him! And it is a beautiful thing that God knows exactly what we need when we need it!
