Leaving my babies....


It's NEVER ease leave new babies or children....and this time is NO exception. When we brought Jett home (because we had NO clue when that would be until a few weeks ahead of time), JT had to be gone on several mission trips fairly quickly. He was gone almost 6 weeks the first few months of us all being together. That made the transition for all of us very difficult.

But, this time, by God's grace, we have been able to schedule only 2 mission trips during these first few months. JT will be leading one in April to New Mexico, and I leave tomorrow to lead a group of women in Guatemala. My heart is heavy....I will miss being here...I will miss my husband...I will miss my children.

I am looking forward to spending time with these women and our friends in Guatemala. I know that God has a plan for us there, and He is Sovereign above all. His ways are good, and His thoughts are holy. I cling to that as my Mommy heart is torn. I have never had to be away from all my kids, and I am anxious. I am resting in God's goodness right now.

I am thankful that JT and his mom will be holding down the fort and sad that I will be missing the sweet smiles, kisses and hugs from here. I sure hope Skype helps......
