"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too? I thought I was the only one."
— C.S. Lewis

to say she loves her college is the understatement of the year

and to say we are absolutely, positively thrilled for her is the second understatement

and we're ALL so thrilled with God we could bust right open trying to contain our thanksgiving

He just keeps heaping on the blessings...

to our sweet girl who has been trusting Him when it was hard to see the path He was creating just for her...

but now she's around the bend with jaw dropped wide open

and arms lifted high

i will sing of the steadfast LOVE of the Lord forever
-psalm 89:1

So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose? If God didn't hesitate to put everything on the line for us, embracing our condition and exposing himself to the worst by sending his own Son, is there anything else he wouldn't gladly and freely do for us? And who would dare tangle with God by messing with one of God's chosen? Who would dare even to point a finger? The One who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of God at this very moment sticking up for us. Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and Christ's love for us? There is no way!...

None of this fazes us because Jesus loves us. I'm absolutely convinced that nothing—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and God's love because of the way that Jesus our Master has embraced us.
Romans 8:31

God so rocks

Hi Cathy! So glad to hear your daughter is loving college. That's awesome!!
Just saw your recent comment on my blog. I've been so M-I-A from the blog world. I'm in the midst of my student teaching and it just wipes me out and leaves me totally drained at the end of the day, which leaves no room for blogging. :(
Today was the first time in a VERY long time I've even looked at my blog. I'm happy to say, however, that your comment made me smile.
Thank you!
