A Good Day


Yesterday was a good day

Bittersweet

It was  Brett's 23rd birthday

No cake, no party, no family dinner

visiting hour

that's the bitter part

but the sweet

visiting hour

A smile 

Hey momma, how was your day?

Watching him talk with his father, witnessing healing

Hearing about Pastor Jeff's visit earlier that day 

 remembering prayers for "strong godly men to come into his life"

A letter from an inmate needing someone to love him, abandoned by his family

Writing one back encouraging him to seek after God

Yesterday was a good day.

Tina,

I so appreciate what you shared about your son, Brett. I will be praying for all of you. You did not mention a husband/father in your post? Is he involved? If so, how is he holding up?
Isn't this Bible Study so incredible? I am so Loving it! It's so right on time for me! God Bless you Dear Tina. You just keep doing what you are doing. Our God is so faithful!
blessings,
Jeanie
