I will keep my eyes on YOU

Unfortunately, we lost our summary judgement today.

So where do we go from here?.....I wish the answer was more concrete, but it's not. I wish that I had $46,000 laying around to make this all go away tomorrow, but that's obviously not an option.

I'm not going to lie, today really sucked!!! Probably the hardest day yet. But tomorrow is a new day, and I'm excited about our small family road trip we're taking to Houston tomorrow for some family time.

I still strongly believe that this is in His hands. It's hard when you're in the middle of it and you can't see the ending, how loss is a part of the plan, but I know that His plan is perfect and the path He's taking us on is being laid out in the right direction.

"But if we are to share His glory, we must also share His suffering. Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory He will reveal to us later." Romans 8:17-18

I will continue to keep my eyes and my heart on Him. He is the only thing that can't be shaken in all of this and He has NOT forsaken us. It's all a part of His bigger plan.

If anything, my passion for justice has grown through this. That's something from the beginning of this lawsuit that I've desired for myself, so I can't imagine the weight of people's hearts in other places of the world that horrific injustice is happening. It makes me want to fight harder for those, especially children, that don't have a voice and never had one to begin with. I know that I have way more power than they ever will. I just can't get to my son fast enough!!!

Please pray for my previous employer. Pray that her heart will be softened and that we can both find peace and closure with this in a just way. Please pray that it will end sooner rather than later so we can move on and forward. Most importantly, pray that His glory will shine through in this matter.

    I love you so much, Kristin. I am very proud of you for how you are walking through this. I will continue to pray for you, Jordan, Felicia, and for justice. Psalm 37 is a great passage for encouragement during times of injustice. Read the entire chapter, but here is a sweet verse from Him:
    "Commit your way to the LORD;
    trust in Him and He will do this:
    He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn,
    the justice of your cause like the noonday sun."
    Psalm 37:5-6
    I love you - Aunt Nancy

  2. Today, I opened my Bible to read, and I opened it to Psalms 27. I couldn't believe the words of encouragement I felt for you. Vs. 14 says, Wait for the Lord, Be strong and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for the Lord. I love you baby!--mom
