Our Help

"Tensions will be high and broken by the rain of mercy..God's gracies." - See you in a Hundred Years

About two months ago I really lost it. Not just a little but almost every day for about two weeks. Vivi was cutting 4 teeth at once, refusing to nap, and I was exhausted from pregnancy. God and I had a tussle. I stomped my feet, yelled, and cried.  In my tantrums I had asked God for help. It felt like I was drowning. We had moved to a new city, Will had started a new job, and I didn't know very many people. To say the least I was lonely.  I needed help. In the coming weeks we had people contacting us to let us know they would be vacationing in New Orleans, attending a conference, or they just wanted to see us. I was amazed at how quickly God so graciously sent all these wonderful people.  Each and every one of them played with Vivi, engaged me in grown up conversation, and/or laughed with me. 

God in Her goodness gave me mercy. ..drops of mercy.
