Even Now...He is in Control.
Life has turned upside down this week. Jonathan had chemo over the weekend. Overall, he did well with it. Now we just wait and let it do its job.

On Saturday I went to the YMCA with the kids.While in the pool, I realized that the diamond from my wedding ring was gone. I have no idea if it fell out in the pool or some other random place.

That evening I returned from running some errands and forgot to lock the car. Sometime in the evening, my purse was stolen from my car.
We went to the 8am service at church on Sunday morning and discovered the purse was gone when we went through the drive through at McDonalds. By the time we got home at 9:30 the thieves had already spent over $500.

What an experience this has been for the kids. They have been upset but it has been a neat opportunity to teach them that God is in Control even when it feels like he isn't it. I have loved showing them that no one can really steal my identity. They can take everything else but not who I really am, and definately not who I am in Christ.

The sweetest thing is this morning Josh said "Mom, you should bible study today. I tried to bible study and pray to Jesus about the robbers. " If this brings my children closer to Christ and closer to each other then it will be worth it.

Thank you all for your continued prayers...it has been a rough week. But we are pressing on.

On Wednesday night my brother had his wallet stolen while playing dodgeball. The thieves spent $300 before the card could be canceled. That SAME NIGHT someone broke into my Dad's truck and stole some of his power tools. We don't know if they are related. We know God will use it for good. I am praying that they catch those stinkin' thieves and bring them to justice.

We've been through this too in a round-about way. Hope that things are taken care of. Praying for your family and Jonathan as he goes through this chemo again. Hugs.
