"This is the father of your children!"

When I was a little girl, God whispered in my ear that when the man that He had chosen for me came along, He (God) would whisper in my ear, "This is the father of your children!"

For many years I kept my ear attuned to hear that quiet voice. In my impatience to hear His voice I married another man who was an alcoholic and abused me...we got pregnant four times together, but not one child survived. I was even told by specialists I would never have children. I was devastated.

Then one day in Paradise, while stationed with the Navy in Hawaii and while my divorce was waiting to be finalized...a gorgeous man walked on to the elevator where I lived carrying a laundry basket...and I heard..."This is the father of your children." I am not sure if I said it out loud, but I certainly thought loudly..."WHAT...this guy?! He's hot!" I dropped my eyes and thought: "Are you sure?"

"This is the father of your children," God whispered again.

I was caught off guard and walked all the way out to my car and then decided I needed to go back in the building and check the father of my children out again. He was no where to be I rushed back up to my room and told my roommate all about it. She knew exactly who I was talking about...she helped me cleverly meet this man.

Five children later and soon to be 26 years of marriage on August 8th, the man in the elevator and I have had our ups and downs...but God ALWAYS brings us back together. I love you to pieces Dave!

Don't ever question God when He has a plan for you OR a person picked out. He will let the man HE has picked cut in, as long as that man is HIS pick.

...and the children will lead them: Malala Yousafzai speech in full

Today of ALL days I choose to watch and listen to THIS young woman who is a HERO to all children and represents what is good and honorable in this world today. 

I will not fill up my Facebook feed with hate and negativity after the results of one trial....My heart breaks for the loss of one young man over a year ago in a senseless altercation and that some believe justice was not done. But justice is not done in many ways AROUND the world for our children, no matter what their color, race or religion.

I WILL give my prayers to Treyvon's parents and family, as losing a child is the worst thing any parent could endure. I pray for Mr. Zimmerman and his family as their lives will never be same.

I pray and support THIS young woman in her mission to help children, especially girls around the world become what God intended them to be!

Happy 16th Birthday Malala Yousafzai...may God grant you many days with us and bless your life fully throughout! 

Thank you for your bravery!

Isaiah 11:6, NIV: 

6 The wolf will live with the lamb, 
the leopard will lie down with the goat, 
the calf and the lion and the yearling [a] together; 
and a little child will lead them.

PLEASE Watch the whole will be awestruck by this young woman!
