A wink from our maker:)

When I taught at the church we taught the kids that hope means that "God keeps His promises". And we used the image of the rainbow to show this metaphor. Now since John Hunter was little and we see a rainbow I say in my Childrens Minister voice... when we see a rainbow it means that God keeps His promises!

Yesterday I was so convicted by the fact I have repeated this 1 million times, but have no believed it in my heart! It is no secret that this week has been one of the hardest ever. I told a good friend that Indy is my Wilderness and I am confident the Promise Land is coming!

On Thursday I took John Hunter to the library and it was super fun! We checked out 2 books (which I don't think I have done since high school). While there we were at a little play section. There were a couple of moms with kids and we struck up a conversation. Mainly revolving around the fact that I needed a Gymboree. They were sweet but it was getting close to nap time so we packed up and left. On our way out a one of the ladies stopped me and said if I needed anything else to give her a call. We exchanged numbers and went on our way. I was gald for the encounter, but didn't really see myself calling for any reason.

On Friday John Hunter and I had a plan. Early in the week I called the church we like and asked if they had a MOPS program. They in fact did and were meeting on Friday. So we went. We were all geared up and walked into the Childrens Ministry... which were full of Rainbows, and while walking there was the girl from the Library... and in good ole fashion Kendra style i yelled... I KNOW YOU! We both just laughed and she helped me find John Hunter's room. We went on to the area MOPS meets and not only is she apart of MOPS she was at the table I was assigned to! If that is not God I dont know what it!

He always keeps His promises...
he did for Moses in the wilderness
and he is doing it for me here!!
God is GOOD!

PS-- Kelly is her name and she lives 4 min. away from us. She is super sweet and has one little girl!!! I enjoyed my MOPS experience and think it will be a good way for me to get involved... however it made me miss myMUMS girls... can't wait to see them next week~ oh and their food was no where as good as ours:)
