Some Concerns

I have a few concerns I would like to share with you for prayer.
First, we (husband and I ) have lost 2 very important certificates he had. We can call and get a replacement for the most important, but it's very frustrating trying to find something that's just gone I guess.
Second, our girls are getting ready to have their summer visit with their birth mom. They always look forward to visits when they get them (about 20 some days a year is all they see her) and summer is 2 weeks. We are not as worried as when they were younger, but still they will be flying with her to New York and doing all kinds of exciting things away from us. They go this Friday to stay in a hotel with her and fly out on Saturday a.m.
Third, our boy isn't going to visit his birth mom, he has decided he would rather go camping with his girlfriend and her mother and step dad (his mom said that was fine he needed to find himself-whatever). If we let him go, hubby still has to call the mom to see.
I seem to have some major prayer requests right now, but really no more than most people have everyday. I know God loves my children and will care for them better than I can...no matter where they are, and I know God knows where those certificates are, and we will either find them or not. I am thankful that my family is healthy...some people are asking prayer for health, I am thankful I have a family...some women are waking up to find their husband gone or leaving. I am thankful that my kids have some relationship with their mom in NY, some children have no parents whatsoever, or have dueling parents. I am thankful that I have a beautiful home (a little messy at times, but that's my doing), and I'm thankful we only have one parrot. So much to be thankful for...I hope that this week all of us will take the chance to really look around at our lives and see all that God has done or provided for us, and by all of us I do mean me too...especially me.
Thank you for stopping by, and for those who care to know... I've lost a few pounds, but time is the test. Bye.

Congrats on losing a few pounds that is great!

Praying that you find the missing items you need and that God gives you clarity on where they are...

Praying also for your children...seems life is a process of letting go for parents. You are wise to trust them to God...

Hey, great about the few pounds! First of all I can't imagine P. misplacing anything. Perhaps someone placed something else on top of his papers. I asked prayer tonight at church about the trip but not about the papers :( Did he look in the shed?

I hope you have found your papers by now. That is very frustrating when you lose something really important.
