What if......?

Thursday is a very important day for my family. My husband and my 9 year old daughter are traveling to Nicaragua for 12 days. If you're a mom, then I know you can relate to what I'm about to share. As moms, aren't we always thinking of the worst case scenario? When your kids don't make it home right after school, don't you see them in your mind hopping in a car with some strange man who offered them candy? Only to rush out the door, keys in hand, and see them walking down the sidewalk. Whew.... just lollygagging along, no emergency.

And what about when you expect your husband home at a certain time. Ten minutes pass, twenty minutes pass, thirty....and this is when I start visualizing him on the side of the road, van tipped upside down, trapped or already dying, not being able to reach his cell phone to call for help. Boy do I have to resist the urge to call 911!!! Then, he finally answers his cell phone, only to ask why in the world I called so many times. He was just caught in a conversation with someone and thinks it's rude to answer your cell phone during said conversation. And boy, can pastors get caught in conversation!

So, is it just me or do all moms do this? I'm not generally a worrisome person, which is why I assume it's all moms. Post to this blog regarding a similar situation and you'll be added to my drawing for the month.

Anyway, back to the original story about Nicaragua. I just have to trust that God is in control and that He will work all things for His glory.... whether or not my family returns. Right now, I'm fully trusting that the Lord knows how much I need my husband and that He also doesn't want me to go through the heartbreak of losing a child and/or my husband. So I am fully intending to pick them up from the airport on the 22nd! I WILL see them return. I know this because I know how much my Savior loves me (even thought I also know how undeserving I am).
