As I sit on my desk after our awesome morning walk I feel so grateful for all that God has given to my family and I. My door is open and I can hear the birds, the air is still crisp, the pool water sprouts are on and the sound of the water hitting the pool soothes me.
You see this picture of the old home with a broken bike and chickens running around is my Guapo (my dad’s) home. As I child I heard stories of this home. When I was in the 7th grade it was my first time seeing the canal that ran behind the house that was their home. We took pictures that day of our visit. Many year’s later my father had a friend who is an amazing artist make an oil painting of this place he came from.
This photo grounds me, humbles me, encourages me and makes me walk in gratefulness. My mother came from a very hard place of much struggle as well. You see I know that the relationship with Christ, the hard work, dedication and love that my father and mother had for each other and for us created a breakthrough for generations to come. I cherish the stories, the lessons and photos of my youth.
I got this journal as a gift and was waiting to use it until I finished my other one. As I placed it on my desk this morning my eyes filled with tears for the verse that is engraved sits near me and this painting. God has called them, our family, and our children for generations to come! When God has a plan, a purpose for you nothing will break it! Yes, we have many things in this life to conquer because that is the plan to mold us, break us, shape us so we can be used to reach and touch each other! God has such an Amazing Plan for all us!
I have seen God work in their lives, our family and this home. And at the hardest times God speaking to them, the Holy Spirit guiding them, Angels and people touching them in hard and good times has only caused my faith to be stronger and has made Him so real and my foundation!
For He shall give His Angeles charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. Psalms 91:11
