I was blessed with boys, love em.  One is 25 and one is 11.  I am forever calling them by each other’s names.  Swore I would never do it, but it happens – fact of life.

DS, the older, and I have had a bit of a falling out since Christmas time – at least that is when it came to a head.  It has been difficult and my heart has been heavy but I have tried very hard to drop him and everything about him into God’s hands.  I was surprised on Friday evening by a text message from him that he was on his way to the All Star Game in Dallas.  He has been a huge basketball fan since he was in second grade and my dad took him to a Big 12 Conference game.  Needless to say, I was thrilled for him, but full of questions because he isn’t a college educated big wig with a great job.  He is, however, very friendly and has many people in his world who like to help him out periodically.  A friend’s girlfriend lives in Dallas and apparently through her employer she was able to get him a ticket to the game tonight.  On Saturday, he texted me a number of messages and I to him.  The most we have “talked” since Christmas really.  It was great, I felt like I was allowed in his world again for a time and I am extremely grateful.  God is good.  If anyone reads this particular entry, would you said a pray for my DS, the older, that he open himself up to a relationship with the Lord and that God place in his path, Godly people to show him the way? 

Gratefully yours,

Julie

Last Sunday, after I had finally posted an entry on my word JOY, two of the three readings at Mass used either JOY or a derivative of JOY.  God is good.

Nehamiah 8:10   He said further: “Go, eat rich foods and drink sweet drinks, and allot portions to those who had nothing prepared; for today is holy to our LORD. Do not be saddened this day, for rejoicing in the LORD must be your strength!”

1 Corinthians 12: 26  If (one) part suffers, all the parts suffer with it; if one part is honored, all the parts share its joy.
