Are you going to wait for God to MAKE THINGS RIGHT? Or you going to try to take the reins and do it yourself? Is He not working fast enough for you? Do you really think you can do a better job?
I know that there have been times in my life that I thought the Lord had forgotten me. But just when I thought that all hope was gone, WHAM!! All things came right.

The situation of which I am talking about on this occasion was the situation with my daughters. It has been a lonnnnng lonnnnnng journey and one that I was not sure would ever be concluded. I was afraid that I would never be able to be understood. I reconnected with my daughters after 15 years at my youngest daughter’s graduation. That was quite a few years ago. Don’t get me wrong, we have had some wonderful times together that I would not trade for the world. But the bad times from long ago were still there in the background. We talked all the way around them but my faith was a little weak in that area. Fear was still an issue.

Fast forward 15-16 years and I am at my daughter’s new house she just bought. We are having a quiet night, just her and I. Well as quiet as possible with 2 mini-dachshunds and a brand new golden retriever puppy. LOL. My daughter was going through some personal papers from her fiance’s father, whom had passed away a month earlier. She made the comment that she did not understand why anyone would keep ALL of those receipts. Some from back 20 some odd years ago. Then she came across a letter that he had written.

Due to the personal nature of the letter I am not going into the details. But suffice it to say, it could have been written by ME. Change a few (very few) details and of course names and gender and you would have thought that it was ME writing it. It could have started the day I lost my girls in court and went from there to almost the present time. NO ONE CAN FAKE THAT KIND OF PAIN. More details taken out at this point, but at one point I stood up and went over to my daughter and took her hand, (she was sitting in the floor) raised her up and put my arms around her. She grabbed me and held on for dear life. We sobbed, not just cried, but sobbed for quite some time. I apologized to her for not being able to protect her from all the bad things that had happened. She apologized to me…..FOR WHAT? I asked. Then I told her not to ever feel like she had to apologize to me for anything. She had done absolutely nothing to apologize for. Nothing in that divorce had been her fault. It so so sad that children feel that it is their fault. It is not. Not ever.
All those receipts were every dime that he had ever spent on his children. They were proof that he had not lied and that every thing that he had said was true. It was a revelation to say the least. I hope that he receives validation for the pain that he was put through. I know with his help, I did. I know that with God’s help he will. Thank you Father.

The reason that I KNOW that God was the one that made this happen: I was supposed to return Monday morning back to my home. I kept hearing this little voice in my mind saying, “Don’t go. Not yet”. So I thought to myself, hmmmm, that is ok with me. Lol. This event happened Monday night. If I had left that morning, this monumental event would never occurred.

My daughter and I are now closer than ever and now we don’t feel like that black cloud is hanging over us in the distance. And we thank you Lord for always MAKING THINGS RIGHT. Even when it is in your time and not ours. I bow down before your majestic grace and give thanks.

Psalm 30:10-12
10 Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me;
O LORD, be my help.”
11 You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
12 that my heart may sing to you and not be silent.
O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
