The God Who knows everything!
On Sunday night as my head hit the pillow I thanked God for allowing me to be born into the family He gave me. I thanked Him that He is the "I AM", the God Who knows and controls everything. He knew Frances DeLoach would be my mother and that Fotch Staten would be my father. He knew I would be a preemie back in the day when preemie's didn't make it. He knew who my brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and cousins would be. He knew I would fail miserable through the years and that eventually I would cry out to Him when I had no where else to go.
Sunday was special. My baby brother (and only living brother) and his wife, Tracy invited us to their home for a housewarming. It was wonderful to spend time with my siblings. One of my biggest faults is that I take life too serious, but on Sunday...I laughed like I haven't laughed in a long time. How can you not laugh when you get Billy, Janice, Patti, Debi, and Frances together (they could launch their own comedy show). Anyway, once again I thank God that He knows everything and that He knew who my siblings would be. I love them immensely and wouldn't trade them for the world!
