Mason's birthday is tomorrow. He will be 19 years old. Wow. Hard to believe. Doesn't seem that long ago that he was just a sweet little curly-haired 5 year old. I miss that little boy sometimes, but am glad for the young man he is now too.

We went to the bowling alley this afternoon to celebrate his birthday. It was fun. Bo was the winner! Yea Bo!

Happy Birthday Mason!

God is so Good

I have heard this several times this week from several different people in several different situations. And I agree, God is certainly good.

Every time I have heard it, it is because something good is happening to that person. I just want to ask... Is God still good when something "bad" happens? It seems most people attribute the good that's happening to them to God, and the bad that happens to them to Satan. And of course 'good' is always relative. It is what WE perceive as good.

I believe the bible says that God is directing and has predestined EVERYTHING that happens. the good and the so-called bad. (How do we really know what is good or bad for us anyway?)

According to Romans 8:28, all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose, ALL THINGS!

If you are one of the called, one of the ones that love God (only because he causes you to love him), then every single thing that happens to you is good for you.

What a good and comforting thought!

Rambling

I have had a busy week and am glad it's Friday! My friend at work, Toni was in Las Vegas all week for a conference. She is the manager and handles all the customers, phone calls, and such, while I just sit in the back and do bookkeeping (which is how I like it). I have had to do her job and mine this week. I usually only work 5-6 hrs a day, but have worked 8 everyday this week. Toni came back to work today, and I am so glad! And I appreciate her a little bit more than I did last week.

I am usually off on Fridays, but went in this morning for a little while, then came home and worked on books for another guy all afternoon. --I am ready for the weekend!

Yesterday I went to the hospital to visit Bo's great nephew, Justin. He had a shunt replaced in his head and was in Pediatric ICU there for a couple of days. He is doing good and went home today.

You know, my boy Adam was in the same hospital in Pediatric ICU off and on for 5 months when he was here on earth 17 years ago. I saw a nurse there who worked there 17 years ago. She remembered Adam. She said she still had a magnet on her refrigerator that Adam made for her. I was just so touched when I heard that and just talking to her really took me back to that time in my life. The time when Adam was still here on earth, and Cody was just a child, still at home. My goodness, what a wonderful time in my life. I wish I had appreciated it more when I had it. It was such a wonderful, special time, and I didn't even know it......
