My Plans are NOT His

Hello hello everyone. It's been a minute since my last blog or whatever we call these now days.

As many of you know, Terry and I have temporary custody of my 9-year-old cousin. Never in my wildest dreams was that ever in my plan. Trust me, I have prayed and prayed about it. It was hard enough raising my own kids with all the pressures of this world and thankfully they all turned out to be good humans. As my friend Tracy would say, they are good eggs. i

I don't know what the plan is for the long term but God does. I have to remind myself daily that this is all in HIS plan and HIS plans are far better than mine.

I say all this as a reminder to all of you. No matter what we are going through, no matter what season of life we are in, things can change and it will all be worth it. Do it with a smile even if you have to lock yourself in a bathroom and cry now and then. Do it prayerfully. God has a plan for all of us even when we don't know what it is. Can you imagine if we did? We would probably try to hide under a rock or wonder how on earth will that happen. Remember God is already there and He knows how we will get there.... with HIM by our side.

Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you", declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

That's what I hope I can do for this sweet boy God has brought into my life.

I have had guardianship of my 15 month old grandson since he was less than a month old. I never in my wildest dreams thought this is where I would be at 58. I am so sad he can't be with his parents but he is such a blessing to me and his pawpaw. Wonder how I will get through some days but he is the light of my life. Will be praying for you and appreciate your prayers too.


I was 53 when I got custody of my great nephew. He was 3. God had a wonderful plan. I did not plan this at all But God did! He will be 15 Aug. 1st.


LJ is blessed to have you and Terry in his life to care for him. God chose the right people who will trust His will. Thank you for sharing your heart with us. God indeed is in control and knows what it best for us and our loved ones. :)


Well said, my sweet friend. Your cousin is so lucky to have you and Terry to care for him. What a selfless thing to do. Love and prayers. Shonna


Sheila, you’re such a good person and as long as you trust in the Lord everything will turn out for the best. Your cousin is truly lucky to have you and Terry in his life. Trust and have faith sweet lady.
