She's back!

It's only for 2 nights, but little Caroline is back! She has two teeth now and she can hold her own bottle. She's a little bigger now and she sits up and can even crawl a little. She is the center of attention, the belle of the ball. Oh my, I love her so.
Her parents aren't bad, either. Not bad at all.

So they haven't decided where to live. Dallas or Houston. If you know me you know that Dallas is the hub of my universe, so I'm not even believing that they are struggling to know God's will. I KNOW GOD'S WILL. . . if they would just ask me. Well, they don't even have to ask me-- the 'Big D' written on my forehead is their sign.

Seriously, it is a big decision, and I shouldn't be irreverent and sarcastic when it comes to knowing what God wants for them to do. I AM reminded of a saying I heard years ago: Love God and do as you please. The first part of that must- MUST- precede the second part, then what you do will please God. 'Course the problem is knowing what pleases you... when both choices are great. Hmm. Then there's the 'ought to' business. What 'ought I to do'? Well, I guess then you should go back to 'Love God and do as you please."
OR there's the Hudson Taylor process. He was deciding whether to go to China as a missionary or not. I forget what the other option was. Anyway, he decided to claim the verse, 2 Tim. 1:7, about God giving us a sound mind. (That's from the King James Version.) He wrote down all the pros and cons for going to China, and decided to go there.

Well, I'm just rambling. But my heart goes out to John and Elizabeth. And so do my prayers. I can't believe how much I love them. And if they decide on Houston, I will be okay. I think. (It's all about me.)

And Susan H., if you're reading this I DID get your comment (I finally read it!) on my post about the Clintons. Thank you!!!!!

My hometown...

I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
