Nothing’s worse than waking up at 1:30am having to go to the bathroom, right? Well, this morning I got a pleasant surprise!
I had a text message from a friend that prompted me to look at Facebook, and lo and behold! There was a message from our son Tuck!
Yesterday, I woke up missing him something terrible. Even though I’m at peace about him, that doesn’t stop a mother’s pain of missing her baby. I sent him a message, which I hadn’t done in a while, and told him how I was feeling. I didn’t really expect a response. I was only hoping to see the check mark, and the word ‘seen’ beside it. Much to my surprise he replied. This is what he said.
“I love you and im ok i promise i miss yall i just keep my head up an go day by day an keep praying no matter what god has a plan for me the preacher told me this the other day so. I love you so much”
I told him that I was pretty dang positive that the plan God had for him included his parents! No response yet.
I believe he misses his family. I believe God is speaking to him. I believe God keeps His promises. I believe that when Tuck is truly listening, he’ll own up to the mistakes he’s made and face them like a man. No one can run forever. Not from warrants, and certainly not from their Maker!
This morning I’m one thankful, trusting momma! Thankful to hear from our boy. Thankful that God never leaves us wandering in the darkness forever. Thankful that God doesn’t waste anything. And trusting our Savior to work in Tuck’s life just like He did in mine! My Redeemer lives!
