Our little family decided to take a little staycation today. We woke up early this morning and drove two hours to Palestine to ride the Texas State Railroad. My little boy loves trains and our kids love to do everything together as a family so my daughter really wanted to go too.
We had such an amazing time and were able to disconnect from our busy world here at home for a day. We focused on the moments today with no distractions. Just us four and a train ride.
I love how God uses unexpected divine moments for his glory and reminders of how strong his love is for us. When we drove up to the train station. I immediately saw something that struck my heart and made me smile so big. Something that may or may not mean something to someone else but it meant so much to me. Three numbers. 316. You see the day my first daughter went to be with the Lord and her birthday is March 16th. If I see these three numbers together in order I know she is with me. I am immediately overflowing with comfort, healing, and yes faith in our God. The one who chose my paths. That is exactly what he did today.
We had so much fun today. I soaked in every smile, every tired yawn, and every hug that my children gave me. My faith was strengthened and all I could do was smile and thank God for all that he has done today.
