More Than...

Ephesians 3:20
Now glory be to God!
By His might power at work within us,
He is able to accomplish infinitely MORE THAN
we would ever dare to ask or hope.

Yesterday afternoon, Marky and I were floating in the ocean and I was overcome with the emotion of gratitude.  Gratitude to the Lord for His blessings and His provision and His love for me.  Ten years ago, I would have never even thought about going on a vacation.  Much less an enjoyable one. Eight years ago, drowning in fear and sadness, there was never a thought of a vacation.  I was raising my two daughters alone and taking life one day at a time.  It was a good life, getting better day by day, but it wasn't a "going on vacation" life.  Then, the Lord brought Patrick into our lives, and brought us into his.  Patrick was God's MORE THAN for me, for Marky and Maddie.  And shortly there after, God brought another two MORE THANS in the people of Meredith and Michael.  He made the 6 of us a family.  A very happy family who is on a vacation together, experiencing MORE THAN 
I would have ever thought was possible in the form of a relaxing, fun, adventurous, luxurious, happy time away from home. 
We are making memories, we are having fun, we are enjoying life together.  
It's MORE THAN I could have ever dared to ask or hope for.  

Praise you, Father,
I give YOU glory for all of this.

    P.S. My word verification is "blessed", how ironic is that?
