I wanted to share with you an email response from one of my very best friends in the whole world. While she's not the "wise woman" referred to in yesterday's post, she is quite wise herself. She loves the Lord with all her heart and it is very obvious to anyone who spends more than five minutes with her!
Here's what she had to say:
That blessed my socks off this morning! Oh, wait…I don’t have any socks on yet. J I agree. People often taken I Corinthians 10:13 out of context, which says, “No TEMPTATION has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful. He will not let you be TEMPTED beyond what you can bear. But when you are TEMPTED, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. He will never give us temptations that we cannot overcome with His power. But He will and often does give us SITUATIONS OR CIRCUMSTANCES that we can’t handle. And it’s only in those times that we truly understand our desperate need for Him. Only He can turn the most difficult of circumstances for us into things we praise Him for later on, when we have the bigger picture. I guess it’s all a part of the refining process that is making us ready for our eternal home. Have a wonderful day, my friend.
Now you understand why I passed it along to you. It's a good word for all of us.
On to another subject....
There's an interesting conversation going back and forth between two bloggers and their readers. Ellen from Love That Max, mom of a precious boy with cerebral palsy as well as a typically developing daughter, and Jill from Scary Mommy, mom of three typical children, are collaborating on a "project".
Here's how it works -
Scary Mommy readers (who tend to have typically developing kiddos) are posing questions regarding special needs which are then being answered by Love That Max readers (who tend to have special needs kiddos).
No question is off limits. The goal is for all parties involved to learn a little something from each other.

Have a great Wednesday!
