He lets me know He hears

Yesterday afternoon, I walked off an airplane and heard a whistle. There waiting behind a chain link fence in the airport parking lot were Daniel and the 11 children all of whom I missed sooo much! I went through customs, and an airport attendent who knew me grabbed my bags for me and said, "Let's go...you've got a few people waiting for you! :)" And a moment later, all the hugs, kisses and tears of joy! It's soooo good to be home!
I have much to share but think I have about a week of house cleaning to do (not complaining...they did great on school and the meals :)...besides, if everything went perfectly, I wouldn't feel needed! :) ). I do have to write this one BIG praise as I don't want to forget!
How many of you were praying for our trip home? The Lord answered! In fact, it was almost too good to be true!
First, the Lord provided almost exactly the money I needed to pick up a few needs for the children and check in my bags. My brother in law Joel, aka "the master packer", got all my things into a suitcase (after I broke the zipper on the first suitcase trying to stuff everything in myself) and while it was over the weight limit, I was able to check everything in! So I went to board the plane with just a diaper bag and Eliseo in a little umbrella stroller. Sooo much easier!
The first flight, he slept for half of it. While he napped, I began to visit with the girl next to me. She was a young lady who worked in LA and LOVED children. She was sooo helpful handing me whatever I needed (blanket, bottle etc..) and Eliseo, who has been sooo shy, really liked her too! He even sat on her lap for a bit looking out the airplane window which kept him happy the remainder of the trip!
My second flight, right before we boarded, Eliseo started crying. I knelt down and prayed with him...prayed for our safety, prayed for safety for Daniel and the children now traveling to the airport to pick us up, and prayed the Lord would calm Eliseo and we'd have a good flight home.
We boarded, he fussed a bit, the airplane began to taxi to the runway, and by the time we took off, he was asleep...and he stayed asleep the entire flight! And would you know that the entire airplane was full that flight except for one seat...the one next to us! So I was able to stretch him out a bit and had such a comfortable trip home. It seemed to be too good to be true! What a difference from my first trip!
And I KNOW that it was the Lord's gracious loving care! How sweet it is to know He cares for even the things that really are so small! And how I can't stop thinking of how good He is and thanking Him!
Oh, it's wonderful to be home. Thank you so much for praying!

  16. What a blessing! And wow, what a lovely picture in the airplane. His eyes are gorgeous! I guess I am surprised to see them so straight right away after surgery. Is there follow-up work or patching, or is it done now?

    I pray you continue to feel God's blessings in your life as you bring your home back in balance and reconnect with your loved ones.
