Comfort zone

Grace's Miskito grandmother, aunt, and cousins came to visit.

this is what it looked like...

Grace's grandmother who hasn't seen her in a year was thrilled to see her and had a huge smile on her face as she baby talked to her in Miskito and held her arms out to hold her. Immediately Grace clung tighter to me as I tried to coax her into going to her grandmother she began to scream at the top of her lungs and kick reaching as hard as she could for me.

so many times I feel  like this is how we all act.

There is the Lord right there infront of us ready to love on us and we cling to what is familiar in the world. Like with Grace's Miskito grandmother wanting to love on her and Grace refused it because it was not what was comfortable or familiar to her.

my point in all this rambling is that sometimes we have to get outside of our comfort zone in order to receive all the blessings that the Lord has in store for each of us as His sons and daughters.
Here is Grace with two of her aunts, her grandmother, and the two boys are her cousins.

By the end of the visit Grace would give them kisses but still clung very tightly to her momma.

So an update just if people are confussed on the foster babies:

 Flordeli has gone home ( she was the 6 month old baby girl). Haley has been a little sick so we haven't fostered babies this week just for their health but we have Yahida (the sweet baby that is the same age as Grace) half the week and Henry (the 8 month old who is now 11 pounds) the other half of the week.
So I only have Grace and then one other baby at a time.
