::nurture::

Ninety-seven percent of America's millionaires became wealthy through real estate investing. NINETY-SEVEN percent!!
Something to chew on. Not that I want to be wealthy...okay, maybe I wouldn't mind. I see a better retirement, kid's weddings, maybe kid's first houses? I've always thought it might be pretty cool to hand Luke and Leila a house or downpayment just as they are starting out. How fun would that be?

The first "Nurture Mom's" group was this morning and I am thrilled with it. Luke was shadowed by his therapist Adela. Leila seemed to have a blast in her class.
Yummy breakfast, fun, intellegent conversation.
Devotionals from: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World.
The mentor mom has a husband who didn't start walking with the Lord until 3 years ago, at 60.
The table leader has a 13 year old autistic son.
They are two very precious women whom I'm already in love with.
I almost cried twice. Once for each time these women spoke and gave their stories. I knew it wasn't chance that I was in that very place in time.
Do you believe God has a plan?
Do you believe His hand is in your life?
I do, and today it was clear He cares about me and leading me to those who have walked the road before me.

WOW - that is an amazing Stat....and I hear ya about not having to be wealthy - and yet - wanting so much to bless my children and others...I've been thinking a lot about that lately!

I am so excited about where God has led you - seems perfect - and praying that it continues to "nurture and fill you" with lots of great stuff!! YEA GOD!

Thanks for connecting with me. Hope you and your husband can amass some wealth young. It is very hard later to not have a comfy nest egg.

I think, with the way my life has gone, it would be impossible for me NOT to believe God's hand was in my life.
