BUT here's the neat thing.
The little emergency respite fellow visited our house this evening anyway!!!
Our friends were next on the call list and they said YES! They said it was a God thing. They had just barely finished fixing up their guest room when the phone rang and they just knew they were suppose to take him. He's a great little match for their little boy and the children are having a blast playing together.
Several days ago we had invited them for supper for this evening and I was never so surprised to find they had this little boy that I had said no to. It was like, "You don't have to feel bad saying no when you have asked for direction from the Lord and you feel strongly that your answer ought to be no." God had another plan all along. And His plan is perfect.
As it was, we had the babies nearly all day and still got the brush pile burned, the grass mowed, the leaves all raked and moved, the potatoes dug, the house cleaned for company and food prepared for the Sabbath.
