We be poppinnnnn!

When you love an adult child who is wayward, you forget to be happy....to feel joy....to be thankful!

I was reminded of this most recently when I met a young man in cyberspace who ROCKED my world!

We couldn't be more different: He's from Queensbridge, NY--I am a suburbanite in MN.

He is COOL.....well, I am menopausal! ;)

He wears shades....I wear prescription sun glasses!

He is YOUNG...and I am MID-LIFE!

Seriously, what COULD we have in common?

The more I read this young man's tweets, the more I realized that geography, age, style, nor color could stop me from risking looking like an idiot and asking Suga Ray if we could Skype. I wanted to talk with this young man.

Several months ago we did just that. It was a God-connection! A God-connection that has blessed my heart to the point of joy!

Suga Ray would say, "We be poppinnnnn!"

I understand now, what drew me to this young man was not his style, not solely his tweets (for seriously, this mid-life, midwestern mama needs a translator for urban-speak!)...but it was his heart. He has a huge honkin' heart for God.

Suga Ray would say, "I'm Down Wit G.O.D., And Jesus Christ, The Holy Spirit, He Runs My Life, Hallelujah, I'm Reppin Hard, A Christian Brother Preachin Good On The Boulevard........ DEUCES!!!!!!"

Seriously, could you resist knowing this young man?

I felt hope as I spoke with Suga Ray, I felt joy as I read his cyber postings. I felt gratitude for his heart for God--he is a rockin' reminder that God will provide a way. Suga Ray is a voice that cannot be ignored! Moms, Dads: THAT is what we have been praying for isn't it....that if WE are not the voice that draws our prodigals home....that they will HEAR the voice....the voice of one who has been called by God...to call our prodigals home!

Do you see the God-connection? Do you feel how much God blessed me? He introduced me to Suga Ray to remind me that HE IS FAITHFUL. I can trust Him. He's got a whole lotta people who say YES to His call.

Suga Ray would say, "If It is God's Will It Shall Be Done... Do Not Worry..."

So for this day...and every day until we throw that homecoming banquet, let me remind you in the words of Suga Ray:

"God's love 4 me is sooooooo good that b4 I was even born I was already a winner!!!! I AM STEPPING INTO MY DESTINY AS WE SPEAK!!! AND I HAVE SOME AMAZING FRIENDS WALKING BESIDE ME!!! Goodnight & God Bless!!! LOVE UR LIFE!!!!"

Be thankfu! Be happy! Be expecting God's blessing at any moment! Even IN cyberspace!
