Yes, God does watch out for us. The time I FELT God all around me, constantly, was when we travelled to Russia 2 times to meet & bring home our children. Both my husband & I are USUALLY extremely bothered by cigarette smoke...it never bothered us a bit; driving in Russia has to be seen or experienced to be bleieved! We lived thru it...even driving with both kids (ages 8.5 months and 25 months) and no seat belts or car seats. I was searched COMPLETELY (all over!) because a few weeks before trip 1, a couple women blew up a Russian plane with explosives in their bras. We were kept safe...even flying Aeroflot!
God protects and blesses us. Our daughter, now 4.5 years (then 25 months), is a great believer in prayer...even to the point of praying for help in toilet training! Such a blessing! Our son, now 3y2m, is starting to follow in his "big" sister's footsteps! (I say "big" because she's 16 months older but weighs 10 pounds less & is 2" shorter!)
