There is the move...the kids' happiness at their new adventure, and their sadness at leaving friends and family. One minute happy, the next sad.
There is my brother-in-law's battle with cancer.
A dear friend called this week to tell me that her husband has cancer.
A sweet adoptive Mom with ten kids, died of cancer on Monday.
Sometimes life is just too sad.
And yet...there are the constant hugs from God in small details.
*The trees here.
*My husband home from work EVERY night instead of traveling Tue.-Thur. every week.
*My Walden Pond (by the way, I hated that
Jordan and I took a walk around the pond yesterday, and I was able to take some photos of the woods. As I looked at them, I felt God's presence in the stillness.
Sometimes life's path is flat and relatively easy
Sometimes it is hilly, and takes some unexpected twists and turns
Sometimes there are frightening, exhilerating waterfalls
Sometimes I need to be reminded that God is very big and I am very small
That He wants to take my small seedlings of faith and grow them...
...into something tall and strong
"...I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you..." Isaiah 46:4
