A Month Later...

Time has FLOWN by!  Hard to believe that my last entry was a month ago!  Definitely feeling the stretch of life at the moment.  I started a new job two weeks ago and while it doesn't give me heaps of responsibilities it does take up more hours of the day, which leaves me less time to get everything else taken care of.  We'll see how it all works out!

  Aside from the busyness of life there have been some emotional events recently.  Some of my dearest friends in the world are moving away (You know who you are and you will be missed very much!).  This family is completely gorgeous, generous, and incredibly loving.  My daughter Jasmine adores them!  And I must admit that my heart is still recovering from the news that a beautiful Chinese girl that we love very much is being placed with another family.  Please don't take what I've said as complaining, because in the midst of everything of this one thing I am sure...

     That my Daddy God loves me and ONLY has good things for me.

  What a simple yet profound thought.  The God of the universe loves me and delights in giving me hope for a stunning future.  In the midst of our storms it's easy to ask "Where is God in this?".  We feel utterly abandoned and nearly crushed with grief.  But the fact of the matter is that God promised that He would never leave us, never forsake us, and that in the troubled day He will be there with us upholding us.  All we have to do is look to Him.  And just like Peter who was overwhelmed by the wind and the waves He will lift us out and place us above the troubled waters.

  Wherever you might be reading this know that there is a God who is ever strong, ever good, and ever present.  He loves you... and so do I.

Be Blessed!

Resting in His Grace~
