This morning right as school was starting I received a phone call from Bruce saying that my stepdad had suffered a stroke. Tonight as we were eating dinner with friends we received word that Bruce's mom had fallen and the ambulance was on it's way to transport her to the hospital. It's not been the best of days by any standard.
WAIT!!!! stop the presses!!!!
The truth is...
This day was the Lord's....Psalm 118:24
He had it all planned....Jeremiah 29:11
So....I can rest knowing that....
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor. 4:16-18
Thankful for a God who has the big picture all settled. Thankful for praying friends and family who lift our momentary needs to the throne on our behalf. We are blessed.
