…but God

This has been a…hard year.

A year of a lot of loss but also a lot of prayers answered.

We’ve lost loved ones.

We’ve lost dreams. I lost a very personal dream but also was delivered from cancer, pain, and gained…a lot of weight 🥴 from that lost dream.

Milestones were not forgotten but … prioritized, often not in the order we wished but in the order which was right.

A dear friend found she had cancer….but God and she fight.

She still fights today.

We celebrated 50 years of God-focused marriage between my parents.

We finally found our Church home after nearly a decade of praying and seeking, going through different seasons, and being used at various places.

So, while we have seen loss and experienced hurt…we rejoice – I rejoice – because though we prayed and often felt like He didn’t hear us, He knew what was down the road and where our specific brand of love and talents were needed most. He saw us through fear. He delivered us from slings and arrows.

While my flesh wants to cling to the loss, the hysterectomy, the pain, the fear, the weight gain, the heartbreak… my spirit cries out in joy and appreciation for the hope of Heaven, no cancer, loving and being loved again in a Church family, and my family’s every need being met.

What do YOU choose to thank Christ for, today?

  1. I’m thankful for a God that is worthy of praise, that I have learned to want to give Him a sacrifice of praise every day. I am thankful for a wife that loves me, in spit of all my issues and failings. I am thankful for a family that is so good that I miss them when I don’t see them. I am thankful for GRACE, which has allowed those who shouldn’t love me to love me anyway. I am thankful that I didn’t get what I deserved this year, but that God has chosen to love and bless me instead. I hope I can keep learning to lean on Him, and recognize all the great things he has done in my life, and for my family.
