Summer Comfort

It has been kind of crazy these past few weeks. I have been really busy at work and with other things. Joseph just recently got a new job and is going to California tomorrow to sign his contract and work out some of the details of what he will be doing. It has been a long process that started the first of July and I am ready for him to start working full time since he lost his job in April. He has been so patient over the past months and continues to be determined about finding the right job and taking it slowly so he does what is best for us. God has really taught us to rely on Him and that He does provide...in his perfect timing!

We continue to pray for Jason and Katie (http://www.therowefam.blogspot.com/) as they find strength in the Lord to get through these past couple of weeks and the months to come. I feel so encouraged by them to see how strong they have been through everything. What an amazing example of Christ's everlasting Love, Hope, and Strength! One thing that Katie said at Reese's funeral that really stuck out.... is that God is either Everything or He is Nothing, and I don't believe that He is Nothing, so that means that He is EVERYTHING! He is Enough! We have to trust that he does comfort, heal and give strength to any and every situation! What an awesome truth!

As tough as it has been to wait patiently for things in my life to come, The Lord gives me strength to take each day at a time, and trust in Him to provide at His perfect timing!

"Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you
