will they never cease? Just about the time I think “what am I doing and WHY am I doing this?” God sends an answer…and blessings…and friends…and the list goes on…and on…and on…
Thank you to Dianne, magsmcc, Wendy and Natalie for your encouraging words yesterday. God does work in mysterious ways sometimes. Thank you again for taking the time to encourage me!!
He has made everything beautiful in its time.
He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;
yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
I think this is where I am today. Trusting that He is making everything beautiful in it own time. Trusting that He knows what is going on. When I cannot see the future or even understand the present, I can trust and believe he is in charge.
Lord, thank you! Thank you for the encouragement you sent my way yesterday, for these words in Ecclesiastes, for the words Kristen Armstrong wrote on page 123, for the sun, the moon, the beautiful day, my son and Your Son…I am so grateful. Thank you for a bountiful heart and a good attitude. Please help me keep both! Lord, I ask that you be with those that need you in a special way today. Please be with Andy, touch his heart and keep him open to your will.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. What is your Wednesday Wonder???

I read these verses this morning as part of @stephanieweinert chapter a day challenge
It has been months since I have shared in this space. A lot of hard things have happened.
Tomorrow it will be four months since the sudden death of a close family member that was in his mid-fifties.
The grief is palpable. The loss is cavernous.
And life goes on.
And I remember that “he is my help and my shield.” And I will be thankful.
With all the grief and sadness in the world I wasn’t sure how I would handle today. How I would allow myself to grieve this loss? Today when there has so much WRONG in our world. In a post @deidrariggs shared today she reminded us that life goes on. And I realized that today this is my life. And I can grieve this loss. My life goes on... I am thankful for the 4 days we had her. On Friday I will remember each event of her last day and I will remember her dying in my arms.
And I will be both sad and grateful. #infantloss #trisomy18 #stlouischildrenshospital
My Wednesday wonder is silence. It's still so bright and sunny, but my suns have gone back to school and the birds have gone where? Surely it's too early for migration? But outside in my back garden it is just so quiet. I have to keep interrupting chores (and bloggisme) to go and just sit. And quiet leads seamlessly into prayer. Don't you think?
My Wednesday Wonder was watching the Christian flag fly beside our American flag as I went for my walk this morning–things may not be perfect here but we are still FREE!
Thanks you for the acknowledgment.
Mary, thank you for mentioning me again here! You have been such an encouragement to me, too!
