Finding His Glory in my valley
"Help me learn by paradox
that the way down is the way up,
that to be low is to be high,
that the broken heart is the healed heart,
that to have nothing is to posses all,
that to bear the cross is to wear the crown,
that the valley is the place of vision.
Let me find Thy light in my darkness,
Thy life in my death, Thy joy in my sorrow,
Thy glory in my valley."
My perspective on life has changed alot in just
a few short days.
I feel suddenly older.
I feel grateful for the lives of my children and husband.
I feel like I don't walk this path by myself,
I have friends who care deeply for our family
and I'm so thankful we don't walk this alone.
"Two are better than one," says Solomon,"because they have a good
reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion" Eccl. 4:9-10
I now know what that verse means. Our friends have lifted us up so much over the past
two weeks. You know who you are and I say with tears thank you...for helping us do hard things.
For holding us when it felt as though we would surely fall.
Your children have been such a blessing to us and I'm so glad you are all a part of our life.
Taylor took this picture early this morning and it reminded me Today is a new day and with
the Lords help I'll make it through THIS day and when I lay in the arms of my sweet dear
husband tonight I will thank the Lord for getting me through it. Even though it may not be pretty I made it through..
When I wake up in the morning I will ask Him for help again to just make it through another day.
It's kinda day to day....right now......
Thank you for all of your kind words, cards, calls..... It really helps.
much love from the front lines,
