My little world has "righted" itself. It is such joy to just be at home and back to the comfort of everyday life. The windows are open wide to let in the beautiful breezes, the washing machine and dryer are humming away taking care of all the laundry that has accumulated over the past several days, I'm going to make a big pot of soup in a little while, there is time to practice piano, read a good book, knit a few rows....I am content.

God is so good. He has blessed me far more than I could possibly deserve. Events in the world swirl around us, and I know it is easy to feel as though we are caught in a terrible storm. But I am reminded, as I have seen His tender care of my family during our time of need, He will take care of us. As we walk faithfully in the way He would have us go, He will take us by the hand and hold on tightly. He is our rock, the firm foundation under our feet. He has not changed; He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He still our hope, our comfort, our peace. He will never leave us or forsake us. His word will forever stand.

I feel as though I am "out of touch" with everyone. Over the next few days I'll get caught up. Thank you again for your prayers and for all the sweet comments. That is the "real" stuff of life.

I'm so happy your Dad is getting the care he needs and all of you are back home. It never ceases to amaze me how good 'home' can be for the soul. Glad you are enjoying it.

so glad to hear this Linda. What a beautiful world in the midst of troubled times. A true testimony of His love and sustenance. I wanted to email you when you shared last time over at my place in response to suffering and prosperity, that was so heart wrenching and beautiful. I was so blessed by all that was shared. Thank you dear Linda, you bless me.
