What is the harsh reality of enjoying a peaceful summer?

What is the harsh reality of enjoying a peaceful summer?

Is it that we expect too much and try too hard?

There is magic in surrender.

But letting go often feels like giving in.

Maybe with our spirit we’ve found the one perfect battle to let go of.

Probably different for each of us. Similar, but uniquely our own.

Blessed Beyond Measure?

Dear Son, my email response to an email prayer request

God our Creator
Our God is an awesome, loving God

Dear Son, my email response to an email prayer request…

Sickness, illness, tragedy… none of these make sense, since our God is a loving God. As we all struggle to find meaning, the thought just occurred (seriously) as I typed the first sentence…

maybe the blessing is so painstakingly obvious that we can no longer see it…

the blessing is that we have life… and every minute of every day is a gift… and maybe if we enjoyed more of those, then when the time comes when that opportunity narrows or goes away… we don’t feel sorrow or regret, but joy that our loved one is going to see the King of Kings.

and maybe our hardships are blessings in disguise…

Don’t have the answers, but do have the gift of thinking about them… we all do.

Dear Heavenly Father, we trust that Your will be done. Please help us in our human weakness and imperfection.
