The kids and I were talking today. We were comparing our lives to a rubber band that God seems to be stretching and stretching and we wonder when we'll snap! Or rather a maze with many turns. You know what is at the end but how to get there we have no idea. One of the kids said it's like whatever decisions we make, things will never be the same. What on earth am I talking about? Well, God seems to be doing some stretching in our lives. While decisions are hard to make, and often painful, things need to be decided on. How good it is to know that God is directing our lives even when things seem topsy turvy. How good it is to know we can put things in His hands and leave results up to him. How good it is to know that even small things, like summer plans, are important to God. How good it is to know God cares!!


  1. Thank you SO MUCH for posting that...that was such an encouragement right now; you posted that right when I needed it. Thank you so much for sharing. And yes, praise the Lord that He cares!!!

  2. Amen! I am encouraged by the thought that God is in control. We also are in the midst of some PAINFUL realities and decision making. Yet, when we look back on our journey with God we see His hand in the midst of the throrns. Keep Pressing on. Oh yes, and the there's a family in the Philipines inviting you for a Summer visit.
