Some wonderful opportunities have come my way, unfolding in recent weeks. In the midst of the grief, loneliness, and flood of tears, the Lord has never stopped moving for good in my circumstances.
Hard times are necessary for a host of reasons, not the least of which is learning God's goodness and faithfulness on a much deeper level. He has heard my cries and shown me some of His answers. I am feeling more hopeful and have concrete reasons to be encouraged.
My daily routines are going to change as I have been invited to travel in the coming month with family to some beautiful, fun, and spiritually-rich environments. Keeping up with the blog would be hard as I plug my computer into unfamiliar outlets and divide my time among a lot of delightful people of many ages. (yes, the grandchildren!) I need to take a blogging break for an undetermined amount of time.
Thank you for sticking with me these past several months. The Lord has used your words of encouragement and the prayer support to get me through. The last tear has not slid down my cheek, and the ache of missing my precious husband will be a part of me until I see him standing beside Jesus with my own eyes; but a milestone has been reached and I'm very thankful. Healing is in progress. People are seeing it in me and maybe I'm feeling it, too.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your ways straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
For those of you who are hurting, continue to lean into the Lord daily by reading His Word, praying when you have the words and trusting Him to hear your heart when you don't. He is most definitely at work in your life. Just believe Him.
