Well when I think about the summer of 2013, my first thought is, "Well go ahead and chalk one up for the locusts."
Lots of hard and sad. Lots of struggle.
I honestly don't even want to go there - it was what it was...
SO in light of this reality, I wanted to blog NOT about that, but instead about the ways I'm being provided for - the goodness that keeps raining on me even in the struggle. I've come to call this place a "wilderness," and I've realized that God is providing "manna" all the time. I don't feel like I'm feasting on grapes from the Promised Land...but I have enough. God is enough. I do believe this...
And them sometimes I pray that He'll help me believe this. It's weird how belief and unbelief can be side by side so close.
I decided to hang something I call a "Manna Board" in my room where I can put the beautiful reminders of His goodness up to see and remember. I'm finding it keeps me from getting all crabby and ridiculous to be around...and it keeps my perspective in a more accurate place.
* Mike's baptism in the East Fork River - a group of us hiked down a huge hill to the river at the bottom...such a beautiful surrender to Jesus witnessed and celebrated.
