Today, I don’t have any words. They are locked in my heart and won’t come out. I have some people on my heart that my mind is wrapped around and they are all I can think about. Howard, the kindest, sweetest hearted man God has ever put in my life. Well, he and his wife will be dealing with the tumors they found yesterday in his liver and kidney. Chloe, a delicate, beautiful seven year old girl went to heaven last week and with an innocence and wisdom far beyond her years, pointed many to the unselfishness we should all aspire to. I am thinking about her family missing her. Jake’s friend Kent, a man I came to know, almost three years ago as we worked together in Jake’s old truck, will get his knee fixed this week. And then there you go, my Josh, ready to finish up his service to his country, spending one more blessed Christmas season with his soldiers in a land they are charged to protect. 

It’s times like this that I know of only three things to do; have faith on the bigger plan that God promises, ask for the strength to live this day, the one I am in, in a way that honors Him, and in Howard’s words yesterday, “count my blessings”. I’ve found nothing else that makes better sense.

Bible quote: In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may be proved genuine and may result  in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. I Peter 1:6,7

Song for the week:

You CAN spend your whole life buildin’
Something from nothin
One storm can come and blow it all away 
Build it anyway

You CAN chase a dream 
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway

This worlds gone crazy 
And it’s hard to believe
That tomorrow will be better than today
Believe it anyway

You can love someone with all YOUR heart 
For all the right reasons
And in a moment they can choose to walk away 
love em anyway

God is great but sometimes life aint good
And when I pray
It doesn’t always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
Yeah I do it anyway, YEAH, 

You can pour your soul out singin’
A song you believe in
That tomorrow they’ll forget you ever sang
Sing it anyway
Yeah sing it anyway, YEAH, YEAH

I sing
I dream
I love anyway, yeah.

Martini McBride.

 If you are the praying kind, if you used to be the praying kind, take a moment and send God a word for these and tell me, know deep in your heart, if you are reading this, should you have something you need for me to ask my Father in Heaven about, just tell me….
