Last Sunday in my Good New post, I shared that it had been a difficult couple of days. I did not give many details about what happened and I will not in this post either.
However, many people have been praying for our family and we have seen the results of those prayers. This week has been much better than I could have possibly imagined. There have been moments where I wanted to pinch myself to see if I was dreaming. It has been that dramatic.
Does that mean that I believe that all problems are finished and I can get ready for the perfect life? Of course not. I have learned long ago that I need to celebrate each blessing as it comes and for what it is. When things go well, I give thanks to God. I know full well that more challenges will come. I will have bad days. I will get frustrated. But more good days will comes as well.
I can be thankful for what I have seen and experienced this week. This morning in church we sang the hymn, “O God Our Help in Ages Past.” To me the faithfulness of God in the past gives us hope for the future. The blessings of this week give me hope for what God has in store for our family in the days and weeks to come.
