Life These Days

Life has a way of taking unexpected twists and turns.  You don't know where you will be tomorrow or how your circumstances may change.  At this time I find myself in a place where I never thought I would be.  I'm am not sure what tomorrow will bring and I rely on my Heavenly Father for support to carry on.  Each day is an opportunity to witness His hand and provision in mine and my children's lives.  Due to circumstances in our lives, we have had to leave our home.  Leaving most of our possessions behind.  It has been a difficult month.  We have grieved over everything we lost, over the uncertainty of our future, and over the pain we have felt in our hearts.  But during this time, we have experienced many blessings and God's provision.  We were able to celebrate with my sister as she received her Master's Degree in Speech Pathology.  I am so happy for her!!  It has been a long and tiring road for her. We are celebrating my daughter's acceptance to the nursing program.  She has completed her first year of college and I am so happy and excited for her!!

I am so thankful that God has blessed us and kept us through these difficult days.  We are on a new journey, unsure of what we will face in the upcoming future, facing the challenges that lay ahead of us.  Taking each day as a new and glorious blessing from our Heavenly Father.
