We've been enjoying having our daddy home.
God's been teaching us a lot lately and sometimes the lessons aren't very comfortable.
But I'm learning to be teachable.
To be joyful anyways.
No matter what.
To laugh because that's what faith does.
And to cry sometimes because God says that's okay, too.
Sunday night after the youth leadership meeting at our house, Joel left to check on one of the young people and a truck travelling the other direction turned across his lanes. He was riding his motorcycle and he laid it down right before it hit the truck. He managed to come out of the accident with only minor road rashes and a neck sprain.
I am praising God for His protection!! This situation could have been so much worse, but God in His mercy, has spared us. I know motorcycles are dangerous and I have covered my husband in prayer from the time he purchased it till now. The real reason behind the purchase was to save money on outrageous gas bills. But God's bigger than finances and difficulties, than accidents and hardships.
I'm learning to trust.
I'm learning even amidst the trials to be thankful. So very, very thankful for every minute God grants us here on this earth to blaze forth His glory.
"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
P.S. we're simplifying over here. needs vs wants and some wants have to go for a time...so I won't have internet service but I hope I can blog intermittently until we get it again. (I just realized that's what I do already: blog intermittently! I do have grand hopes of blogging daily though, it's one of my lifetime goals...haha)
Today is a blessing!
