The week is passing by in a blur. Today we have a cold front passing by. The sky is filled with lovely clouds and the breeze is causing the trees to sway and dance in the early morning light. For the most September has been a lovely month.
My daughter in Arizona went to the doctor yesterday and had her ultra sound and it is a girl. I felt last night as I was crawling in bed that I am a very blessed woman. Our grand children count is five boys and three girls. I am very, very thankful for each one of them and just amazed at how God continues to bless us with each new life.
The kids and I have been talking about how hard last year was at this time, how all of us were going through at the time the hardest trials of our lives. How we were being challenged in ways we never dreamed possible.
Each one of them have looked back and all of them keep remarking of how grateful they are to be here. I of course have over thought the issue like always.
My thoughts are of course that no matter how dark the days, how long the nights. How the heavens seem shut up and all around me seems to be sinking sand. When I don't understand and I can't hear God, it isn't because God has changed but my vision is such that I want my way more than I want His perfect plan. When I finally give up and quit and just wait. Then I see what I thought were going to be the worst thing in the world, becomes transformed into a glorious gift of beauty.
I am thankful today, for what I couldn't see from my viewpoint last year at this time. I had no idea that God would take the breadcrumbs I offered to Him, and that He would change them into a feast. Nor would I change anything. Each day, I see how He has transformed the trials into gifts. Someday I will learn to trust even when I can't understand.
