It seems like each week I come to this place and ask why? I know life is a journey and there are times of joy but there are also times of sorrow.
Just this week, a friend found out that her 2 year old daughter has a malignant brain tumor. They operated and removed 95% of the tumor. They will have to do chemo and radiation to get rid of the 5% that was left. My heart aches for this family.
I sometimes wonder how we handle the difficult seasons but I’m reminded of this quote by Oswald Chambers….
We can’t give up. We have to have faith that God is in control. Do the next thing!
When my daughter found out about this tragedy, she texted me, “Why is life so hard?” My answer was simply, “Because this is not our home. We are here to shine light in a dark world and we never know how long we have.”
We have no guarantees of tomorrow but we have today, so let’s shine His light!
The song, Take Another Step by Steven Curtis Chapman kept coming to my mind.
Basically, the song is saying one minute everything can seem perfect and the next minute there’s tragedy. What do we do? Take another step, and then another, and then another……
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Isaiah 30:21
I have a hard time posting fashion pictures on Sundays but since I committed to 31 days of summer fashion I’m going to do it. You know I wasn’t going to get through 31 days of summer fashion without wearing my chambray shirt.
Have a blessed Sunday!
