when it rains...
How true this statement has become this year.
A combination of tragedy, my mom's broken ankle,
cruelty, pendulum-emotions, and a whole lot more...
My blog is so sporadic these days.
My days feel just the same.
I am reminded of God's faithfulness,
over and over again.
He has crumbled some walls for me -
answered some desperate prayers.
Just when things look hopeless, my God delivers again.
- EH&SS: A Tribute to the Cathedral Quartet
This album is one of my latest iTunes purchase
(made possible with a super-thoughtful gift card)
and is one of my favorite "listens" right now.
The "Gaither Medley" is awesome -
especially the clip with George Younce saying the following words:
Thank you Lord
Thank you for music and singing
And for giving us so much to sing about
Thank you for simple things
The sun coming up in the morning
Rain when the ground is dry
For sleep, when our bodies are tired
And a good meal when we are hungry
Thank you we can feel things
That we can laugh and cry
Thank you for the good times
But thanks for the hard times too
That keep us depending on you
Thank you for homes and children
And for giving us the chance to know what it's like to be loved
But most of all, thanks for giving us your Son
Help us to love like that
Lord, we just want to thank you
Thank you for being so good
Hard times can bring growth and beneficial changes...
so I am going to try my best to say
"thank you" for the hard times.
