I can’t recall ever seeing this picture.
This dear friend left for adventures and excitement out of New England soon after her wedding.
24 years ago.
For the way things used to be.
For my son.
To see this picture reminds me of all our hopes and dreams back then.
She, now living in Alaska, raising 7 children and homeschooling.
Living with 2 children with Cystic Fibrosis.
Clinging to God’s promises.
The oldest a testimony to, medical technology, healthy eating, self care and grace.
Not taking a moment of this life for granted.
She journals here at Northerncffamily.
24 years is a long time.
So much has happened.
I sometimes long to go back with the knowledge I have now.
There are many things I would do differently.
But then I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t had those experiences..
I can only change the future.
I want to love more.
Use softer words.
Share the amazing grace found in Jesus Christ.
I won’t get it right all of the time.
But I can try.
Not for me; but for God.
Because He is all we need.
One act of kindness.
One gentle word.
That’s all it takes.
One moment at a time.
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,[a]
and to walk humbly with your God?
