This is a re-post from last year on this day. Sending prayers of gratitude for the hands that have held us and continue to shower us with grace.
Being a Giver. . .it is Hard to Receive
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
I could hold in the tears and the magnitude of our loss no longer.
We have lost a beloved son.
And yet we are not alone.
2 Corinthians 4:8
We are hard pressed on every side,
but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
This is Elijah and his good friend Thomas on a school trip for LUHS.
The fact that Elijah is on this trip is a story I long to tell you. . .later.
Sometimes we can’t understand why things happen.
But God is managing the details.
Each detail is so important.
So I take my weary and aching heart and I surrender all the details.
O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.
