Today I will go straight from a visitation for a precious woman who has been healed completely from cancer to a baby reveal party for a family who 8 years after their "youngest" is having another bundle of joy.
The Lord gives and takes away.
It never fails to hit me in moments like today of just how fragile life is and just how little control we have. We work so hard sometimes to get our life the way we want it - right house, right number of kids, right job, right income level - and then work even harder to maintain it. However, God's ways are higher than ours. He has plans for our future to prosper and never harm, despite what it feels like.
No matter what life brings, I pray I am faithful to praise The Lord. Whether he gives or takes away...blessed be the name of the Lord!
