His character never changes.

So, we've been under construction around here, feeling like the big pile of knobs that needs sorting and perfectly placed - but, still sitting on the table waiting.

Confusing, yes. 

We've had to alter our ways, deal with a few biggies: houseguests, a tiny baby cousin, a friendship torn, neurofibromitosis, cancer.  Some of those bigs have the capacity to knock the breath right out of us.

Or at least knock the energy right out of this Momma....

...but, the battle is always His.


"Be of good courage, and let us be strong for our people and for the cities of our God.  And may the LORD do what is good in His sight."
1 Chronicles 19:13
And I am learning that the good is not always seen by my amateur eyes, but my faith knows the good is flowing all around me. 
His character never changes. 
He just can't help but lavish the good all over us as He slowly and gently positions each piece in its perfect place, the position He dreamed into destination before our existence.

Praying your heart starts to flutter in excitement when the rain and wind start to hit, just at the possibility of the smallest glimpse of His good character in it all.

Preparing our hearts...

We are preparing, struggling to grasp the full power of His great love and sacrifice.
Praying for you and your precious families as you prepare your hearts to embrace the greatest sacrifice ever made...the only sacrifice that will give life.

"I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.  Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me."
Philippians 3:10-12

Love blessings abound...

"The steps of a man are
established by the LORD,
when he delights in his way;
though he fall, he shall
not be cast headlong,
for the LORD upholds his hand.
I have been young,
and now am old,
yet I have not seen the
righteous forsaken
or his children begging for bread.
He is ever lending generously,
and his children become a blessing."
Psalm 37:23-26

1 Peter 5:6-11

"Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.  Be soberminded; be watchful.  Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.  Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.  And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.  To him be the dominion forever and ever.  Amen."
1 Peter 5:6-11
