It's been another crazy week, people.
We went back to school after spring break, and it seemed like a whole BUNCH of homework assignments jumped on us all at once. After being home for a week, going back to the routine of being gone for most of the day, every day, has been tiring.
And other things have added to the weight of this week...
remembering one of Joshua's high school classmates who died in a car accident last week
the news of a friend of my parents' who was in a car accident with her daughters and who suffered massive head injuries (please be praying)
Sometimes you wonder how much more frustrations, sorrows, and suffering one world can take.
But then I look for God in everything.
God, who has blessed us so much this week through family, friends and strangers
God, who has given us rest, good health, a home, a car, plenty of food, clothes, etc....
God, who welcomed Joshua's friend home to heaven
God, who protected the little girls in the car accident and is now surrounding their mama with His presence
God, who blesses us in ways we often don't expect
God, who is in control of all things
Many of my friends are getting ready to graduate. Soon it'll be our turn. Thinking about the end of college gets me wondering sometimes-- will Joshua be able to find a teaching job right away? Where will we have to move? How will we make new friends? What will it be like, being in a totally unfamiliar place?
But then I remember...
God has great plans for us.
God has our future in his hands.
God loves us more than we can imagine (he sent his SON for us!)-- and has blessed us in the past.
So we can trust that he will continue to bless us in the future.
And for that, I am SO thankful.
