I know that is not very poetic. It is ugly. But it is how I feel this morning. God granted me peaceful sleep. I woke up around 2:00, whispered another prayer, and went back to sleep.
The news is not good. I will wait to give more details until I've talked to Kristen this morning. I hope she'll share details, and I'll link you to her. I just wanted you to know, since so many of you prayed yesterday. I know she was uplifted by your prayers, because she was calm and strong throughout the day. Please continue to pray that she will be able to concentrate at work. I know I am leaving you hanging, but I feel like it is her place to give me permission to share more.
We are headed into another battle. It is the Lord's. I must remember that.
He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people (Living Bible).
My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weakness (NIV)
These are the words that came to me as I got up this morning and prepared to write this post.
I look up to the mountains; does my strength come from mountains? No, my strength comes from God, who made heaven, and earth, and mountains.
I am thankful that I can physically lift up my eyes to the hills. This shot is of Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain Park. There are beautiful sights, then there are rugged shots - this is a very tough climb. Ask DC about it sometime. But it is reality - beautiful, but tough. Alot like life.
Thanks for your support. You are a blessing to me.
