Monday Morning. Perseverance. Circumstances.
Perseverance. In the Lord. That is what we need this week.
Monday. Monday. Our children are back in school.
We had a wonderful weekend with our WP cadet at home. He looks good. He seems to be doing well, taking it all in stride. He is certainly an encouragement to all of us here at home.
D.L. Moody once wrote, about Romans 8:28, that if our circumstances find us in God, we shall find God in all our circumstances.
Indeed, God is in all our circumstances. Not a moment passes that do we do recognize the work of His loving hands in our lives. We continue to be truly overwhelmed by the lovingkindness and generosity of friends, understanding, of course, that all good things are ultimately from God above.
A dear friend from church, Elaine, is having surgery this morning. I am lifting her up before the throne of God, knowing that He is in control and that He alone can provide the peace and comfort necessary to endure such circumstances with grace.
The photo below was taken a week ago when we attended an Army Sprint Football game against Air Force. Our cadet, a member of the reserve team, served as the game ball boy. Our younger son was a big fan of the game.
I am blessed to have a wonderful, loving family. Even in the midst of difficult circumstances, we find joy together in the Lord. Because of the joy we find in Him, we are able to persevere.
