I’m starting my week with a day off.. how nice, right? Well, most of it has been filled with cleaning and laundry. It’s crazy how quickly those two things get pushed to the side when life is busy. I figured I would take advantage of this heat and clean. :/ Bad idea. If you have a pool…please invite me over. I’m pretty sure it’s hotter inside my house than outside. But besides the heat, things have been pretty tough over here. Family and friends are going through some severe struggles, and all Cody and I can do is pray. It makes it difficult to watch your friends suffer when you can’t do anything to help. It made me start thinking how God is good in every situation. Even when I can’t control a thing, He’s consistent and has control over everything. What a relief. This blog post is a reminder that God’s will and his love is better than we will ever know. My nephew is now three years old and the most adorable boy you will ever meet. His life is an example of God’s redeeming love. After not being able to see him for a year-and-a-half, the Lord provided a way for us to now seem him multiple times a month. And what a gift Ry has been to us. It’s amazing how God takes such a bad situation and turns it around to display His Glory… it allows us to be apart of His Kingdom and to truly know the Gospel. So to all my hurting friends, there is still hope. A Hope that is bigger and better than we will ever know.
