Not in this life at least. I had some tough news today. Very sobering events that have taken place. It has all laid very heavy on my heart. It just reminds me that we are a fragile creation and things can change at any moment. It also makes me grateful for all that I have. I am so thankful that I have a God I can go to when I don't see the sense in all of it and the He will guide me through it all. So not every day can be bright and cheery but every day can be hopeful with joy in my heart that I am not in control and He that is, loves me more than I can even comprehend.
I took this picture this morning. It is very fitting for the events of the day. From inside my safe, warm home this scene is peaceful and beautiful. With the frosted trees and snow covered ground God's creation is a wonderful beautful thing. But with teperatures sitting right around 0 degrees it is not a force to be reaconed with. If not properly prepared one would be in grave danger battling these elements. It is peaceful, beautiful, wonderful and powerful this life we live!
