Just one of those weeks...

Well, I did indeed fall off the face of the earth... ha. There are just those weeks that if you could fast forward past, or better yet, erase, and move on through life it would just be easier... this past week was one of those. It was filled with some really incredibly hard, hard things. Things that 3 years ago... or 3 months ago for that matter... we would have NEVER dreamed we would be walking through. Through all of this, I have to say that my heart has fallen in love with my husband even more deeply. It's easy to walk side by side in the sunshine, but when you see the man you love give in so many deep ways, hurt in so many deep ways, and at the end of the day still trust and love God deeper than ever... I can't help but stand in awe of the man God has given me. The reality is, tho, that life does indeed begin to place it's pressures, demands, expectations upon our hearts... and to walk in that with grace and peace is kinda hard. Especially when you'd much rather 1. "Tell it like it is" or 2. RUN away or pull the covers back over your head and pretend the day isn't here.
Forgiveness is hard. Courage is sometimes fleeting. Letting other's down is miserable. Loving is a must.

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

  3. The holy spirit has had you RIGHT THERE on my mind and heart constantly since I saw you last Tues. I just felt it. I have been crying with you and praying for you over all of the "stuff".
