No matter how far you run though, life goes on. How happy I am for the lives that will go on. First, I got a message from dear friends of a cancer diagnosis.
This has nothing to do with the shock and sadness of that diagnosis, but it's so strange. I have two sets of friends in which the wives have the same name and their husbands have different names than the girls, but the same names as each other. Both of these guy friends have B cell lymphoma. So crazy. So prayers for Pastor Dave as he makes decisions about his health.
Imagine my surprise when stepping out to look up and find this beautiful rainbow above the trees in a rain free sky.
This scripture came to mind, along with Noah's promise, and with it some much needed peace.
A song of ascents.
1I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
2My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Thank you Lord!
1st Lt. was able to call Courtney on Sunday and confirm that all was well. Bless her heart, it's going to be a long year.
We also had a big time on first Playdate last Thursday and I'll be back with more on that later.
