I know I haven’t blogged about our fourth yet.  I want to write, but I’m a little scared to write.  There is a lot going on inside.

This week I’m dealing with something ugly.  Asking why.  I know all things work together in our lives…. I’m trying to see the big picture.  Even in the midst of pain there is joy.  A lot of joy.

  1. Lucia definitely enjoys the pool 🙂 Has Jameson gotten any braver about getting in the pool? Sorry to hear that this hasn’t been a good week for you. Hope everyone is doing okay. If you need a listening ear, you can call me. I may not have answers, but I can listen. I love you.

  2. I’ve been asking a similar question this week. Its:how? But it’s a panicky; having trouble sleeping type of ‘how?’. Yesterday it was really bad, but then my mom sent me an unexpected card with the perfect verse: 2Cor 9:8. It gave me much hope, I hope it does for you as well.

  3. Liz, I too have been dealing with the same question. This has been an incredibly difficult year for my family and have been grieving several losses. But especially since losing our sweet baby. I have only taken solace in knowing that while I will not know “why” until I am in Heaven face to face with our Creator, I can CHOOSE to know that He knows why and that is enough for me. It is not to say that I am not angry, or that I am not an ugly mess on the inside, because I am. But I cling to this promise, that God allows good for those who love Him. (total paraphrase I know). I love Him immensely. It is hard sometimes to cling to that hope and promise, but its vital for me. When I feel like I am drowning, knowing I can turn to Him, and knowing I can yet, rant, rave and question sometimes, and it be okay, is an awesome thing. We serve a mighty God, and He wants you to bring those things to you. We are in a battle. And it is easy to get weary in the battle. But remember He has some awesome wings that we can find our shelter and solitude in. He gets it. He’s been there. I am praying for you.
