have you ever thought about the many faces you wear? so many feelings, thoughts, attitudes, emotions deeply hidden inside. This past week we lost a sweet, vibrant, full-of-life young girl that my youngest attended school with. She was longboarding an hit her head on a rock. Massive brain damage. i am feeling this loss and my son who is very quiet, has grown even quieter. His dad and i prayed with him when he first shared it with us. i can't believe she's gone.
on the flip side he shared a beautiful story about a friend at college. He took her to Wave on Wed night - a celebration of life through Jesus Christ and she accepted Christ as her Savior and Lord. How awesome! that Friday her parents called her to say her dad who had only a few months according to doctors to live had been totally healed from cancer. Now he is planning on coming here to visit her from Oregon.
i don't pretend to understand the Sovereign God but i do know after years and years of searching that for me He is The Only Way to find - peace, joy, love, confidence, empowerment in this crazy world.
