There are not always answers to our never ending “why’s”. Sometimes things just happen. Not so good things. Very, very hard, never ending things. Physical as well as emotional. My first instinct is to ask “why?”, but over the past few years of seemingly constant injury and surgeries, I have learned that maybe God just wants me to be faithful. To trust Him, no matter what. Just to be…..to breathe…..to stay quietly in His green pastures beside His still waters. To praise Him, because He knows what He is doing. He is making me more like Him. He is strengthening me. He made me, He sustains me, He loves me. No matter what.
It is so freeing……I don’t have to figure out the why’s. I don’t have to do anything spectacular. I just have to be faithful.
Praying for you, because I know all of you are probably going through something hard right now as you read this. Big hugs. Love, Lisa

We prefer crosses of our own choosing, but the crosses our Lord asks us to bear are better for us in the long run and are just what we need to win the race. Dia dhuit!
So true. So hard for me to learn, but God is very patient. Lol. Have a wonderful day! Lisa
