"And he said unto me, 'My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me'." 2 Corinthians 12:9 (KJV)
My strength was tested as I struggled with my health. I didn't feel well the majority of the week. Slowly my body is recovering. Low temp made me feel weird early a.m. My thoughts run wild, thinking I'm dying, never get to hug my sweet grandchildren again and on and on....stop it all ready! Missed my uncle Nat's 85 birthday party. My family goes anyway. He needs all the happiness today. His sister, who was my mom, died about a month and a half after his wife died in 2014. His only two children died within months of each other, of cancer, in 2013. Nat's had MS for years. It's a bit far to go in an afternoon but worth it.
I sit and write a post, feeling unsure what to say. But this I know, God is with me and my family as they travel. Continued strength He gives me each day and peace. God's with my uncle and his remaining family through their struggles...leaning on Him. Grace, freely given by our loving Lord.
We receive it and live out our lives in a way,
pleasing to Him.
I am grateful for the gift of rain we had on Friday. My sister, who lives in Washington state, said they had rain all day. I pray for more rain to squelch the wildfires here in our state and Idaho. Praying God gives grace and protection to the fire fighters in their battle against fatigue, heat, sweet rest and safety.
