I just think this is so cool. And I've been meditating a lot on my posture before the lord and in this world and it is my prayer that my posture consists of my eyes looking up to the hill full of confidence of the help that comes from my God. Its hard to put into words but once you know suffering and i mean know it intimately, i think it is then that the Lord teaches you more about hope. Why understand the value of hope if you don't desperately need it. Our pastor came over yesterday and He was reading from
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we NOW STAND, and we rejoice in HOPE of the glory of God. 3 More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5 and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
another version says, hope does not "disappoint". Some people would rather not suffer and not understand Hope as much. But scripture makes it clear that it is a BLESSING to suffer because it produces HOPE and that will NEVER disappoint us, rather it is a sweet sweet gift and i feel blessed that the lord has chosen to reveal this hope and love to my family.
No where does it say this is fun though. haha.

So i've been uploading a lot of our camera pics into my computer and i came across some awesome pics of dad! It was such a sweet reminder because being surrounded by him as he has been for the last year...its easy to forget what things used to be like. He is so precious. Here are a few of my favorites! He's so fun. The best dad ever! I miss these times. Its hard to think about losing the piece of your family that held it all together. He was the glue...He was so vital to how we all functioned as a family. Of corse the lord will help us transition but this just feels so wrong. I know its not...its just as the lord has planned and it is for his glory and our good..somehow. But i miss it.
