It’s been one of those. But, God has provided grace through moments of joy, my wife and daughter, and knowledge that in just three weeks one of life’s greatest miracles will happen. Lord willing, we will have a new little girl in the family, and this week’s frustrations will be but a dim memory.
I take encouragement (and admonishment) in this passage:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:4-7 NIV)
