My friend, Val, gave me this for my birthday. I love it!! It has so much meaning to me. This is a lesson I have been learning and it is not an easy one.
I love this quote so much because it is based on truth from scripture. It makes me think of these two verses that I love...
"Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy! I look to you for protection. I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until this violent storm is past." Psalm 57:1
I am not saying Tim's broken arm is a 'disaster'. It is hard and he is pitiful but there are many storms that are worse than this. Yesterday was actually a really great day. It was STRANGELY great. Like when the boys each said, "We want to do our school work all by ourselves" and then DID it. That is a first. I was AMAZED at how obedient and joyful they were and knew that God's grace was covering us.
There is another verse I love to go along with that one because it gives you a close-up view of what is happening under those protective wings...
"I think how much you have helped me; I SING FOR JOY in the shadow of your protecting wings."
