After the sale, our backyard was filled with family and friends, eating hamburgers and then later, toasting marshmallows for s'mores. The kids played hard, running around barefoot while stepping on an occasional dropped chunk of watermelon. Living outside on a summer evening really seems like the best use of our time. These long days go by so quickly and I feel like we really need to enjoy them before we go back to sweater and soup weather.
Life is complicated and a lot of circumstances are beyond our understanding. But even more so, life is beautiful. I'm glad that God made us people that can feel things. We are not numb and we weren't created to be numb. There is beauty all around us and we were designed to enjoy it. Also, there is heart ache and circumstances that seem unfair and we were designed to recognize those situations and try to help out where we can.
Do me a favor and please say a prayer for that sweet Momma and her family. Pray for a miracle and pray for strength for her and her family.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.♥Angela
