Happy 4th of July!*!*!*

The true test of faith -- praising God during the storm! So many times, I'm in a personal storm/struggle and look to God to just "lift me out". And when he doesn't respond in my time frame, I begin to wonder "Where is he? Doesn't he see me down here, knee deep in all of this? Why am I still here? Hello? God, can you hear me? Where are you?" One of the hardest lessons that God has been teaching me is walking by faith. When I can't see him and can barely hear him -- I must keep walking. My pastor said it best when he told us one Sunday morning, "Don't doubt in the dark what God has told you in the light."

This is one of my most FAVORITE songs, set to video. It's a must see & hear :-)

On this Independence Day:
To our soldiers . . . we love you and we are praying for you! Thank you for keeping us safe!

May God Bless America!

"When the storm has swept by, the wicked are gone, but the righteous stand firm forever." Proverbs 10:25 NIV

Aaargh! That faith walk. In the middle of it, as you know. Your pastor's words are a great reminder!

So glad you had such a nice weekend with your friend. And WOW on the home front!
