I usually like my posts to be light and playful and not too terriby wordy. But I felt the urge to post something a little more on the serious side. After seeing a few fellow bloggers' post on loved ones dying, friends being diagnosed with cancer and other devistating issues, I felt it appropriate to post something a little more solume. Reflection is always good.
It's been a tough few years for some folks out there. Between job losses, loved ones dying, homes being foreclosed on, problems with children, and sickness, life is hard. But one thing I do know, God is good. He didn't ever promise us anything otherwise. He never told us it would always be roses and picket fences. This is the world we live in. Hard as it may be sometimes, we need to rely on him, and not what we see. We've only been given this one life. We need to make the best of what we can. Love each other, help the hurting, feed the poor, love our children and live our life the best we can.
So when those minor things are bothering us, those little things that can drive us crazy but are so unimportant, remember those who have it so much worse. The people suffering in Haiti, those who have lost their jobs, or those who are suffering illness. Remember...life is hard, but God is good. I'll leave you with the words of Carrie Underwoods song "Temporary Home".
"This is my temporary home. It’s not where I belong. Windows and rooms that I’m passing through. This is just a stop on the way to where I’m going. I’m not afraid because I know this is my temporary home."
