God Still Sees Us.
Then, this morning, Dondra, Jeff, Julie, Emily and Stephen came over and cleaned out the garage quite a bit. It was fun to watch Don light up when they discovered some old relic he had been holding onto for years. And it was sad to see him struggle with getting rid of things that he was hoping to be strong and healthy enough to use again.
This evening, Don said he was going outside for a while. I watched him as he headed straight for the garage. He was in there quite a while - just looking around, he said.
I wish all the changes in life were joyful, pleasant and easy. Unfortunately, that's just not the case. It's important, though, to handle ALL the days of our lives with the presence of God close beside us. Finding those things for which we can be thankful. Laughing as much as possible. Enjoying the innocence of children. Resting in the acceptance of family and friends. Knowing that, through it all, God knows where we are.
