God is there...
"Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer."
Well, this is exactly what I needed to hear today, how about you? For anyone who may not already know, the director of our Spiritual Direction program, who had been in the car accident nearly three weeks ago, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday. This has been a heartbreaking shock, because Peg was home, on the mend and doing fairly well. And then, suddenly, she had an embolism and died. When something like this happens, one wonders, "Where in the world are you, Lord? And what are we to do?" That's when it's wonderful to just turn to the Word and read what we are to do. It's all spelled out for us and it makes so much more sense than what is happening around us. There are and will be many lessons and blessings throughout all of this, but it is also okay to sit and rest with the heartache. God is there. Love, heidi
