His sovereign care.

This morning I went for probably my last walk in the "cemet'ry" across the road. Ok, maybe not last EVER, but last for this season. I had "Blessed is the One" from the Psalms CD on repeat.

What a beautiful morning with clear blue skies, what a wonderful sight as I ponder the brevity of life and wonder what legacy's these people have left on this earth. Such a sober reminder- this life is not about me or what I want. What will exist on this earth as a result of my life once I'm in the ground?

I will always hide at my Savior's side. I find my refuge in His sovereign care.

This is my favorite line of the song. I am overwhelmed as I ponder Christ's faithfulness this year. His sovereign care. As I walked the familiar paths between tombstones and over hills, I remembered sweet, sweet times of worship and prayer that I had this year in that place- people I prayed for, marriages, LIFE girls, revival, the GAP Team, my own personal life...I am astounded. He is Faithful. What a faithful God we have.

It is with joy in His faithfulness that I take the next step in my life; knowing that because of His unchanging character, past prophetic of future faithfulness.

My things are packed, and moving day is tomorrow. I'll be at the Mc Can's for 4 days next week as we do our Holiday Club (aka VBS) before saying goodbye to the remaining Gappers and flying to the States on Thursday-- see you all soon!

WOW!! I can't believe it's been a year. I am in awe of all that God has done not only in your life, but in mine, and those around us. He is so faithful and so good to continue to draw us to side, let us find refuge in Him and to know that their is nothing else we can do to recieve grace. What an amazing God we serve. Will be praying for you this week and the many transitions you have coming your way. May God be your strength in the lonely times, and may His peace & joy be forever on your heart. Can't wait to see you. Love you!
