I confess that this has been an up and down week for Ray and me. We have had wonderful times with our children and grandchildren. We are happy about Ray’s decision to be a minister again. Knowledge about Notgrass History is spreading. Those are some of the wonderful positives.
On the other hand . . . .
In other ways, it has been one of those “put one foot in front of the other” weeks. Care for my mom has ramped up a considerable notch and the number of available caregivers we know has been cut in half. For the summer, we are down from four to two, both of whom have limited availability.
We came to a point of crisis in Mother’s care a couple of years ago. I began to worry about the future. I was looking too far ahead. Then, I remembered that we only have to live one day at a time and that our future is in God’s hands. If what I feared did happen in the future, we would deal with it then. For now, I would just continue on as I had done, trusting the future to our faithful Father.
Now, it’s time for me to remember that again.
I know I am not alone in these thoughts. I am grateful to those of you who have shared your own challenges with me. So, I’ll pray for you and you pray for me, okay? When I look ahead, I feel a bit like I am groping in the dark, but I know that God isn’t.
I have come as a light
to shine in this dark world,
so that all who put their trust in me
will no longer remain in the dark.
