I've had this on my fridge for a long time. This was all a nice thot but I don't think I really GOT it until Matt went to prison. Those were some dark, tough times, but I can honestly say I wouldn't trade them for anything because of all God did. I grew closer to my Heavenly Father than I had ever been, I grew to trust Him more, saw His grace at work, knew His love and that deep down joy no matter what (count it All joy), and the praise goes to Him for all He did.
Sometimes if something bad happens now I have to get hold of my thinking and remember---
He has taken me thru thus far and He will faithfully take me thru this too. And that's the wisdom for today.
