"... if any one be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." II Corinthians 5:17
Luke & I are in the "Thumb" staying with my parents for the weekend... actually Luke is going home tomorrow afternoon, but I am staying for a few more days. It seemed like a good time to be here with my family with all my sister, Renee, & her family are going through after the fire. She has been handling it all very well... their testimony of trusting the Lord is going to play a big part in this whole tragedy...
non-believers are watching to see how they handle it all... we just pray through it all... people will come to Christ... God deserves all the glory! Today... Renee is feeling a little down... I think she feels like she doesn't have a place to call her own right now... she works from home & her home is very important to her... not in a materialistic way, but more as "home is home"... do you know what I mean? It is her refuge. They are looking at possibly a month before they can be back in their home. Their daughter, Brooke, graduates the end of May. They will also have a graduation party & all... it can just be so overwhelming. It will be fine... God promised us that.
I was reading in the Our Daily Bread today... the final thought really jumped out at me:
"God’s love still stands when all else has fallen."If you have a chance just send a word of encouragement to Renee... she knows people are praying for them... of course that is most important, but an email or a note could really help her along this journey.
with a grateFUL HEART, carin
