“God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and yet He chose your heart.”
Wanted to drop you all a note to share some good news… After recent visits to my doctors, my labs seem to be heading back closer to the normal ranges, and I am very thankful for that! We were concerned about that, and feel much more confident based on these results. We will continue to closely monitor things as always, but this is good news as I near my four year anniversary of being diagnosed. Also wanted to share that sometimes we wonder, as I often have, 'what did I do to deserve this?' or ‘why did God allow this to happen to me?' Here is a wonderful explanation of “why” a good friend recently shared with me!
“A daughter is telling her Mother how everything is going wrong, she's failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her, and her best friend is moving away. Meanwhile, her Mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the Daughter says, 'Absolutely Mom, I love your cake.'
'Here, have some cooking oil,' her Mother offers. 'Yuck' says her daughter. 'How about a couple raw eggs?' 'Gross, Mom!' 'Would you like some flour then? Or maybe baking soda?' 'Mom, those are all yucky!' To which the mother replies: 'Yes, all those things seem bad by themselves, but when they're put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!' God works the same way. Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and *difficult times. But God knows that when He puts these things all in order in His timing, they always work for good! We just have to trust Him, and eventually, they will all make something wonderful!
God is crazy about you. He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning. Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen. He can live anywhere in the universe, and yet He chose your heart.”
May each of you enjoy a “slice of that cake” as you enjoy those spring flowers and beautiful sunrises each day! God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. Wishing you all well and thanking you for being such a special part of my “Home Team”!
