It's been a really rough week for our family;
losing our dog was only part of it -
but this past year for me has been all about looking
beyond the pain of the moment,
and trusting God for the big picture.
It's definitely the lesson He has been teaching me;
knowing that now I see through a glass darkly;
but someday I'll understand.
"Therefore we do not lose heart.
Even though our outward man is perishing,
yet the inward man is being renewed
day by day.
For our light affliction,
which is but for a moment,
is working in us a far more exceeding
weight of glory,
while we do not look at the things
which are seen,
but at the things which
are not seen.
For the things which are seen
but the things which are not seen
II Corinthians 4:16-18
Tonight we're packing,
and early tomorrow morning we'll be heading out
to visit our family south of us.
There might be a picture or two now and then;
but it's going to be more quiet here than usual.
See you all in two weeks!
