slices of life...

I raised my head up to gaze into the sky and my attention was drawn to the sliver of a moon that seemed to be making it's final attempt to be noticed before it escaped under the horizon. I was sitting, waiting, and wishing many things as I looked at it's brilliance. It was after only a few minutes that I realized that I am in a time of rejoicing for what God has done in my life. For those of you that know my story, (it is alot like Job's story in the Bible) you know that it has been a life filled with much sorrow from things being constantly ripped away from my very being. However, even though I was enveloped in darkness as I stared at what was left of the moon, I could have sworn the dawn was breaking. I felt refreshed and rested in knowing that all along God has been pouring out His blessings on me in ways I can't even form the words to write about. It felt so good to be reminded of the peace He gives, and although I know those valleys are sure to come around, I'm going to be standing a little bit taller and be a little bit stronger next time. "I will open rivers on the bare heights, and springs in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land fountains of water." Isaiah 41:18
