One of those Weeks...

Dear friend,
2014 slipped in on me.  This first week has been a blur... and it may seem like that for you.  Across this great nation, temperatures are low and it seems like the whole world is frozen.... but that doesn't have to be any indication of how this year will go.

2014 can truly be anything we want it to be.  And I don't say that lightly.

As we look back and look ahead and try to figure out where we are and where we're going, let me encourage you.

It won't be winter forever.  You may feel alone, you may feel like noone understands...

but you're wrong.

And it's ok to be wrong.  Life is not about being right. It's not about being perfect.  It's about living, breathing, dreaming,  holding on to what we know and what we hope for.

Your pipes may be frozen.  Your heating unit might have gone out.  Your hot water heater may not work.  Your grandma or your best friend might have died. (And, sadly... three out of the four have happened to me this week.  Thank God no busted pipes!)

But His grace is sufficient.  His power is in you.  And He loves you... no matter what.   And when you think you just can't take another step, when you are so tired you can't keep going and you really don't even see a reason not to just sit down and cry...

He's there.  You can cry out to Him, and He'll carry You.

You are His...

And He's such a good Daddy.

Linking up with Holley Gerth for coffee and encouragement today at
