Yes, we are still here.
You know, I love those times in your life when everything is falling into place... you wake up in the morning and smile and life is just good.
And yet to be able to appreciate those good times- and to grow into the person God has in mind for you- sometimes you have to go through those dark days too. They are never fun, actually- they are quite painful. But a good stretch sometimes is. We are there right now- being stretched beyond anything I thought I could ever take. But I have to.
I have to.
So during this time we are constantly doing all we can to stay focused on God- and focused on what He needs us to do.
We are hurting.
It is hard.
But I know without a doubt in my mind that God will be able to use us like never before and that is the greatest gift of all.
