In life we often have challenges that seem to come out of nowhere. Often they tiptoe through the back door. When we turn around there they are sitting at the table.
Generally they don't come alone. They bring companions. Soon every chair is taken and one is faced with the overwhelming task of prioritizing which needs attention first.
This has been my parents' experience for the past several months.
Tomorrow my dear mom will be having a medical procedure done in a near by hospital. What the outcome will be is yet unknown. I am hopeful that all will be well.
It is scary when we have to surrender our loved one into someone else's hands. No one can be certain that things will go smoothly. Sometimes they do...sometimes not.
Keeping the faith in spite of uncertainty is never easy. Yet without it life can be a dark place. In the end "The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love." Gal.5:6
Tonight as this post comes to a close I encourage any of you who might be in the midst of some big challenge to keep the faith. God loves it when we take time to look up!!
P.S. If you are so inclined would you take a moment and look up for my Mom tomorrow! I would so appreciate it. Thank you!
