New– every single time!

After last night one would think that today would have been full of gloom.
I love how God meets us in our mess and gives us rest when we don’t ever expect to find it.
My son woke up and had a good day, as did I. It’s the beginning of a three-day weekend here and we have no major plans.
We received so many responses from friends and family who sent messages, posted, and called to say they understood and loved us (and missed us too, of course).
It reminded me of one of my favorite verses, ““Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness! I say: The Lord is my portion, therefore I will put my hope in Him. The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the person who seeks Him. It is good to wait quietly for deliverance from the Lord. It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is still young”. (‭Lamentations‬ ‭3‬:‭22-27‬ HCSB)

This is exactly what my post on community was all about. We don’t ever have to be alone, and thanks to God, my family, and friends- we are not.
