Stretched and streching

Truth: God shows his faithfulness in small ways to prepare my heart for bigger steps of faith.
Truth: I am a big chicken who prefers a sure thing over the "maybe"
Truth: Only God knows the future
Truth: I have to daily die to myself to be OK with that

God provided for my summer classes. Even when I was a nervous Nelly who got all worked up over NOTHING, He patiently showed me His quiet way.

Now, I've been presented with the possibility of the family joining Chris on the Germany trip if some very specific things happen. Chris is giddy with the possibility. It's just that, a possibility, not a given. We are in prayer. Care to join us? We are going to get the boys' passports just in case. (because there is nothing else to do this week, of course!)

Can you see me shaking my head? Not in defeat or despair, but more in disbelief that this is my life. Have you ever had that moment when you stop and wonder just what else was in store for the future because the recent past has been  incredibly difficult in your faith walk? Sigh. It is my blessed life.
