What I Know . . .

There's lots - TONS! - that I don't know.  But I do know one thing.

There is so much hurt and pain and anger and confusion in our world right now.

I could (but I won't) name at least 3-4 of my blogging friends who are in the midst of trials right now.

Pain and suffering, family issues, loved ones on the wrong path.  So much hurting.

And you know (if you've been reading my blog very long) that my family and I have plenty of problems of our own.

I don't have the answers.  I don't know how to stop the pain and confusion.  But I DO know one thing!

I know that 'my' God is good.  He is gracious and kind and He knows we are hurting.

And all we have to do is ASK.  A while back one of my favorite bloggers had this verse in one of her posts, and it really struck a chord with me that day . . .

Psalm 31:5 The Message:  I have put my life in your hands. You won't drop me, you'll NEVER let me down.

And He will never let us down.  These days, when things sometimes seem overwhelming, I'm trying, really trying to put myself in His care, and let Him carry me through.

And there's no better place to be.
Blessings foks!  Becky
