Last night Jeremy and I rode on his motorcycle to Carkeek park after work. We had packed a picnic and went down to the beach where we ate delicious heirloom tomato and basil salad, french bread, good cheese, and strawberries for dessert. We sat on towels leaning against driftwood watching as the sun set behind the mountains over the water. It was breathtaking. Just a moment where I knew God's presence tangibly. What is extra special about that is that it is a totally answer to prayer. I received some prayers via email from friends and they nearly all mentioned experiencing the presence of God in a real way in our sadness. So thank you friends, and thank you Lord. You are worthy to be praised!
It reminded me of the lyrics of a song which a friend sent to me recently. It wasn't a new song to me, but in the midst of our sadness about this miscarriage it became a true anthem. "All of my life, in every season, You are still God and I have a reason to worship"
Wherever you are today, whether it is a sad or joyful time in your life, I hope that it blesses you.
