My new house closing has been moved up to next Friday so we can get the painting done before I have to move from the Vienna Abode. I am in packing overdrive. I spent the day yesterday going through pictures and momentos seperating and boxing them up. It was a very difficult day filled with a cloud of "Why". It was a tough day that lead to falling into bed at 7:30 and waking up at 11:30 with the same question rolling through my head. There is no answer.

Life is filled with these unanswerable "Whys". We are never going to understand. This is where faith comes in. Can you imagine how Job must have felt as he sat in the scorching sun---having lost EVERYTHING precious to him and is covered with sores----WHY????

As a Believer---I accept these unanswerable Why's----not with a smile----but knowing even as I grieve---that it ALL will bring God glory. I may never see how----it is unfathomable in MANY situations how----and yet--- with faith---I accept ---I cling---I grow---and move forward.

And I find, sometimes those Whys? hit you upside the face and you want to cry and beg for mercy but then, just then, God's peace is right there...I only have to grab ahold of it. So you grab it, lady! God loves you and so do I..and a lot of other people!

A book recommendation: Holding Onto Hope by Nancy Guthrie. It's a short read where the author takes you alongside Job's struggles and straight to the heart of God.

Praying the rest of your move goes smoothly.

You have become such a "ROCK" in your faith/relationship with the Lord. It has been strengthened and deepened. Joy awaits you for all your suffering; and yet, you experience it in small doses day to day. Take comfort in knowing that MANY people/friends lift you up in prayer and think of you daily. More importantly, God is right by your side.
