On the verge...

of something. In these days of facing so much unknown, I feel like I'm constantly on the verge of something:
• Wonderful
• Terrifying
• Exciting
• Terrible
• Tears
• Laughter
• Forgetting to breathe
• Exhaustion
• Anticipation

I keep reminding myself that fear is crippling and it is my biggest enemy. I must take each day as it comes, resisting the temptation to take my answers from yesterday and presume that they are applicable for tomorrow.

Life is not as we plan it; that I know for certain. It is, however, beautiful. It is complicated. What peace we can find in knowing that there is One who sees all and knows all. I’m glad it’s not me!

Dearest, sounds like you are sitting on the edge of the Grand Canyon, hoping the wind doesn't pick up. As George MacDonald would say "...just do the next thing" and do it the best you can. Life does not require more.And it usually responds in dramatic ways to our smallest overtures of faith. Love you immensely, Mom
