As we visit with family and friends in the Pacific Northwest,
we've heard lots of stories of the past few years.
Stories of struggling with challenges like
caring for disabled loved ones,
experiencing debilitating health issues,
bearing long-term unemployment,
lovingly parenting through tumultuous times,
watching a lifetime of memories go up in flames in a home fire,
|Our dear friend Wyndall (second from left) lost his home in a fire early this year|
feeling the heartbreak of broken relationships,
functioning in a frustrating work environment,
losing loved ones in death,
and facing uncertainties about the future.
But despite the challenges,
the resounding theme we are hearing is one of
A theme of God's goodness, and of His care through the struggles.
We hear the desire of your hearts to trust Him,
to follow Him.
Thank you for sharing your stories with us...
for encouraging us with your faith in God Who is ever faithful!
Know therefore that the LORD your God is God,
the faithful God
who keeps covenant and steadfast love
with those who love him and keep his commandments,
to a thousand generations...
