This tree is so sweet! Decorated by children and outside for all the world to see. I hope you have had a really good week. It went fast for me, but I suppose that is always good because if you have a bad day, you know it will be over soon. A new day will come shortly and God is good to start us off afresh and anew.

"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, says my soul, therefore I trust in Him!" {Lamentations 3:22-24}

I never expected to find this verse in Lamentations! It is so full of life, and I thought this book had a lot of crying. It does, but you never know when you will find a nugget of encouragement among hard times. In fact, some of my worse times in life have been the times when I received the most life-giving truths. I remember when going through post-partum depression I was looking out the window at the grey skies and feeling the Lord say to me, I am always just above those clouds, no matter what the skies may look like, I am always shining down on you. That was almost 15 years ago, and I still remember it clearly.

Even in our hard places we learn of God's faithfulness and love that never gives up on us. We may give up, but He is still holding us, and He never lightens His grip. What faithfulness from the Almighty one who give us grace upon grace. Sing His praises loud and clear, He is more than enough for you!
