Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Perspective.....

As I listened to a good friend fill me in on some of the challenges she has been facing with her own family, she ended with "it's nothing compared to what you are facing". The first words out of my mouth were, "it's all relative". I remind myself daily how incredibly blessed we are, and that "yes, this is beyond difficult", but our situation could be much, much worse. As we have poured over scripture the last few days, many times in a feeble attempt to gain understanding, I am led back to Isaiah 55: 8-9 "My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts," says the Lord. "And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine." For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways, and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
He continues to give us both strength and peace.
