In this you greatly rejoice,
though now for a little while
you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.
These have come so that your faith–
of greater worth than gold,
which perishes even though refined by fire–
may be proved genuine and may result in praise,
glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.
1 Peter 1:6-7
When skies are fair
It’s easy to believe
that goodness will prevail
and all is well with me
When skies are gray
It’s faith I need to see
beyond pewter clouds
to the God of Peace

Recently my husband, Ian, and I walked through one of our favorite parks.
Paradise Meadow is pristine.
We had a small lunch and coffee by a lake… heavenly.
I enjoyed a refreshing swim while Ian cooled off his feet.
God knew we needed this little respite,
and we thanked Him for it–profusely.
We’d just come through the gray clouds of uncertainty that we’d been under for over a year.
We knew Ian’s job was coming to an end,
since the company was closing its doors this month.
But we chose not to panic–we prayed and waited
and worried (Christians aren’t supposed to worry).
My husband ended up having a choice between three good options.
He chose the one that brought peace and provision.
Now we’re praising God for leading us back under clear skies.
There will be more clouds to walk under in this life…
will be there too .

gives me hope to keep trusting
regarding our parenting prayers.)
