In a book I was leafing through yesterday a mother admonished her teenage son with the following words.
” God will put things right and don’t forget it. That’s what He’s about after all, putting things right. ”
My faith has been tested lately …still deep down I know this to be true. It is just so hard not knowing what lies ahead… when we are wishing with all our heart and soul that a loved one will be happy at the end of the transition tunnel.

Many years back one of our local reporters from the town paper asked if she could do a lampoon on the American Gothic look using cleaning supplies with my family. I told her sure but she might have to explain what each cleaning supply was since I was the only one using them!

Poor God… hope He is not having to run behind us undoing the messes we leave behind… yet I suspect He does. And the big difference is He does it with patience and grace!
So until tomorrow God …Grace and Gratitude from me to you for following me and giving me a shove in the right direction … do you need another bucket?
