It is good to give thanks to the Lord
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning
And Your faithfulness by night….

We are thankful for God’s faithfulness in bringing us through some difficulties to a more stable time of life. We are also thankful for the opportunity to declare His lovingkindness to others. Ryan and Carly Decker minister to other young couples facing chronic illness through their blog, Reaching for Fringe. When we read their story, we felt an instant kinship with them since their major health challenges came in their 2nd year of marriage, just as ours did. We are thankful for the opportunity they gave us to encourage their readers with our account of God’s kindness and faithfulness to us through our difficult times. Check out their blog; perhaps someone you know will benefit from their ministry!
Beautiful flowers such as these remind me of our God’s kindness in creating a beautiful world and also giving us the capacity to enjoy it. These also remind me of my loving hubby who delights in giving me flowers. These were for Valentine’s Day this year, and they dried nicely for a little display above our window.
