So I have been trying to lean on the promise that each of the Lord's children rests in His hands. I am His and he loves me. Circumstances do not dictate my faith rather they should strengthen it and direct me to look to Him always. I have been tested the past week. I am in for more testing as I go through the longest seperation from my husband since we were married. We were apart as he went to nuke school but I was in high school and there was much to distract me then. I am mom to Caedmon so I cannot pine after my husband for too long but I will miss him the whole time he is apart from us. And the still quiet times when I am alone are the times I am afraid of. I will strive to fill the lonely times with the Lord and reading the Word but I have to admit I do poorly alone. I love to be around people. And we just moved so I am filling up my new roster of friends slowly but steadily. I hope to find many adventures while Rick is gone but they will be bittersweet as my best friend will only experience it through letters and pictures.
Anyway, I was just contemplative this Martin Luther King Jr. Day morning. Looking at the blessings I have around me makes me grateful for people like the man this day celebrates. He strove for equality and now we have a President-Elect that would not be possible without Mr. Luther's efforts. Regradless of your political stance, it is quite an achievement.
