You Are Good...

You we are moving closer to Christmas there are so many many emotions running rampant at our house this year. We are grateful for all that God has provided for us this past year, we have two beautiful children, David and I have each other, we also lost both of our Mothers this year, made two huge moves, brought a new child into our home, lost our jobs,and have been through more than our fair share of heartache in the last 12 months or more. We are exhausted...physically and emotionally...and, well it just plain sucks on some days. But, the good outweighs the bad when you look at it all. I have learned so much and have seen God's provision on so many many levels. It is amazing to see how HE has sustained us!!Every night when I put my precious Lili to bed, I play a CD while I'm rocking her. On that CD is a song that has sustained me many nights as I sat there rocking that child with tears running down my face. It is called "You are Good" and it is by Nichol Nordeman. I decided to look on Youtube and see if there might be a video of it...and sure enough, there was! So, I wanted to share it with you. It is a beautiful song and it ministers to my heart each and every night. I hope it brings you the same comfort!!!
So, are we blessed? Oh, YES!! Is God still in control? Oh, Yes Yes!! Is God Good to us all the time? OH MY...a RESOUNDING YES!!!! I hope you will take the time this Holy season to thank the ONE who blesses your life every day! The one who laid down the life of his only Son for you!! The one who is ALWAYS Good to you!!!!
Merry CHRISTmas!!!

Any one of those would be considered a major stress factor, but put them together... wow. Can you imagine going through single one without HIM? None of us know what is around the 'bend', but the knowledge of our Lord holding our hand as we turn the corner gives the greatest comfort.
