Cross to Bear

I have received this email from a few different people and just love it! It reminds me that (for the most part) each of us are NOT in control of the individual situations we are facing... We all have a cross to bear~ large or small, heavy or light, and if we try to control the outcome, we will surely be missing many blessings that lie ahead that are yet unforseen.















"We complain about the cross we bear, but don't realize it is preparing us for the dip in the road that God can see and we cannot."
"Whatever your cross, whatever your pain, there will always be sunshine, after the rain....
Perhaps you may stumble, perhaps even fall; But God's always ready, to answer your call....
He knows every heartache, sees every tear, a word from His lips, can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger, throughout the night, but suddenly vanish at dawn's early light...
The Savior is waiting, somewhere above, to give you His grace, and send you His love... "

"All these blessings will come upon you and accompany you if you obey the LORD your God" Deuteronomy 28:2

What a great example of the trials so many are facing. It reminds me of a saying I heard a while back that goes "Trust would be so much easier if we could see the outcome. I guess that's why they call it faith".
Continued prayers for you and Maddox from here, and asking God to keep you all in His sweet peace as you wait for Maddox to be born.

Love, Laurie in Ca.

I am not even Christian, and that is one of the most meaningful, beautiful things I've ever seen/read. My prayers are with you and your family.
