He is Good

From God Calling:
You will conquer. Do not fear changes. You can never fear changes when I, your Lord, change not. Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever. I am beside you. Steadfastness, unchangingness, come to you, too, as you dwell with Me. Rest in Me.
SO really - how much more can I be reminded that the change I fear is of this world. Thank you Lord, that You are unchanging - You remain the same and in that knowing I can enter into Rest.

Life is a training school. Remember, only the pupil giving great promise of future good work would be so singled out by the Master for strenuous and unwearied discipline, teaching and training.
Makes me think about sports -  when a coach sees potential for a player to succeed at the next level they push them hard. The expectation is greater for those players then others ... this I get - this I understand. 
What a reason to REJOICE - We are pupils of great promise of future work for the KINGDOM! 

On Sunday 3 of my mothers dear friends stopped by with a special gift for Aaron and I to honor Jeremy. They purchased a fountain to create a focal point for a memory garden. They also gave us a give card to select the plants of our choice. How AWESOME that we can create an outdoor space in memory of Jeremy ... I have begun sketches. I look forward to posting the pictures of our creation! (On the side ... we are going to be creating a porch to accompany the garden ... any help or advice would be appreciated:)

Hi Beth, your blog today reminds me of a great song. My daughter sang it at church. If you find comfort in music you might like to check this one out. It is "Yesterday, Today and Forever" by Vicky Beeching. You can search on the web, there is a Utube of her singing it I believe. Take care--Robin Keerns
