a year ago my family & I spent a week in new york city. it was a first for our kids and a return trip for me and my wife. we had a great time! We did just about all you can do in three days and when we returned home, we found ourselves utterly exhausted. The "good" kind of exhausted.
as i think back on that trip, i find myself wondering whether I will ever return. it is clear things have drastically changed over the course of the past year and i just can't imagine exposing my family to all the unrest i see across this great nation of ours. and that, folks, is a shame!
but given all this chaos and turmoil surrounding us, i am at peace. my peace comes from jesus christ. my peace comes from knowing nothing happens outside the will of god the father. none of this is a surprise to the lord. the mess we find ourselves in today is not due to the color of our skin. it is due to our sin! yours and mine. so, don't fret! the world is not falling to pieces. The pieces are falling in place! know this: christ will return. we don't know the day or the hour, but we do know he will return. are you prepared? i am!
Writing isn't necessarily my cup of tea! It simply allows me the opportunity to articulate my thoughts and process emotions that otherwise go unexpressed.
