One of my facebook friends shared this quote recently and I got permission to post it on here. It reminded me of a post on providence I shared a while back - it is comforting for me to remember that the Lord is behind everything that happens to us.
ou would be very ashamed if you knew what the experiences you call setbacks, upheavals, pointless disturbances, and tedious annoyances really are. You would realize that your complaints about them are nothing more nor less than blasphemies---though that never occurs to you. Nothing happens to you except by the will of God, and yet [God's] beloved children curse it because they do not know it for what it is."
Jean-Pierre de Caussade, from A Guide to Prayer for All God's People.
Before ending this post I just wanted to say that I'm thankful that the Lord brought the Es and I home safely last night as we traveled through some pretty bad weather. It was a good trip filled with wonderful fellowship and Lord willing I hope to share a post full of pictures tomorrow:-)
