We are in the midst of some very painful anniversaries for our little T.
As expected, there have been set backs
T. is struggling with staying in the present and not slipping back to her difficult days of Ethiopia.
Those past "difficulties" have crept into our everyday lives :(
We are working to NOT let the pain define her...
But to remember what & who she loves in Ethiopia.
That each of us could use our hurts to grow.
For T to become the beautiful strong little girl God created her to be!
And trust in our God's sovereign & faithful purpose in our lives!
"The LORD will fulfill his purpose, for me; your love O LORD, endures forever"
What I did NOT expect...
Is my response in this time of grief :(
There's an inward sadness.
stuck in a rutt.
It's so frustrating... to want to see things through His eyes only to be bogged down by my weaknesses.
But I am trusting in the truth of His words.
Resting in His faithful love & perfect timing!
One foot in front of the other,
This is what the LORD says:
"Stand at the crossroads and look... ask where the good way is and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls." Jeremiah 6:16
