The Goodness of the Lord

I remember, not too long after the accident that changed our family forever, I came across a passage in Psalm 27. Even in the midst of complete hopelessness, I knew the words would ring true for my sister-in-law, Rosanna, someday. Not then.
But I'm seeing it now.

"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD."
~ Psalm 27:13-14


Rosanna and her fiancee James will be getting married this spring and it's such an encouragement to see how God's faithfulness has played out in both of their lives. Though this isn't what anyone had pictured 4 years ago, it amazes me to see how God's love can redeem brokenness...

Yes, God has said He will restore the years that the locusts have eaten. Sometimes we may wonder whether God is always good, but He is. We never have to doubt that. He has proven that over and over again in my life. Blessings to both of them. Mom
