All this would work for a band-aide over the burdens in my heart lately too. This week has been especially hard with new of several cases of marital strife. Although my husband is a youth pastor there seems to be a lot of ministry in this area also. More so lately than usual. In Sunday School there were prayer requests for lots of hurting people. Divorce, death, and tragedy. It is a reminder of what a depraved world we live in and that just because we are Christians we are not immune, it takes being activly connected to the Healer.

Two nights ago I was doing the dishes and looked out the kitchen window to see a glorious double rainbow, the brightest I had ever seen. Today outside although the wind in blowing furiously, the sky is a bright clear blue and the sun is shining. It is a reminder of Who is in control and that although we live in a sinful fallen world God is still there and if we just connect with Him, He will be our Protector, Healer, Physician, and Strength. Spring IS coming!

I TOLD you that was MY rainbow!!!
I love the little reminders and the little miracles that God sprinkles over our lives....
It is those precious jewels fill us with hope.
"For He who began a work in us will perfect it until the day of Jesus Christ."
Did you catch that?
On THIS side of heaven, He will perfect it.
Love that!
