behind rainy panes

my heart yearns, cries out for sun…

i don’t want to pray.


i asked You for sun…

“i want to go out and play,

then i’ll be happy!”


You said, “stay inside,

you need to learn to trust Me.”

it’s hard to be still.


i thought i knew best,

but you gave what i needed…

shelter in the storm.


My dear girls,

for years i’ve prayed for my dad to be healed from M.S., but still he lays in bed, not able to participate in my daily life. And yet, God has shown me that He gives what i need, not always what i ask for. You can trust Him to do the same for you…and more often than not, what He gives far exceeds your wildest imaginations. 


with love, Mom
