The Ebe and Flow of the Ocean

Sadness like happiness is a part of life....It's like the ocean coming forth with its gifts and then receeding to take what it chooses..... Acceptance of this ebe and flow and to choose to accept that God is in control of all things brings the necessary grace to be at peace during all the events of life......

My children's mother in law  (my daughter and son married a brother and sister)  was diagnosed with throat cancer last August and she has been living with both children during her treatments.
The daughter of a good friend of mine has had to return home from the mission field because she has breast cancer.  She has three young children.
A gal I have known for many years, even though not a close friend, died this week from ovarian cancer after battling it for only three months...She was in her fifties.......
I received a phone call on Monday night saying a friend of mine has breast cancer and she may be looking at a double masceptamy......

I know God is in control...I hang on to that fact..and I know too He says He will never leave you or forsake you...and He promises to give us all we need and strength for every situation....so now that it seems the ocean is receeding I know that God will cause it to come forth again and bring all its gifts and blessings.....He is truly our rock in times of trouble.....I am thankful for His Word and  for His presence...


Hugs and Blessings,
Nancy
