God has been so good. Have you ever had a delayed response to a blessing or answered prayer? I have been praying for peace and praying for the ability to be happy through this. This has been my daily prayer for weeks. It wasn't until yesterday I found myself smiling, laughing, even dancing around simply happy that I realized...Oh my goodness Lord you Rock!!! He had been answered my prayer I just hadn't noticed. I am very grateful. But the thing about God is, He doesn't just give us what we want/ask for, He gives us what we need. And I am learning through this that I need happy days but I also need sad days. I grow in faith and in love through both. It is during these sad days that God wipes all of my tears. It is during these sad days that I am reminded that this is bigger than me. It is during these sad days that I am able to be vulnerable before God. And in doing so I come out of these days stronger. So thank God for sad days.

Despite the pain, I have not denied the words of the Holy One."
