My Dad has 13 lumps growing.
My Cat is sick.
There is no comparison.
I don't think the vet understood when I said our cat wasn't high on the priority list.
Nothing surprises our God.
Again there is no comparison.
These light and momentary afflictions.
That is what they are.
Light and Momentary.
And yet there is a lump in my throat.
A lump.
I am thankful for my Dad.
What a treasure he is to me.
The kindness of the Lord to give him to me as my Dad.
I don't deserve him.
I don't deserve any precious gift.
Jesus.  You are most precious. Of all gifts. Most precious.
Thank you for life.
Ever..... lasting.

If the LORD truly is God, then follow Him.  
                                                                                             In All.
Is there anything I should holdonto?
                                         Any hope outside of Him?
                                           Any hurt?
Why do we        ...hesitate?
          Why do we l
We do not know Him as we ought.
We have not truly seen Him as we should.
Because if we know Him, even a little, we love Him;
                                                we can only trust Him.
It must be that I forget.
My choice to look away.
And loose sight.
                                  I do know You,
                                    I do love You,
                                    I do trust You.   More.
But I forget.
Forgive my unbelief, Lord.  It is unbelief.

You are Faithful.  You are True.  I am Yours.
