We Are Blessed
During our walk along this rocky road, Gorman and I have been amazed and blessed by all the wonderful friends who have cared for us, prayed for us and reached out to us in so many special ways but this most recent act of love was truly amazing. A dear friend was inspired to have this painting done for us. It is so beautiful in and of itself but this is what she wrote on the accompanying card:
“If colors could convey the essence of you as you walk together along our earthly path, my vision is, amber tones – your unconditional, fervent love and devotion for each other, golden hues symbolizing your faith, emerald colors framing your strength, crimson tones representing your courage, amethyst shades reflecting your hope, periwinkle hues- your exemplary spirit, fireflies on the periphery representing friends whose hearts reach out and lift up prayers for you, and, of course, the light surrounding you is God”. I began to cry again just typing this.
For anyone who is reading this, I do hope that if you get to that rough patch in your road you will have this same comfort and blessing of good friends. God does provide. He doesn’t always give us everything we want or ask for but He blesses us abundantly, in ways we never imagined.
