We are still in the middle of our storm. The boat is shaking. The wind is howling. And I am still choosing to trust. But it’s not always an easy choice. There are times I have to sit still and will myself to choose trust over fear. It would be so much easier if I could just get a glimpse of the big picture. The future plans God has for us. I guess then it wouldn’t be faith.
So today, I tried hard to write about gratitude. I know there are a million wonderful things in our life that I am grateful for. But when that wind is blowing and shaking the walls around me, it’s hard to focus on them. So I attempted this post at least 8 times today.
And then she smiled at me.
That big, real, all the way to her eyes and down to her toes smile. The one that will probably always stop me in my tracks. The one that can light up any room and can bring sunshine to the cloudiest day.
I sang “You are My Sunshine” to her all the time while I was pregnant. I had no idea how true that would be.
