Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

In Everything Give Thanks

In some ways it has been a tough summer and yet the Lord's goodness and mercy shine through. With death, heart abnormalities, hospitalization for an in-law family member, and other medical issues the simple day to day stuff seemed insignificant. And yet the toilet training, the school planning, cleaning, making meals and such had to continue.

It is great to be able to get away from the mundane and take a breather.

We still had much to be thankful for . . .
