Shadows

If God really works in everything — then why don’t we thank Him for everything?”
That was the first line on Ann's blog post, go here and be thankful!

"I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken."    Psalm 16:8

"Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings."   Psalm 17:8

Shadows can be scary when we don't know the origin, but if you don't focus on the shadow, you see the sun, the Son, shining through.  He always does, even in hard times, especially in hard times.

My 8 month old nephew has been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes.  My sister and family had a scare when they saw the shadows fall last Friday, and, there will be a constant watch but, they did see the Son, as He showed up through doctors, specialists, PICU nurses, Godly, Christian nurses and were grateful for friends who loved and cared for the other children during hospital visits and overnight stays.  Grateful it could have been something worse, but even so, Thank You, Lord.  Continue to administer peace, grace, mercy, encouragement, that they still see You and Your goodness in ALL things.  Thank You for their faith and how they share it and their eucharisteos with the other children. 

        Bless them in their faithfulness to You in all things.

           See the shadows, See the Son.
