My updates may have been few, but it's because it is wisdom to be slow to speak, and worth waiting to choose my words wisely. This prayer is where I'm at in the midst of all that is going on. I pray it blesses you, and brings you the perspective of our God, who knows the end, from the beginning. Love you all more than you know.
"I asked for strength that I might achieve;
I was made weak that I might learn humbly to obey.
I asked for health that I might do greater things;
I was given infirmity that I might do better things.
I asked for riches that I might be happy;
I was given poverty that I might be wise.
I asked for power that I might have the praise of men;
I was given weakness that I might feel the need of God.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life;
I was given life that I might enjoy all things.
I got nothing that I had asked for, but everything that I had hoped for.
Almost despite myself my unspoken prayers were answered;
I am, among all men, most richly blessed."
Prayer of the Unknown Soldier
