All is Well

I have so avoided posting this week because, well....

Life has been a little "strange" this week and quite frankly...I haven't had the energy to recount all the crazy stuff! By crazy I mean crazy. Wacked Out. Strange stuff.

Plus, I'm getting ready to head to Memphis for Living Proof Live. ;) We are thrilled that we have some family here to visit with Chad and the girls for the weekend. I know he's glad for the company.

I have to say. With all the out of control wild stuff going on around here, God has been faithful. He has had me in 2 Kings 4 all week. In my ESV translation around verse 23 the Shummanite woman makes a comment that "all is well".

She was living a parent's worst nightmare and she had enough faith to say all is well.

Let me tell you.

What we have been living this week is nothing in comparison. NOTHING. And yet, I have been on the verge of pouting and sulking and feeling sorry for myself.

However,

All is well.

My children are healthy. There is food in our pantry. We have clothes, shoes and a warm home.

I have a husband that loves me and works hard so that I can be at home with these children God has given us.

All is well.

I'm a daughter of the King of Kings and Lords of Lords and He. HE is my everything.

All is well.
