It’s been a very tough week for our household. I’ve spend about three weeks on a partial fast. This was to help me find peace with the election whichever way it would go and now in retrospect I’m so very glad I did that. I think we often get the impression that prayer is about getting what you want but I don’t believe that at all. I think it’s fine to make requests to God but then faith gets involved where we trust God to answer as He sees fit. I broke my fast to land right in the middle of the worst flu I’ve experienced in a very long time. This swept through our house like the black plague of old leaving me now still weakened and not at all completely recovered. What’s my point in all this? Well, bottom line is in spite of it all I feel peace. This must be the peace that passes all understanding…certainly mine because I don’t understand at all. Right now we’ve got a winter storm watch and looking at the sky I can really believe it. It’s windy and icy cold and I just don’t feel well enough to take more pictures so I hope this will suffice for now. Let not your hearts be troubled. Blessings to you all.
