I believe the sentiment in the statement because I have lived it.
November has, historically, been a heavy hitter for me. In a November 20 years ago, I found out that my baby girl would not survive her February birth. In a November 10 years past, I was told that multiple sclerosis would be a constant companion. In both instances, God did not calm the storm...but He did hide me under the shadow of His wing, singing songs of deliverance over me ~Zephaniah 3:17~.
This November, as I contemplate Thanksgiving, I am overwhelmed with gratitude... for the promise that I will see Sara again, for the four blessings who call me mommy, for legs that still walk and eyes that still see.
Are you feeling thankful today?
