A morning for memories

Just a few (definitely caffeinated) thoughts as I sit down with a second cup about to pay some bills. Hearing the kids music from their show in the background. Seeing the overcast cool day out the window. Definitely grateful for the many blessings in this life. But memories popping up on FB combined with the Fall temperatures, I can't help but think about our trip to Scotland 4 years ago this week. Such an amazing experience!! 

One day we took a train, and took this photo of the Isle of Skye. (Next time we must go to the island!) We didn't know about a month after our return we would lose an early pregnancy. We still fondly talk about our "Scottish baby" (sweet Skye) who is now with Jesus.
We can never understand why things go the way they do. But I trust Jesus! He always has a plan. 
I want to get this scripture framed soon so I can see it every day. 
II Corinthians 4:7-9
"We now have this light shining in our hearts, but we ourselves are like fragile clay jars containing this great treasure. This makes it clear that our great POWER is from God, not from ourselves. 
We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed. We are perplexed, but not driven to despair. We are hunted down, but never abandoned by God. We get knocked down, but we are not destroyed."

Be encouraged, friends. I am! We have this great Hope!
