Or is more snow falling?
Maybe you can't see the stars for the clouds at night.
Well, stay tuned for the quote at the end...
I'm linking up with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for Friday's Fave Five, where we share our favorites from the past week.
This week's blessings for me:
1. Two words – SPRING BREAK! Oh, yes, it’s time...at 3:00 today. Looking forward to sleeping in and time to write and read…and time to shop for a mother of the groom dress.
2. A concert. My sweet hubby surprised me with tickets for a concert tonight—date night. Looking forward to it!
3. A guest post on parentingteens.com. My post was live yesterday, and it looks like I’ll have another next week. Read up on families and conflict and respect here!
4. Bringing sunlight into the dark. We were in the midst of dark days a year ago, when our son was the victim of a terrible auto accident and spent three months in a wheelchair. Hardship changes you, teaches you. My hope in the middle of that was that I could take its lessons back into the everyday. I have a friend going through some hard times, and she says sharing my experience from a year ago has helped her. It’s great to see how God redeems our pain and uses it.
5. A quote:
“The darker the night, the brighter the stars. The deeper the grief, the closer is God!” (Fyodor Dostoyevsky)
I can attest to this, and I'm sure our son Andrew could, too. (I have to credit the quote to him. He found it!) We’ve seen some bright stars in the past year, and at the moment, the sun is shining through.
And the best part? Sun or stars, He’s by our side.
