And a good friend emailed yesterday to tell me her husband has advanced cancer and has only a short time to live.
And it snowed today.
So I'm kind of blue, kind of cranky, more than kind of heartsick for my friend.
Sometimes life just seems like one long uphill road on a mountain covered in fog. Thank God sometimes the sun breaks through. Thank God sometimes He breaks through and lets us know this isn't all there is. It's about so much more - it's like Mt. McKinley - you can live right beside it and only see the base most of the time. Then every once in a while the fog clears and you just can't stop looking up.
Lord, help me to keep looking up.
