Five years ago today I was up at 4 a.m. I was wearing a maternity jean jumper that had seen some serious wear. I was fighting heart burn and pregnancy exhaustion. I was worried about my husband, but calm in the peace that only God can give. And I was embarking on one of the most horrendous weeks of my life.
Today, I woke up a little bit before 7. I’m rested, I’m wearing some khaki pants that make me look slim and trim, and I’m healthy and fit although sporting a few new gray hairs. I have a few small worries for the future (absolutely none about Dan =}), but am still calm in the peace that only God can give. And just because that was a horrible week five years ago, doesn’t mean that this one will be.
Things change, but I find that my God still hasn’t. I can rest just as safely in His love today as I could five years ago, and I know that He will care for me no matter what this week may bring.
