I am blessed.

I know in some ways it may surprise you to hear me say that, but itís true.

Circumstances included.

I know Love.

And, today there are many who do not know Love or love. And, Iím blessed because I know both.

This morning, on my way to work, I cried. I know. Youíve heard that before; I guess because in my car, alone, I can let it all hang out there for only Love to see.

Anyway, I cried.

I was overwhelmed with Love.

Truth isÖ God is good. All the time. No matter the circumstances. No matter the storm.

Letís face it. Going through this journey as a couple, Danny and I have experienced a deeper level of intimacy than most. There are things Iíve had to help Danny with that most couples donít even talk about.

But, I am humbled because I have known real love; love as an action. Loving words with no loving actions are dead.

I was Dannyís hands, his feet, and his voice. I was his memory, his constant, his reason (shared by Corbin, of course). I was those things only because Love gave me what I needed to be those things and He still does.

Our love is built on something greater than the troubles of this life; God is the foundation.

As Christians, we can struggle with the choice of drowning in the sea of our emotions or standing on the Rock, the Promise, the Starting Point.

God is good. All the time.

It is His nature, His being. He is.

Our circumstances donít change that. Our understanding is not His knowledge.

Itís hard. There are many times, I roll over our life and wonder what the plan is. How can it be taking so long to come to fruition? What is left to learn? Teach me already!

But, no matter how I feel, no matter how my heart hurts, no matter how many tears I cry, what I know to be true is what anchors me.

God is good. All the time.

He has never failed me. Never.

Though the waves crash over me and the battle wages around me, and there are times I want to lay down my sword, I know He is able to hold me up.

I am not alone.

I am not the only warrior.

He has already won.

We are overcomers.

There are times when itís easy to get overwhelmed. Honestly, I have a hard time sometimes just throwing my hands in the air and the stress off my shoulders. Itís a lot. I wear many hats and really Iíd like to get the opportunity to burn many of them.

But, you know what? God gave me those hats.

He gave me the stuff I need to get through this time. He made me capable through Him. And because of that, I know He loves me. He sees me. He hears me. He is with me.

God is good. All the time.

I choose to believe. Every day. Every moment. I choose Him.

God is good. All the time.
