After we found out a family tragedy occurred late last week there was no second thought about dropping everything and driving up to Indiana. We scrambled to figure logistics out and as He always faithfully does, God provided everything we needed so we could make the trip.
It was a weekend full of bold emotion, kind of like Olivia’s beautiful birthday cake:
It was interesting how things timed out – Olivia’s 10th birthday party, our wedding anniversary, and a funeral all in one weekend.
It was a heavy but happy weekend and it made me realize the value of coming together as a family and community. Being around the kids at Olivia’s party was also a great reminder to enjoy the present moment:
Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes. Matthew 6:34 (MSG)
