This is how I've been feeling lately.....

"Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal." (2 Cor. 4:16-18 NKJV)

Have had lots of tough choices lately. This verse says it all for me. I do not put my hope in the things here on earth, but what is eternal. No matter how hard the decision, we will not lower our standards, we will not settle, will not sell our faith short. This shrivled up apple is forgotten... but our heavenly Father knows, sees and cares... even when everyone else has forgotten.

That was lovely. Your picture and verse put so much in perspective.
You bear the pains of growth so openly and well. Again I say..Wise woman you are. Not to mention that you are so creative, I love the places your brain goes.

I might print this off and stick it on my fridge.

Love, love, loved it.
