God is in control

My youngest daughter just finished off her last school exams ever! My eldest daughter is getting married in two weeks time. With the good news comes the bad news. My Dad is very ill and we don't know how much longer we will have him with us and if he is even going to make it to the wedding.
God remains in control. He is before things, and in Him all things hold together. Collosians 1:17.
I shall hold onto His promises. He is eternal. I will place my entire trust and faith in the living Christ. I will survive! Yes Lord, the workmanship of Your creation bears testimony to Your great glory. Amen


  1. Life can be a rollercoaster at times, can't it?
    I'm sad for you about your father: losing a parent is hard.
    I do hope he can make it to the wedding for everyone's sake. I'm sure he is hoping that too.

    Exciting about the having your daughter finish school; they seem to grow up overnight once that happens!
    Also about the wedding: fabulous!
    I'm amazed you found the time to post at all.

    But yes, in the rollercoaster, the Lord is the steady secure stable centre. And yes, He holds all things together: even us, when we feel we might fly into a thousand pieces. X

  2. Trusting in the Lord brings great peace. We are so fortunate we have such a God as He.

  3. Threading through all of it--the grieving, the pride, the joy, the uncertainty--is a family's God-given love. Keep loving, sister.
