the day after i wrote my "perspective" post, i read this...
“From where we stand, we can’t see whether it’s something’s good or bad. All we can see is that God’s sovereign and He is always good, working all things for good.”
"How can I really see if a seeming disaster or dilemma, is actually dire?
My focus need only be on Him, to only faithfully see His Word, to wholly obey. Therein is the tree of life."
-quotes from an awesome blog...
