TOUGH QUESTIONS...Simple answers

          WITHOUT
                              
          THE RAIN

      THERE WOULD

            BE NO

          RAINBOW

What I know for sure is that I am not a wimp.
What I know for sure is that God does not give us more than we can handle.
What I know for sure is that I have always lived my life with courage and perseverance.
I am NOT a quitter.

Yet, what I also know is that there are seasons where the storms are abundant and the rain keeps falling. This is, literally and figuratively, one of those seasons.

At the end of a very challenging school year, and facing some daunting personal challenges, I have been asking myself lots of tough questions.

Here is a sample of one of my June journal entries...

"Recently, it hasn't been easy.
Recently, I have been in the business of having hard talks and setting hard boundaries.
Recently, I have had a heavy heart.

Recently, I asked Bert

"Why don't you think God asked someone else to do this
Ya know, like someone younger, or smarter, or  with more endurance
for really hard decisions? Why does it have to be so hard?
Why us?"

Bert's answer?

"God asked and we said YES."

I love it when it all boils down to one simple answer.

I like the hard questions and I am glad you have Bert there with the simple answers to the complex questions.
