Never know when the "crazies" are coming...

... but they seem to have found my household again.  Isn't it good to know that God already knew what was about to happen, and prepared my heart and soul with such peace.  I know that God always has His "eyes" on me.  Nothing happens outside of His plan for my life. 

I have been reading a book called Warrior Chicks the past few weeks.  Little did I know that the message of that book was working inside of me, preparing for another small storm to come in my life.  My husband is an amazing man, but he has lived for years in severe pain.  There is never a moment when he doesn't hurt to some degree.  The past year has been the worst we have faced together yet!  So surgery was done on his back this week. 

I am not a "panic" type person anyway.  I'm thankful that I have strength, that strength comes from my Savior.  But when someone you know and love is going through the "fire", then strength is always needed in a extra measure.  I'm so amazed that God prepares our way, working in us, moving us, growing us... even though we do not know why.

There is an old song that I still hear in my heart when troubles and trials come... and it is just perfect for these days I'm in the middle of.

His strength is perfect, when our strength is gone.
He'll carry us when we can not carry on. 
Raised in His power, the weak become strong. 
His strength is perfect.
