Random Act of Kindness

I received this card in the mail yesterday from my aunt in Indiana.  It said on the outside "Hello" and then inside "hope you know how often we think of you and pray for you".   I only see my aunt & uncle about once every two years, so I'm not as close to them as I'd like to be but I just wanted to say that this random act of kindness really put a smile on my face.  Sometimes just knowing someone is thinking about you and praying for you can make all the difference in the world.   My aunt wrote in the card that she was thinking about me as she studied Luke 1 & 2, how God blessed Elizabeth with child when she didn't think it was possible.  She wrote that God's plans are perfect and best but it is hard sometimes waiting for his perfect timing.  I have to admit I've been a bit mad at God lately.  I think that is a normal feeling and all children get mad at their parents from time to time.  I wish I could look into the future and know what God's plan for my life are.  The waiting is so hard and I still have 3 longs months to endure.

Thanks Melva & Darrel for the beautiful and thoughtful card.  It really meant a lot to me at this dark time in my life.

  1. I completely know what you mean. After my last loss I fell away from the church for months. I was angry at God. I couldn't understand why so many bad thins keep happening to good people. It takes time to begin to heal. Eventually I turned back to prayer. I hope that you will be able to too.

    And by the way, I just noticed that you got married in the Bahamas too. My husband and I got married last August at the Sheraton Cable Beach, by Paradise Island.
