Oh, wow. This week has been crazy, and this weekend promises to be even crazier. In the next two days, we have a trip to the Math Olympics, a gala, one women’s conference, at least SIX games (hello, tourney season!), 2 shifts of work for my favorite teenager, and whatever I am forgetting. (Because I am sure I am forgetting SOMETHING) I don’t think I fully realized how crazy things can get when everyone gets to a certain age in your crew. Talk about bananas.
I debated how I wanted to honor Manda on here and this week, and I think I landed on this. First, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that if you would like to contribute towards the Gala that we are having this evening, you can here. I know that quite a few of you felt a connection to her even if it was over the internet ( I get this, because I feel the same about YOU GUYS!), so I always want to give you an opportunity to show your support if you feel lead to do so. Thank you for that. XO
Also, since Manda worked so hard to keep God on the throne..above cancer, above fear and seeing how much that has blessed so many people….I thought I would open up the comments so you can share how God was WITH YOU and on the THRONE….ABOVE the hard parts of your own life…
I’ll go first: my God (that’s who He is) remains ON THE THRONE and is always working. He leads me and our family during a season of uncertainty that has been peppered by job loss, family struggles, and, during the process, stretches us to be more like Him. He draws out Faith in all of us that is stronger than before…He provides, and He shows us the beauty in the hard moments. It’s my hope that someone sees what happens in our life, and it becomes a tangible example of our loving Father to them. The glory and victory belongs to Him.
Now, share your Hope below. Happy Friday, y’all! XOXO Narci
