Perspective

...The sufferings of this present time
are not worthy to be compared
with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
-Romans 8:18

Gorgeous photograph. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, huh? And a verse like that is worth a thousand heart and soul cries. Behold... He makes all things new. :)

Great Scripture reminder, but I must say that in my "dark" days I somethings think, "Reveal, already!!" C

That is the only hope we can "truly" believe in! Thanks! This may just have become my new favorite scripture verse.

Brin, I have been away from blogging for a while and have returned refreshed... only to find out that you've moved! I pray that your move has been smooth. I have enjoyed reading back over your posts and catching up. So sorry about your grandfather, but I appreciate your testimony to God's faithfulness. I love the quotes you share, too.

Blessings,
Christi

Brin, I so admire you. I am quite a bit older than you are but when I read your blog, I can totally understand the things you are going through. I envy your strenght in being able to pick up and move. I have had such a deep desire to move for so long, but I can not. My kids are here, my youngest is in 10th grade, it's a feeling of being trapped. I pray for your happiness and can't wait to see your new "Katrina" home built. I have been gone from blogging for several months, but when I logged on and saw what you were going through, I just had to send you a quick note to say that you have touched so many of us in "blogland" that I hope you find peace soon. I was so sad that you had lost your grandfather, you are strong my dear, and your faith is strong also. Take care, I will continue to read and live vicariously through you. You make me wish I was younger and braver blessings, Valerie
