Peace Like A River

Can I be one hundred percent honest with ya'll right now?  The real reason for my blogging absence is that this summer has been long and hard in so many.  It's a season of our lives that has just been down right yucky.  

Yet in the midst of these difficult times, we are learning to find joy in the moments, the small things in life.  Tonight, we needed to get out and clear our heads.  It's about a billion degrees outside, so we settled on the lake down from our house. 

Walking the trails and taking in the beauty of God's creation is so good for the soul.  Time and time again, I was reminded that the Lord gives us "Peace Like A River."

After the lake, we drove through the county and found a little park with access to the creek.  The shone just perfectly through the opening in the tree, which set the timbre for the evening as we watched the kids run, splash and play. 

I cherish these pictures so much because they remind me that no matter what circumstances we face, we can walk confidently knowing that the God who made the universe, holds our hand.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll.

Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

What a precious reminder of his love and provision!
