As I was driving a couple of days ago, I had to stop and write down the quote I read on a church sign before I forgot it:
"Are you making a living, or making a life?"
This describes my father-in-law so well. His priority was making a life, living a life of truth and love that everyone felt in his presence.Holding Hope in Florida last year as she looks for yet another Oreo.
I've been thinking a lot about Romans 8:28 -
"And we know that in ALL THINGS God works for the GOOD of those who love him..."
And I've been re-evaluating my definition of "good". Good is whatever glorifies God. Good is how the story finally ends when we are done with this earth, these bodies. Good is not whatever keeps my happy little life running smoothly...it's God proving himself faithful over and over and over again.
