|Anna reads a book while waiting for the retina specialist|
I've heard many wise mentors ask people, "So what has God been saying to you lately?" And because I've heard that question asked throughout the years, I've worked to listen carefully to what God is saying to me (just in case someone asks!---and besides, I want to know!!!). I had a lot of time to listen this morning, because at the crowded Eye Center at Hershey Medical Center, there is a lot of waiting time. (We arrived at 8:30 a.m. and left at noon---sometimes I've thought they should provide treadmills for patients and parents, so that we're not constantly sitting or making people nervous by walking around in small spaces!) A few things came to mind today. I recently heard or read that if we truly knew God and who He is, we would never need to fear anything at all. I was thinking about this before the eye exam, and that was a good thought to be meditating on. And the song in my head this morning (all morning---before and after) was Colton Dixon's song "Through All of It." I'll post a video below. And on the way home, on the radio, a song reminded me that "God is in control." He truly is our anchor---our steady rock, when the road gets a little bumpy.
I know so many people are praying for Anna and for us. Thank you!
