Closing the Book

Thank you all who have been praying for our family as we go through the process of shutting down our family business, Wellspring Christian Resources. This has definitely been an emotional roller coaster, but when I close my eyes on the loop-the-loops that scare me half to death, these thoughts give me hope to hold on:

1) Nothing can happen beyond the grasp of the hands of the Almighty, All-knowing God of the Universe - the very God who loves us, and gave His Son to make us joint heirs of riches worth more than anything this world can offer. Whatever He allows is ultimately for His glory and our good, and nothing can separate us from His love.

2) We have been so blessed with loving, faithful friends. Friends that come to the store to do what they can, friends who's hearts are aching with us, friends who are faithfully speaking with our Father in our behalf. Friends that will still be there for us even when it feels like everything else has fallen apart. And friends that remind us that our God will still be there - infinitely more faithfully than they can be. My knuckles are white from holding on to Him.
