What happened to the last two weeks? Plenty. I'm sorry I have neglected my blog, but members of my family have been going through a crisis, and I have had to put aside my regular schedule and help. I'm not free to go into details, but through this experience I have learned a great deal by watching people I love weather a storm with unfailing courage.
Courage . . .
We've all heard the word and many times we think of warriors facing a foreboding enemy. They have great courage. In the last few weeks I've seen another side of courage. I've seen people thrown into the pit of despair. I was with them as they cried and wondered why things happened the way they did. I was with them as they searched for answers, and I so wanted to tell them what was in my heart, but the decision they had to make would be with them for the rest of their lives. That decision had to come from them. They went through fire and came through it with their heads held high. They faced this challenge with incredible courage.
Courage . . .
I think we are all courageous warriors at different times in our lives. And I am so grateful for faith in God and His plan for us. If we let Him, He gives us courage to face the storms.
I'm sure there have been times when you have witnessed unassuming people show incredible courage. What are your thoughts regarding courage?
