We have been so surrounded by the support of our friends and family! Have I mentioned that before? :) Every day we check our mail and there are many many sweet cards, we check our email with encouraging emails and blog comments, we have phone calls and texts, flowers and plants being delivered to our house, meals being dropped off…I really am in awe of the people God has brought into our lives. I just wanted to pass on some scripture that others have shared with us. Was the whole Bible written for me?? :) Amazing how Scripture speaks to each of us in whatever situation we might be facing. I love how God gave us His word and uses it to comfort us and bring us healing.
Isaiah 26:3-4 (ICB) “You, Lord, give true peace. You give peace to those who depend on you. You give peace to those who trust you. So, trust the Lord always. Trust the Lord because he is our Rock forever.”

Psalm 34:18 “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Isaiah 55:8-9 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

Isaiah 40:18-31 “Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
