But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was on him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 55:3
Well, my last blog was talking about spring cleaning, and donating things. Have you ever accidentally donated something that was NOT intended to be donated? Even worse---it was something special to your child? (GULP) Well....tis with a sigh, a HUGE sigh that I write tonight's post.

What a way to always REMEMBER this lesson.
As far as the grief my daughter feels (and we too feel for her) I can thank God for understanding how we feel, and I can trust that as HER Heavenly Father, He will work this all out for her good...may He draw her closer to Himself, and reveal to her the very anguish He feels when He searches the world over for a heart that's willing to trust Him. "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost." Luke 19:10 May this cause her (and all of us) to appreciate what He has done for all of mankind, right down to the personal level~ for you and for me!
|He's reaching out to you. |

I'm not sure what I'll find at the thrift store tomorrow....but the lesson that has already been found through this is much more valuable than any lost bag of treasured keepsakes---and this is coming from a "sentimental mom of two dear children."
