Small Successes~June 10, 2010

FaithButton

We are currently going through a very trying time. The lot where we were planning to build our house is unacceptable for building without some massive remediation. We're not even sure the remediation will work at this point, but it is too late into the process to turn back now. We have to try. Something that stuck with me while standing at the lot receiving this news was the number of butterflies fluttering around and one even landed on me. There isn't a flower anywhere near the lot and yet butterflies were fluttering all around us. We have a massive hole in the ground, with dirt piles everywhere and these creatures still visited. I'm taking it as a sign that new life can begin there. What do you think?

This week's small successes:

1. I didn't totally lose it when the devestating news was given to me. I stayed strong and kept my faith in the Lord that this too shall be resolved.

2. I've cooked dinner every night this week for the family. (I love summer vacation!)

3. I took time to read a novel.

Blessings and peace,

Lisa

I would definitely take that as a good sign.
Hang in there.

This is my first visit to your blog. I love it! Your faith in Christ and his plan while going through difficulty are inspiring. Butterflies are a sign of redemption. Hang in there. I can't wait to see what God has in store for you and your family.
