Just for you. And you.

I received a forwarded email earlier this morning, one with the dreaded instructions to pass it to a number of people and not to break it. My friends and I frown on those forwards even though we do send them on occasion. I'm not forwarding this though - instead I'm leaving it here for you. I hope you pause a moment to read and reflect upon the words. This is the second time I've posted this on my site, but if ever something were a candidate for repeating, perhaps it is this.

To get something you never had, you have to do something you've never done. When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence: The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

And that, my friends, is my post for today.

There's a song that used to really choke me up, especially when I had cancer. It had a lyric in it about how God gives and takes away. Naturally, I didn't understand how that was a good thing, until I had cancer.

It's a very sweet thing to pass on...one I needed today.
