Day 1: I am thankful that I serve a loving and compassionate God. I haven't exactly had the best relationship with Him this year, but I know that He is still the same God that He was before Ian passed! There is an old poem about how a man had a dream and God was walking on the beach with him...and then the footprints became just one set when a "storm" came up and the man got angry at God and thought that He had deserted him but in reality God had carried him through it! It's an amazing (old) poem...I'll post it if I can find it. The poem is right though....when times get rough, we turn our backs on God thinking that He has forgotten us, but the reality of it is He is holding us, cradling us even, in His arms.....waiting on us to come back to Him. So today and everyday I am thankful for God.
