This morning the prayer of my heart was "Your grace Lord and courage to get through this day."
Yesterday was a day that passed in a daze and many tears.
Our Mission family are devastated by what happened.
The ones that were saved from the sea and survived are numb.
Seeing and hearing the news...all twisted....on the radio and television....heart breaking.
....and in this I am searching for joy and counting gifts that will number at least 1000 this year.
#1 ~ My first gift of the Joy Dare. A photo sent to me by an old school friend. A photo taken by her daughter as the sun came up on 2014. On the beach where the two young men drowned just a few hours later. Thank you Lord for the beauty of yesterday morning.
#2 ~ The joy of knowing that both Keanan and Ockert were sons of the Most High God and that they are now with Him.
#3 ~ Experiencing the love and care of friends who have gathered around us in comfort and prayer.
#4 ~ Knowing that Jesus flattens that mountain before you with His Grace: The Lord will Provide. With enough strength. With enough wisdom. With More Than Enough of Himself.
We continue to pray that Ockert's body will be recovered and provide the much needed closure.
