...and, ultimately, THAT would be what I pray would come of this "test" that is now a part of my every day . . . that God WILL use it for HIS glory and I will be a TESTIMONY for him.
Today, a student returned to school after losing her 22 year old brother over the weekend. She is in Tessa's grade and they ran cross-country together through their high school years. Her dad and I graduated together. When she got to school, we held each other and I told her "I know" . . . I don't "know" her exact pain - it's different for each and every person, yet, I do "know" more than many others do . . . please pray for Brook and her family through the rest of this difficult week . . . services will be held on Friday.
After school/work today, I went to the Town Hall to set up for the election next week and "test" the equipment. The last election I set up for was held November 8. I wasn't there. I was at the funeral home that day. The last election I set up for, Rick surprised me at the hall and helped me set up. Another "bittersweet" day - even in setting up for an election, another reminder of the crazy changes that have taken place. Yet, God is the same yesterday (or many yesterday's ago, like the day I set up the last election), TODAY (that one's obvious, He makes His presence KNOWN every day) and TOMOROW . . . So I don't have to fear tomorrow, because HE IS ALREADY THERE!
