Happy

Lately I'm just so full of happy that I don't know what to do with it all.

We made it.

I stare at those three words and my eyes fill with tears.

We have had such a difficult year and a half. I haven't shared a fraction of how hard it has been because I didn't want to complain and be ungrateful for what we did have.

But it was hard. Heartbreaking. Scary. Exhausting. I felt forgotten and unloved by God. My gratitude journal went from things I was thankful for, to prayers from the bottom of my terrified and broken heart. I held on to my faith by my fingertips, begging God to show me He was there.

And here we are on the other side.

We made it.

I am amazed by how God has changed our circumstances. He didn't just answer my prayers. He ANSWERED MY PRAYERS. Exceeded them. He is who He says He is, and He loves just as He says He loves.

Oh, so full of happy. He is good. He is good.

How do I thank you for the support you have given me during this season? How do I express to you how deeply your words have impacted me? How do I make you understand how thankful I am for the prayers you said on our behalf when I was too broken to pray?

Thank you isn't enough. It's not. But it's all I have.

Thank you, sweet friends.
