|We found ourselves on a very rough road! It was full of potholes, ruts, and turns. It was a difficult road to walk down until I realized that we weren't alone, and that there was a way through.|
|Talk about hairpin turns!|
It was the road less traveled, and we weren't there by choice. Many times I wanted to turn around and go back, but it was a one-way road. This wasn't the way it was supposed to be. All my expectations, all my assumptions, were so mistaken. How could I have been so wrong? How were we ever going to make it?
I kept falling in all the potholes. I kept getting stuck in all the ruts. With every curve I found myself flat on my face again, staring at nothing but asphalt. Some of the holes were really deep, and I didn't think we could climb out. I thought we might get stuck there forever until...I decided to look up, and there He was, arms wide open, waiting to help us out of that hole. He walked the rest of the way with us. He pointed out every pitfall and turn. If we fell down, He helped us up, and we kept walking.
|God knows ALL the curves!|
We can't see all the way to the end. It's likely that there will be some twists and turns along this road too, but we aren't alone. He is still with us, and so we journey on. There are many others on the road with us too. They welcome us, and they are happy that we are walking with them.

Special Note: Tomorrow is the big day! Christopher's feeding tubes are coming out. Please help us pray that the holes that have been in for 17 years will close up on their own and not require surgery.
