I did not sleep well last night, and I woke up early this morning thinking of my Mary Anna. Usually when this happens, I lay in bed and look through her pictures. I found this one, and I hadn’t really seen it before, because it was so dark that you could not tell what the picture was, so I lightened it and it made me smile through my tears.
Mary Anna loved to hold our fingers. She would squeeze them really really tight.
I love seeing her sweet little shoulder snuggled up to mine and her tiny finger holding onto mine. It makes me so happy to be her mommy. I came downstairs to read a little, and at the end of my devotional it said to read Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Then it said to rewrite it your own words, so I wrote:
ALL things work for my good.
It’s just what I needed to hear this morning. Not all things are good or easy or make a lick of sense, but for those who love Him, all things work together for good. For my good. And for that I am thankful.
