We have shared many times how God has sustained us and upheld us in this time.  We have known the peace that passes understanding in astonishing ways.  I read a bit more tonight, to see how Laura Story (the writer and singer of the song Blessings) has faced the "unasked for" in her life.  Her story resonates with us.  She has learned that:
"There is a blessedness that comes through waiting on the Lord.  There is an intimacy in our walk with the Lord that comes through walking through that valley.  There is a reliance on His Word that we only know when everything else in life fades away."
So what if Your blessings come through raindrops?
What if Your healing comes through tears?
What if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You're near?
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise?
