Yes, I did taste! I leaned on Him! I continue to learn to lean on my loving friends and family – those He placed in my path for such a time as this. I now realize that those months spending – sometimes literally all day – in His Word as we prepared to leave Okinawa were part of the preparation for such a time as this.
Indeed, this past year I was blessed as I took refuge in Him. What choice did I have? I gladly took refuge in Him! He’s all I know. He’s proven His steadfastness, love, comfort, strength, grace, mercy, (did I mention love?), and wisdom over and over. Who else would I turn to, but Him? Him! My loving Father, my Comfort, my Strength! By the way, He’s all these to you as well.
Here's a picture of a couple of Christmas gifts I made for my grandbabies. On my husband's request, I'm making another one for our youngest grandbaby. When he saw his brother's and sister's, he hugged it deeply. So, he gets one, too!
