The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

What Are You Communicating?
I saw this young man in a wheelchair, he was in his teens. The family was standing in line in front of us. The young mans body was frail, spastic as the dad transferred him from his chair. I was struck by the tenderness of the teenage sister as she comforted him, trying to reduce his anxiety, putting his needs over her own.
I don't know that family, I have no idea if they were believers but they made an impression on me. God often uses the everyday things to speak to my heart and he did as I watched this family...my first thought..I need to ask the Lord to forgive me for my complaining...I can complain about the most ridiculous things... my other thought..... people are always watching whether we know it or not.
