Mila’s favourite story to read at the moment is The Three Bears, every time when we get to the page where baby bear discovers his chair has been broken she exclaims “oh dear…broken! Oh no baby bear”.
I am feeling very thankful that we have not had to face too many broken things during the earthquakes and aftershocks over the last few days. The images and stories emerging of the damage and destruction caused up and down our country is truly heartbreaking.
I am reminded in times like this where there can be so much uncertainty and fear, that there are always things to be thankful for. Natural disasters like this certainly encourage us to draw closer to the ones we love. Life is so precious and should never be taken for granted.
‘Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.’ Psalm 30:5
My prayer is that where so many people are experiencing worry, uncertainly, brokenness and fear, it will be replaced with hope and peace, that unexplainable peace that only comes from God. I hope you know that no mater what night you are facing at the moment, no mater how dark it may seem, there will always be hope, you can be certain there will always a dawn. Joy will come in the morning.
