Today has been an especially difficult day. Not for myself so much as it was for my husband.
When he finally got home tonight, after yet another 12-hour long day, he felt so defeated, so downcast...it nearly broke my heart.
My eternal optimist. My can-do guy. The one who never gives up, who never quits.
He was almost ready to throw in the towel.
I can't pretend to know why everything in our lives has been so hard lately. I don't know when or how it's ever going to get any better.
But God does.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." -Jeremiah 29:11
And I'm so, so thankful for that.
