The day started out beautifully. Coffee with a trusted friend with whom my man and I could share our recent personal angst and our belief for God to bring about the best in spite of pieces of our life being messy and uncomfortable. Trusted friend was supportive and offered new insight, giving us another opportunity to be grateful for the unlikeable situation that is causing us to expand our trust in Jesus and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

The day went on and another arrow pierced our souls. Well, maybe not our souls but there was definitely some surface hurt, some defensiveness, and a wanting to hurt back.

Instead we were gifted with a restful, blessed, fun evening. Just the two of us. And I thank Jesus. For knowing what today would bring and providing for mental and spiritual restoration throughout the day.

Hold onto this verse today and know that any seeming darkness is fleeting.

I am the Light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life. John 8:12
