Deep Thoughts by Jacquie

Life is full of twists and turns. It never seems to quite be what you imagined it would be. Yet it always seems to turn out so much more perfect than you could have ever imagined for yourself. Yes, it's filled with more heartache, pain and trials than you would envision. But in return there are so many more tender mercies, blessings and miracles than you could ever create for yourself.

Over the last couple weeks I have been feeling overwhelmingly blessed for the life I have. Although I never imagined my life to be where it is today, I could never have put things together so perfectly. It stands as a testimony to me that there is a God. And he knows us more perfectly than we know ourselves. And in those perfect moments he sends tender mercies to remind us that He is there and His hand is in all things. And in those quiet moments when you realize you are standing directly where He wants you to be and everything around you is exactly as it should be, you can do nothing but weep and thank God for what you have.

Here's to another chapter in my life. I call it Hope.

Wow Jacquie! That is so in depth. You truly are blessed. And we are so blessed to have you as our daughter and are so proud of where you stand today.

Rick and Jenny Runyan said... should write a book someday, no joke! Well said, and so true!

Poulsen Family said...

I'm interested to hear some of those tender mercies. I tried calling you a couple of days ago, but no answer. Give me a call when you have a moment.
Btw- several people have been talking about how excited they are for sytycd. I am sad we won't be able to watch this season together :(
