He Will Make the Flowers Bloom!

The sun will shine again, the flowers will bloom again, the trees will have leaves again, the sun will shine again! 

This last year and specifically the last 6 months have been very hard on our family.  My step-father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, Charlie was sick for about 3 months with an infection in his lungs.  With Charlie sick we had a very limited income.  I wondered if the flowers would ever bloom again.  It seemed like depression was a very close friend but I had to stay positive.  I couldn't let this storm rock my world.  Charlie, who is always positive, has showed signs of depression too.  

The last month though has been better.  Charlie is almost working full-time again.  He is up to about 85% capacity.  I can still see that he has trouble breathing from time to time but not anything like the way he was before!  I can see a brighter day in our life.  As I look out my window this morning I can see that the leaves on the trees are beginning to appear, the dandelions are abundant in my yard, and the tulips are blooming!  God is always good!  

Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
