Quotidian: daily, usual, or customary;everyday; ordinary; commonplace.
This past week has been anything but usual or commonplace.
In the space of five days, we attended two funerals,
celebrated Emma's birthday, and participated in a family wedding.
It was an incredible week full of all the emotions.
My friend's daughter's funeral took place just two hours
before our niece's wedding. These two girls share the same
first name and have birthdays almost exactly one year apart.
The Lord is gracious and daily gives strength. His mercies are new every morning.
Our Saviour's ways are perfect and His dealings with His people are always best.
Though at times the path may be painful, we rest our hearts in His Sovereign Plan.
"Rejoice with them that do rejoice,
and weep with them that weep." Romans 12:15

May the Lord bless you with His peace
and presence now and always. And, may you know
His loving hand to be upon you. Forever.
