So many times in life. 2 times, no, 3 times this past year since July. We are faced with inexplicable suffering that causes us to cry “Where’s the mercy, Lord?”

A grandmother who fought and fought with cancer and who fought a hard battle with pain and delirium during her last few days.

A family who lost their home and possessions in bad fires last summer. Then wrecked a car. Then lost a job. Then tragically, suddenly, unexpectedly lost their wife and mother, with no cause of death.

Honestly, I know deep in my heart that God is good always. However, sometimes the trials of this world make me ask Him where He is, where His mercy is.

The Appalachian Trail at Max Patch Bald, a bald mountain on the North Carolina-Tennessee border in Madison County, North Carolina and Cocke County, Tennessee. It is a major landmark along the Tennessee/North Carolina section of the Trail, although its summit is located in North Carolina. It’s known for the 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains - the Bald Mountains in the immediate vicinity, the Unakas to the north, the Great Smokies to the south, and the Great Balsams and Black Mountains to the southeast.

I love this list! Very good to remember and keep on hand! “He is your compass!” is my favorite!

Sewing

Crocheting chains

Petting my dog

Brushing my horse

Making cinnamon rolls or a pie

Decorating a Christmas tree

Eating some toasted pecans

Drinking rich peppermint sipping cocoa

Cutting paper snowflakes

Making Christmas gifts for friends and loved ones
