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.

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
