Remembering April 27th, 2011
Now, I must tell you that I can't fathom WHY Tom purchased a new jack. We were trying to save money and we DID NOT need a new jack. We already had several. My husband didn't know we were going to need a new jack. But God knew. And even though Tom had no idea what was soon to come, the purchase he made was used to bless his family.
I can't tell you what a comfort that is. And there are so many others which come to mind.
We're reminded in John 14, "Let not your heart be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me." But it's hard to choose to not let our hearts be troubled. Difficult things happen. Storms of various kinds are experienced by all. Tragedies, such as those most recently, seem to come frequently.
But we reach for the hope...knowing He's really the One holding on to us. And we know that our great God works all things together for good... and that He leads His children along...EVEN WHEN WE DON'T KNOW IT'S HAPPENING. Like when purchasing a jack we don't *need.*
And finally, in summing up, we still want to keep alive Tom's memory in our hearts and minds. And we want to continue to honor the legacy he left of serving the Lord from a heart very grateful to God for all he'd been given and forgiven. And we desire to be faithful in telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord. And of how He continues to lead His children along.
And once again, we are also very grateful for you all. For your prayers and kind expressions and for the gift of friendship and family.
God bless you!
The Lee Family
