~Not Fair~

Sometimes life hurts.  Sometimes it isn't fair.  Sometimes it's just really really bad.  Things happen that we don't like.  We have to deal with things we'd rather not deal with.  We have trials.  We have pain.
Sometimes we just WANT TO SCREAM AT THE UNFAIRNESS OF IT ALL!

And still.  GOD IS FAITHFUL.  Even when it hurts.  Even when the tears run freely.  Even when it feels like nothing will ever be right again.  Even when we face losing someone or something we love.
God is still on His throne.  He still has a plan.  He knew these things would happen before we were even born.  And His plan will bring good, not evil. 

So take heart.  Hurts mend.  Pain lessens.  Sunshine returns.  Spring comes.  Faithfulness remains.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."                                            -Jeremiah 29:11

I have a random question for you. I would love to borrow/steal the peonies clip art at the bottom of this post, but wondered if you owned the rights to the image or know where you originally found it. Please let me know. Thank you.
