Safely Home

We made it home safely late last (Thursday) night.  It’s a long trip but everything went well.  We came back to snow everywhere.  It looks beautiful but we need to reacclimatize to cold weather.  Thanks so much for your prayers and gifts.

The song going through my head this past month, and especially today, is “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.”  I’m pretty good at imagining all kinds of things that can go wrong, especially when traveling half way around the world, but I’m sure the actual list is much longer. Still, God had all those things under control and took care of all of them and we arrived safely home.  We can home to news of a good friend who doesn’t have much longer to live and I’ve been thinking about how God will bring him safely home as well.  That’s true for all of us.  We all will have that great homecoming day one day – either one by one or all at once if He returns.  Either way He has it all covered.  He indeed is a faithful God!

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee,
Thou changest not, Thy compassion’s, they fail not,
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be. 

Great is Thy faithfulness! 
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me! 

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest, 
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love. 

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth 
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside! 

Read the words slowly and carefully and thank God for His faithfulness to you: past, present and future.
