Ali was hostess to a visit from her Grandpa and Auntie from Florida. It's been a few weeks since Grandpa has been able to visit. He notices incredible improvement in Ali since the last time he was here in San Francisco. Auntie arrived with an armload of gifts for little Ali. She fell asleep comfortably in Auntie's arms while she rocked and hummed to little Ali.
Little Ali has brought together two families that would probably never have crossed paths. No one ever knows what lies just around the next turn. All the planning in the world can never adequately prepare anyone for the plot-twists in our life's story.
So how do we get through it? How do we set ourselves up to properly face the future?
"He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood rose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock."
Matthew 6:33, 34
"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness..."
"...do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble."
