Day Thirty-Four: The Rescue

I am late for posting this. It is already the 15th in my time zone, so technically I have failed at posting one gift a day for 1000 days. But, I can't go back and grab the day and start over. I will move forward and try again. Besides, it is still March 14th on the west coast. :)

Today was a day of too much looking back, remembering past mistakes of my own and other people. Some were minor mistakes in the scheme of things; others were horrific. I apologize for the apparent rambling here. It has been an emotional day.

They say no good deed goes unpunished. On the surface, that would seem to be true. However, sitting here, fourteen years since the beginning of it and just under four years past the end of it, I can see that what seemed bad at the time was actually a good thing for me and my family. It wasn't a punishment, them going. What they meant for evil, He worked to the good. It was a blessing. In reality, Heavenly Father rescued us from evil and we are free.

34. I am thankful for a Heavenly Father that knows what He's doing, even though I do not understand what is going on at the time. I am thankful for the strength He has given me to endure, even when I feel like I cannot hold on any longer. When the last straw is about to break, He is there with a reload.

I do not know what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow!
