Deb told me about Louie Giglio’s “Indescribable” message that is on UTube. Wow! I’ve always loved watching the stars and planets in the night and early morning skies, and this message reinforced my sense of wonder. All I can say is: “How great is our God! He created it all, and he holds it all in his hands.”
These are some of Giglio’s words:

“Maybe you are looking at a huge mountain. Maybe it’s the mountain of depression, or divorce, or abandon(ment), or loneliness, or (maybe) you have been wrongly accused and served a huge injustice. It could be cancer, or bankruptcy, or the darkness of death it’s self…but I say to you: there is nothing that this world can throw at you that can shake you out of the hand of God who is holding the entire universe in his very palm tonight and holding you. And his grace is big enough, and strong enough to hold on to you through it all, and to bring you through it all, and to bring you to the very end of it all still loving him and rejoicing in his goodness even in the darkness. You can trust him. We haven’t seen everything of God in our lives, but we have seen enough to trust him fully for the rest of our days.’

Psalm 33 says it like this:
“By the word of the LORD were the heavens made,
their starry host by the breath of his mouth. (he is a star-breathing God)

From heaven LORD looks down and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches all who live on earth- he who forms the hearts of all, (and is intimately acquainted with) everything they do.

But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love, to deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine.”

Thank you, Lord, for keeping us alive in this famine,

Hey Gayla,
My heart is so heavy. I keep thinking about you and ALL of Kathy's family esp Todd and the kids. Even me, just a past friend finds myself thinking about Kathy each day. I am still praying for all of you. I love your blog... keep it going. You have blessed me. Please tell Todd that we love him. Jackie McNabb

Your blog is always an inspiration to me, as you know. Very few weeks go by but what I look to see what you have written. There are other blogs, but none so inspiring as yours. Please keep it going, even if I am the only one to see it, which I am sure I am not.
