My Life. Beautiful, Ugly, Unfiltered.

“Snowflakes are one of life’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together”
If I were to be really upfront and honest, which is exactly what I promised to be– I would have to say that this past year has been really hard for us. There have been many, many situations beyond our control that have taken a toll on us emotionally and spiritually. Our world has been rocked. I wasn’t even really thinking about these things anymore, I was just planning to post up these pictures that we had taken this weekend… which are so precious. Then I started editing them a little (which is not my forte so please do not judge) and I just was overwhelmed with thankfulness.
God has been faithful through this entire year. I can’t even begin to tell all the things that we have been through, but I can say that there were times– more than one– when I, and I can only speak for myself, was questioning God. I am a strong Christian. I do not question God…but… I was hurt, and angry, and let down. I was hurt, angry and let down, by people who were supposed to be representing God. People who had represented God to me. I am past that all now, because I have realized that through it all HE has not failed me. Not once. HE has been there through it all.
I am reminded of this again today, as I look through these pictures and I see the most precious gift He has given me. And it came right on time. He gave me this gift right before the turmoil, right before the storm. I am so grateful I have had this precious gift to distract me, to keep me laughing when all I wanted to do was cry, to teach me patience that I otherwise would have lost on people. He gave me the precious gift of my family. My Snowflakes.
