Today's blog post is short and sweet, just two adorable "short" and "sweet" little Swazi darlings blessing us with their beautiful smiles.

Hope they bring joy to your heart the way they do mine. It is easy to let the cares of this world bog us down --- unexpected doctor visits, vehicle repairs, difficult people, lack of funds --- but the Lord wants us to trust Him and go through this life, even through the hard times, knowing that He loves us and we don't have to strive. We can rest in the fact that He is a good Father and nothing is too hard for Him. Even when He lets us go through suffering, it is ultimately for our good and His glory.

Sometimes He sends us reminders of His faithfulness through a scripture passage, worship song, or a sermon. Sometimes it is as simply as the hug from a precious friend or the smile of a beautiful child.

Blessings to you all and may your week be filled with many other reminders that God is good and desires for you to be full of His powerful, sustaining joy.

  “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. 
In this world you will have trouble.
 But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Jesus --- John 16:33
