I come from a family of music-lovers... it seems my memories of my Dad always have him whistling or singing a little tune. My mom played the piano so music filled our home. My sisters play the piano and all of us kids sing... so it's no surprise when God drops a song in my path when things are hard... or even joyous.

Today as I was driving home in the rain feeling rather numb this song came on the cd I had playing and I just kept hitting repeat because it ministered to me... and is what's really in my heart of hearts...

You are Faithful
by Hillsong

Lord of all the earth
how you care for me
You have made me
You will saved me
and carry me always

You are faithful
You are faithful
You are faithful
Your joy is my strength

Lord you are my guide
I rely on You
I put my hope in things not seen
Your promises are all true

Always you are with me
Your hand will lead me
My trust is in Your name

You are faithful
You are faithful
You are faithful
Your joy is my strength

Then as I opened my Bible to read from while I ate my lunch He took me to this verse....

Psalm 18:1 & 2:
I love you , Lord;
you are my strength.
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior...

He is faithful and He IS my strength... that about says it all. Even when things are rough, when puppies die and little kids get cancer... when you feel alone... in the midst of things you don't understand... in the quietness... He is there. He is there and He knows exactly what we need when we need it. Sometimes, it comes in the comfort of a song or the hug of a friend or even... just.... being. He is faithful...

What a great song JUST for you on this hard day! Isn't it wonderful we serve a God who cares about how we're doing when we lose our special pet. I know you are missing Daisy, but I also know you are turning to the One who can comfort you and heal you! I love you friend!! And I care!
