I love listening to variations. Watching the theme weave in and out of the melody, sometimes hidden, sometimes apparent. This year has been the hardest of my life. But it's all been variations on a theme...
But my happiness cannot rely on those hopes.
I can know that the Lord will be faithful. And my happiness and joy will come from that amazing wonder. Praise be to our God!
May you see the faithfulness of the Lord in this new year. :)
