Scripture and a Snapshot

It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is your faithfulness. 
Lamentations 3: 22-23

     My sister is in the hospital. As I sat by her side I watched the numbers on the machine connected through so many wires to her body. She slept and started to heal. My kids texted me that three of the eggs they've been watching so closely in the incubator have tiny cracks and then they started to hear tiny chirps. New life emmerging! Friends have shared online about watching the birth of a baby giraffe. More new life. Winter here was so mild, bushes are blooming all around. As I drove to the hospital in Baton Rouge I passed beautiful azalea bushes filled with purple blooms then piles of Sheetrock and insulation still being torn out of buildings that were flooded. New beside old. I'm thankful for new mercies every morning. Great is his faithfulness!
