This week was so rough. It seemed like everything went wrong, although now I realize that it certainly could have been much worse. Still, it was a tough week for me. But I prayed a lot. And you know what? Those prayers were answered in ways that I couldn't have imagined, and for the most part, everything ended up working out. It was a hard few days, but it served as an excellent reminder that I'm not in control, and I need to be more faithful and trusting.

One thing that did make me happy, though, was walking out on my balcony and seeing how beautiful this tree is right now! I don't know how I didn't notice it until just yesterday. (And I didn't edit that picture at all... it's really that bright!)

Hey Kelsi,

I'm sorry you had a rough week but glad to know that everything turned out well. Prayers do help and good for you for remembering to have faith. That's what it's all about....There's not a lot we can control in this world. But we sure can control our attitude about it.

p.s. this is tree is beautiful.
