Mourning into Dancing
Yesterday we were able to take two of our grandchildren to parks after spending some difficult but productive time with our friend Jim. There is a time to mourn and a time to dance. The joy of the Lord is our strength. He gives us each day what we need to persevere, not only just survive, but shout His praises in all circumstances. He leads us beside still waters and restores our souls.
Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O Lord, my God, I will give thanks unto thee forever.
