"and that I too will trust in His will for my life. . . . and harder still, that I might trust in His plan for the lives of those I love."

This really touched my heart. My son is being deployed to Iraq in February. It is indeed hard to trust the plan He has for the lives of those I love.



Kira, what a beautiful reflection for the beginning of Advent, thank you.


Kira, this is a very moving post---such inspiring thoughts here! Thank you for sharing from your heart and for submitting this to the Loveliness of Advent.

This is my first visit to your blog. It is beautiful and I will be back. Congratulations and many blessing on your new daughter! We almost adopted a little girl from Kaz, but it was not His plan for us. I still pray for her every night, and I'm sure that was His plan.

God bless your family!
