Did you know that some of the sweetest days you will ever have, haven’t even happened yet? The time in your life you
laugh so hard you can barely breathe—that
day isn’t here just yet. And the way you
look at your child the day they get married . . . you never felt such joy. That day
So much is around the bend, around the
corner, down the road. Happiness waits for
you there. Wild, hard to contain kind of joy
will be upon you. Laughter at what you never
dreamed would happen. New, upcoming
small feet and hands to hold, the rains that
will pour down hard outside while you are
snuggling with someone inside—those
rains are not yet here. Those future snuggles
have not yet come. But they will.
Don’t you know, God has good plans
for you? He works all things out for good
to those who love Him. And you love Him
with all your heart. You read His Word and
obey His commands. You’re not perfect,
but you strive to please Him. He is on your
mind as you test yourself, as His Word says.
You model Christ to your children so they

In the morning, the first One you think of
is our Lord. At night as you fall asleep, your
mind is filled with thankfulness for what

of jubilee. The best is coming. Bear up now
because it’s just a season. Endure! Accor-
ding to His great plan, He allows life to ebb
and flow, trials to come and go, but there is
a common thread through it all. A truth, an
absolute, that He is God and on the throne
no matter what happens. Nothing shakes
Him. And you too will not be shaken. Never
will you be shaken .
“Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you
righteous ones; and shout for joy, all you
who are upright in heart” (Psalm 32: 11).
Your sweetest, most cherished memories
you will ever experience, probably have
not yet even occurred. He has written your
story, and it’s beautiful, Mama. Joy comes in
the morning. Eyes on Christ. The One who
redeemed you loves you, and you can trust
His heart. His hand is on your head today.
Your sweetest, most cherished
memories you will ever experience,
