This morning I woke up and just so happened to have an online devotional sent to me in my email. Thankfully, we had ½ G of data left so I could read and pass it along to the hubs. It was hard to read, yet comforting at the same time.
These words were loud and clear.
“As an offering of trust, we must give up that which could so easily bring us down.
Not give up as in discouraged surrender. But give up as in placing this desire in the hand of God and saying, “Either way, I will see Your answer as the good answer and walk in trust.”
As a wife, it’s hard to see your husband’s career take off then backfire due to injury. It’s hard to see him FULL OF CONFIDENCE then have to start all over, building it up again from scratch. And to be honest, it’s hard to see him sacrifice so much only to be feel disappointed in the end.
It is not the end. We are staying positive, yet realistic.
IT. IS. WHAT. IT. IS
Realistic in the fact that there is a time to feel angry, disappointed, and frustrated. Those feelings need to be let out, am I right!?
2012 still awaits for us. It’s our last year to really go for those dreams. We will focus on that. No looking back, no looking forward.
With that being said, New Zealand did bring us healing. In ourselves, our marriage, and so much more.
Tonight we board our plane for Austin. Our journey here may come to a halt, but it is not over. Just switching gears you might say.
Cheers to New Zealand.
I have race pictures and a recap coming up later. First we must get home and settled.
Thanks for always supporting TEAM COTTER. Thanks for letting ME (the wife) share my life here. Thanks for following us on this crazy ride.
