Happy New Years Eve, Eve! It’s been a good day here at the McClendon house. I have been working on our house since right after Thanksgiving. Organizing, cleaning, purging, trying to get our lives back in order after 6 months of flying by the seating our pants. Slowly but surely I have made progress each day. Sorting through Kayleigh’s things has been wonderful and difficult all at the same time. Some days I could spend hours in her room, with her things. And other times just looking at them for a moment was too much. But I matter what kind of day it is, God has walked with me. Picking me up when it’s too much and giving me strength to continue every day.
Finally, things are in the home stretch. I still have a few projects but nothing like where I started. Today, I enjoyed hanging pictures – and found great joy in seeing her beautiful face. Knowing that she is with our savior – well loved, safe, whole, healthy – that makes my heart smile.
Psalm 16:88 I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
4 He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.
I loved these metal wings. They seemed perfect to remind me that she, as well as the rest of us, are indeed sheltered with His wings.
