I just finished reading my Grandma's 1924 copy of the book,
Heidi, by Johanna Spyri, and it was such a sweet story,
I decided to share a little of it with you today. Somehow
life always seems to come back to whether or not we
choose to trust in God and His plan, doesn't it?
"When we do not know what more to do we must go and tell
everything to God," answered Heidi with decision.
"Ah, that is a good thought of yours, Heidi," said the doctor.
"But if it is God Himself who has sent the trouble,
what can we say to Him then?"
Heidi sat thinking for a while.
"Then we must wait," she said, "and keep on saying to ourselves,
God certainly knows of some happiness for us
which he is going to bring out of the trouble,
only we must have patience and not run away."
"And then all at once something happens and we see clearly
ourselves that God has had some good thought in His mind
all along; but because we cannot see things beforehand,
and only know how dreadfully miserable we are,
we think it is always going to be so."
I am joining Tea Time Tuesday again today.
