AND, everything I listen to or have read in the past few days points to a HARVEST OF JOY around the corner. Promises in the Bible, in songs, in my readings.
Definition of harvest:
- a yield
- the consequence of an effort or activity
- the gathering
- the season
#2 Son is to return home in September - these past 10 months have been a Season, with a capital "S", a consequence of certain "activities" of his. The YIELD will be repentance & restoration. And the gathering.......oh, the reunion!
We will have one 8-hour day with him in August - his furlough, before his sentence is over. See? August - fall'ish. So much to look forward to...
Today, I was led to this Psalm of restoration:
He is bringing our family out of captivity. Better than we ever dreamed. We are filled with joy. We have shed many a tear, but will reap with songs of JOY!
Can I hear a chorus of woo-hoo's please??????
JOY to you...
