Meditations

My meditation the past several days as I wrestle with the realities of becoming a mom, being distracted in that process by Travis' school, our jobs and our uncertain future living situation has been from Morning and Evening by CH Spurgeon:

March 16th- Morning

But here is the sweetness of my lot: I am a stranger with Thee. Thou art my fellow-sufferer, my fellow-pilgrim. Oh, what joy to wander in such blessed society! My heart burns within me by the way when thou dost speak to me, and though I be a sojourner, I am far more blest than those who sit on thrones, and far more at home than those who dwell in their ceiled houses.

"To me remains nor place, nor time: My country is in every clime; I can be calm and free from care: On any shore, since God is there. While place we seek, or place we shun, The soul finds happiness in none: But with a God to guide our way, 'Tis equal joy to go or stay."
