he giveth and giveth and giveth again

i am coming off a crummy morning, after a crummy day yesterday and a fairly crummy night before that.  the last hour has been amazingly different.  it may just be a brief rest in the whirlwind of fibromyalgia flare-ups and overly emotional and tired young children (& mama) or it may be we are slowly climbing out of the pit of yuckiness.  either way i am grateful. 

this seemed like an excellent time to share a poem we came across last week.  after listening to a ravi zacharias teaching that referenced it, jesse e-mailed me a link to these words.  annie's story is one of true inspiration.  i have been poring over her work since then.

i took a moment over the weekend to write out this poem and add it to my inspiration board.  looking up this morning, i felt such a softening of my heart as i read the words.  thank God for giving this woman such strength and conviction and wisdom. 

he giveth and giveth and giveth again
