Remaining what God created us to be

“My attitude toward sorrow and difficulty should not be to ask that they be prevented, but to ask that God protect me so that I may remain what He created me to be, in spite of all my fires of sorrow.”  Oswald Chambers

And for me personally, I need to remain “what God created me to be” when I get frustrated that what “I planned” does not happen.

Lopez Island

The San Juan Islands lie north of Seattle, WA, a ferry ride away from the town of Anacortes. Each island creates its own personality.  Meg and I have enjoyed five delightful days at the home of family friends on Lopez Island.  Lopez is relatively flat, making it fun to bike along farmlands and  and ocean bays. We have enjoyed kayaking in the bay as well as just sitting and watching the evening light change on the water.
