I stood out on a dock and took it in.  The sky was its own show.  The colors of the marsh grass and the cool sandy mud at its edge, they were such a gift.  It was New Year's Day, and I stood there for quite some time... reflecting.  Another year had passed, and with it so much heartache and so much joy.  We lost two babies in 2018.  A dear friend lost her husband... another, her daughter.  And yet, we had so many celebrations.  My husband began a new job!  I started painting again.  Our children grew.  Friendships deepened. 

Each year brings with it, its own change and challenges.  Some are wrought with grief, others make us burst with joy.  I didn't know at the time, that we would become pregnant again... it's another girl!  But, I knew, yes, I knew without a doubt, my Father's steadfast love.  I painted this scene, because it was so so beautiful.  All of it.
And I didn't want to forget.  That's the kind of love he provides.  A love that transcends despair... steadfast and sure.

I did a quick search of "steadfast love" on a Bible website and it popped up with over 200 results.  In other words, His steadfast love is all over the whole Bible.  But perhaps, Psalm 136 says it best by repeating this truth over 26 times:

"Give thanks to the God of heaven,
    for his steadfast love endures forever."
