I got an e-mail yesterday from my Grandpa Roy. He's been sending us e-mails every week or so to encourage us as we're walking through this time. I think he thinks it doesn't help, but it always does. The one he sent yesterday was maybe my favorite so far. He included the words to his mom's favorite hymn. They were such a blessing to me and I wanted to share them with you.
He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater;
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase.
To added affliction He addeth His mercy;
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun.
His love has no limit; His grace has no measure,
His power has no boundary known unto men.
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus,
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.
