Two weeks ago, after losing touch and not seeing each other for over thirty years, my college roommate and I had the grandest reunion in Memphis, Tennessee. We found each other through social media about four months before and after talking on the phone for about hour and a half, catching up, but getting an all too brief outline of each other’s lives, we finally got to see each other again.
Have you ever seen anything like it? This sentiment could apply to most anything these days—natural disasters concerning the weather—tornadoes and floods, earthquakes, or violence, unrest and turmoil in this nation, or, surprise! this year’s presidential election. Most of us would likely say, “No. This is the worst it has ever been.” But, truly, is it? There have been times before this that the world has seen unbelievable things.
My daughter, Laura, is a new mom. So for Mother’s Day weekend, she wrote a guest post for my blog. She’s learning an important lesson on surrender.

Here’s what the Lord has been showing me.
