The Minor Chords

Some days feel like minor chords. An unexpected, reflective moment that gives you that "I think I might cry" feeling. We are so confused about the future right now. Of course we can't know what is ahead, we can only pray for wisdom when the time comes to make a decision, but Aaron and I are both feeling the temptation to get anxious.
A couple nights ago we were up most of the night talking, going back and forth about Boston. Reality is hitting us hard these days. We can't go anywhere without feeling a bit depressed over the possibilities of, friends, church, school, beautiful Oregon. I especially have been struggling with a future that will include isolation & loneliness. I know this sounds depressing but I have lived far away before and to be's stinkin' hard! I want to put on the brave face but all I hear is those minor chords bringing me to tears. Still, I know that a song without minors is predictable and honestly, boring. So...

Jesus, I ask for peace...I pray for courage....and I thank You with all my life for making our song into a symphony praise. Amen.
