I spent much of this week up in the mountains at Girls' Camp. And while I was there, I was most grateful for answers to prayers which came surely and softly and made my load lighter. The first night I called David with a heavy heart and said, "Please pray for me." I know my Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers and I am so grateful for the very real and tender care I felt from heaven. As I was walking back to our cabin in the dark one night (I had lent my flashlight to one of my girls), I remembered a part of this quote, and again gave humble thanks for the chance I had to feel the hand of the Lord in my life.
“I said to the man who stood at the gate of the year, ‘Give me a light that I may tread safely into the unknown.’ And he replied, ‘Go out into the darkness and put your hand into the Hand of God. That shall be to you better than a light and safer than a known way.’”
