No Matter What-Where-When-Why-How



 Yesterday we attended our niece's wedding.
It is common on such a day to hear someone (more midde-staged) remark
'they have no idea what lies ahead' or what they are getting themselves into"
just as we didn't and still don't!

But if we begin on the right path when we are young
with God as the Leader, what many a wrong turn we can avoid
and what a comfort when hard times come, 
(as a few of the young men
in this particular wedding-party have already been through;
death of parents etc) to trust in God.
These young men's speeches made me laugh as they shared loving memories 
and shed tears as they shared words of encouragement through faith in God!
(the only meaningful or true encouragement there can be)

(Haven't shared this song in a little while)



No matter what this life may bring
To alter what had been our plan
We know that nothing comes between
The faithful love of God to man

No matter where life’s path may go
Or what this very day betides
Through each Unknown still this we know
The faithful love of God abides

No matter when, why, how that we
Experience love’s chastening rod
What peace precedes the destiny
If we trust in the love of God

 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, 
neither angels nor principalities, 
neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,
neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, 
will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.…
Romans 8:37-39
