The Scarf Sisters Bible - A Rose in the Thorns
Many prayers and physical support has been rallied for Japan’s restoration from the devastation from earthquakes. The same comfort and compassion has been poured out for victims of the recent storms which have ravaged through our southeastern United States. Heartbreaking images of families separated and desperately searching for their loved ones have dominated the news.
In the midst of so much stress and sadness, I discovered a mysterious package in my mailbox this week. I was delighted to find The Scarf Sisters Bible. Also included where gifts and scriptures from special women around the world. One gift was a book titled, A Cup of Comfort.
I always marvel at how God works. I had just had a conversation with friends about how God desires to be our comfort in all walks of our lives. I plan to share more about my favorite scripture on comfort on a later post. This scripture is both a conviction and a comfort to me as I hope it will be to others.
Nothing catches God by surprise. He always goes before us to make a way. Even through these horrible tragedies, there is a Rose among life’s thorns. It is His Word and unfailing love for us.
Thank you, dear Sisters of the Scarf for the encouragement. I look forward to reading each verse and message left by each of you.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted
