Songs of Joy in Spite of Tears

I think I am shrinking! This is a picture of my family (yes, they are all my kids except for my husband - to my left- and my brother - far left in front).
We certainly fill a photo lens, don't we?!?!
This was the night of Nick's big day! Our town hosted Nick Nischan Day where Nick was given a key to the city and was surprised by a visit from Mike Furrey, wide receiver with the Detroit Lions! Nick has been battling cancer for nearly 6 years (he is the one in the front center).
I was just looking back through pictures and thought I'd share this little memory with all of you.
I guess I am just realizing how amazing God is, and how He can take a horrible situation and make it exciting and rewarding.
God is like that! I love the verses in Psalm 126 that say, Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him.
We have truly had many tears in the Nischan house, but we have determined to continue to carry the "seed" (God's Word) along the way....and God has been faithful to continue to give us songs of joy in return!
I hope that whatever you are facing, you will determine to face it with God's Word alongside you! You will be blessed if you do!
