Trust In Providence

“Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.”  St. Augustine

Providence is defined in my on-line dictionary  as “the foreseeing care and guidance of God or nature over the creatures of the earth.”  There are, I suppose, many reasons that would cause one to not trust in Providence – God knows I dwell on those often enough.  But today I celebrate a reason to trust “the foreseeing care and guidance of God” – my 25th anniversary of being married to my beautiful wife.  I suppose I could attempt to put all of that in written word, but I know it would be insufficient.  It is, it occurs to me, sufficient for to acknowledge, particularly on this day, that God is good, and that trusting in Providence is a good thing.
