Spirit of Peace

Bed time seems to be the hardest part of our day. Jonathan has delt with "bad dreams" for quite a while. Little did I know that this is a sign of anxiety. He is doing better now that he is getting help

This is the Good Life

VBS is always fun! We go every year often to a couple different ones. This is a year I will never forget. We were visiting friends and enjoying VBS at their church. Thursday night my friend shared the gospel with my son's class. He whispered to me "I believe".

On days like these

Stop trying to push your way through this day and rest in your Father's arms. Pour out your heart to Him every pain, every fear, don't hold anything back. Then let Him hold you when it hurts. Rest in Him and let His peace fill your heart. This peace doesn't mean you don't have things to do, things to be concerned about or even that the ache and weight of it all goes away. His peace comes in the middle of it all.

If it is Strength You See…

When someone hears my story I sometimes get told
"you're strong..."
or
"God won't give you more than you can handle"
 
I've often just smile but I really don't like being told this. They may see the girl standing in front of them at the moment and she may look strong. But what they don't know is that I am literally biting my tongue because I don't want to cry (again).
