I am a fly off the handle, go crazy, lose my temper, get frustrated, way too easily kind of person. Perhaps that is why I like the calm of the early morning, when everyone is asleep and nothing disturbs me. And I love the silence and stillness of a freshly fallen snow. This is a SOOC (in color) shot (with the exception of adding the words) of my backyard Saturday (yesterday) morning. The snow blankets everything in a little cocoon of black and white stillness, it is all quiet and calm -
How I pray for my heart and my mind to be still and know - that God is God.
He is in control, He loves my kids more than I do, and if He can let go and let them make their own choices, then I have to do the same, no matter how hard it is.
My heart breaks as I watch them making the choices that they do . . .
Today I am praying God will give me the strength to keep praying for them and to cling to the knowledge that He wants none to perish. I continue to cling to the wisdom of Proverbs 22:6 and pray God will bring someone into their lives that will bring them to the realization that God is the One worthy of devoting your life too - in all ways.
