When the world seems crazy, I remember...
God is good all the time!
Lately it seems like the world has gone crazy. There is so much confusion, hurt, pain, and disconnection. When I listen to the news or read the newspaper it's easy to feel scared, stressed and worried.
When that happens, I am reminding myself to do three things. First, I want to take a deep breath. Second, I want to remember Who is really in charge and that is God Almighty, the Maker of Heaven and earth. Third, I stop and thank God for His Almighty love and the blessings that abound in my life.
Focusing on God and Gratitude changes
While things may not be easy, I am reminded over and over again that God does not leave us or forsake us. He is there in the hard and very hard. He loves all of His children.
And then I look into my sweet Granddaughter's face, and Annora's contagious smile eases my heart. I find God's love in her eyes. I see how she is growing and thriving and am reminded that she is an answer to prayer... so many prayers!
Thank you to all of you who prayed for her!
And I slowly feel a calm in my heart. One of the very best parts of our recent lake vacation was holding this sweet darling in my arms and rocking her back and forth...singing softly into her ears...
"Jesus loves me this I know..."
I do know that in my deepest heart of hearts!
Suddenly... all is well.
