“Why don’t I do this more often?”

That is what I am asking myself as I sit in this quiet idyllic moment. All is right with the world. Not really, but for now I am remembering that God is in complete control. It’s amazing how that foundational truth frees me up to relax. And in this moment of peace I am filled with awe of the simple pleasures in my life.

…sitting on my screen porch wrapped in a blanket

….watching the slow setting of the sun

…the graceful movements of the pink clouds

…the sweet aroma of my lilac bushes

…Buddy, the wonder-dog, sleeping

….the birds serenading me

All I am observing points to a creative God who coordinates the universe to the cellular detail. And Scripture teaches me that God cares more for me than the birds of the air and the flowers of the field. He created me. He knows the plans He has for me. He knows how the details will work together. I need to remember that the next time l begin to hyperventilate over what I cannot control or don’t understand. I suppose peace flows out of a deep trust in my Heavenly Father.

    Had a similar thought today Deb. Actually said out loud to someone that I had trouble having faith when I’m in situations that require, well, faith. When everything’s out of my control and I just have to trust that God’s working on it.

    Miss you friend! SO much to catch up on next time we chat 🙂

    so glad I decided to check out your blog this afternoon! A timely post for me……have to just trust my Creator that He has everything in control…so hard sometimes but when I do, the greatest peace descends into heart, mind and even body!
    Thanks for sharing this….
    if you ever get a chance: I am involved in an online ministry called Marriage Monday (fellow Christian women bloggers) and this month’s topic was Communication and Physical Intimacy. I thought it was interesting to write about since Pastor Rex has just begun the Marriages that Last series! (which Dave and I are thoroughly enjoying!)……if you read mine, let me know what you think 🙂
    blessings to you!
