Since January

Since January, I feel like I'm on a merry-go-round that just keeps spinning faster and faster ...


Just a few of the things that have happened:

Through it all - I think I might have gone a little crazy if it weren't for the peace that Jesus gives.  And trust me when I say that the above list is just a small portion of things that have been occurring in my family's life.

So right now, I'm taking a very deep breath, and thanking God for his peace and assurance.  I am blessed by a wonderful family and knowing he is in control is my anchor through the storm.

Remember, no matter what you're going through - you have choices.  You can either sit and say 'woe is me' wondering where God is ... or you can give Him glory through the chaos, knowing He is there to comfort and lead you.

If you're facing your own crazy merry-go-round, wondering where you can get off and stop spinning - trust me, I feel you.  Keep looking up and ask for reassurance through the rough times, and He'll give it to you.
