I think I can do without the "thud"...

I just wrote a nice long blog about what is wrong with the world, and then when I got to the end and went to post the verse from Scripture- God reminded me of the truth. Everything is only wrong with the world when my eyes leave His. Oh, what a comfort that thought is! Thank you, Lord, for knowing exactly when to slap me into my senses and using your Word as a never failing flashlight in the dark.

If you are feeling like things couldn't get messier in your life right now, that people are mean little liars and the sun might never shine again- I pray that God would slap you into your senses. :) With all my heart. That sounds terribly indifferent, and I don't mean it to be. I just mean that good things will come, because God is good. It feels so much better to remember that my perspective is not God's- and if I can just trust Him step for step...He will see me through. As He will you, sista.

Anne says it so much nicer, but I think it gives you the drift of what I mean: "When I think something nice is going to happen I seem to fly right up on the wings of anticipation; and then the first thing I realize I drop down to earth with a thud. But really, Marilla, the flying part is glorious as long as it's like soaring through a sunset. I think it almost pays for the thud." (pg 148 Anne of Avonlea L.M. Montgomery)

Hope tomorrow find you soaring! I know I can't wait for "spring" to come again.
"Let not the wise boast of their wisdom
or the strong boast of their strength
or the rich boast of their riches,
but let the one who boasts boast about this:
that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
justice and righteousness on earth,
for in these I delight,” declares the LORD." Jeremiah 9:23-24

Daphne! It that yours? Will you share?
I know things will not satisfy but I also know that God gave us joys in this life and the sweet scent of Daphne is one of those. Thank you Lord!
