Thank YOU for peace.

MY FACEBOOK POST TODAY:

Life can get absolutely insanely chaotic at times, but there is always a still calm peace present when you know WHO made you. Just sayin.

‪#‎thankfulEVERYday‬

It is so true!  There has definitely been some chaos in my life recently, but I know MY GOD is real and therefore I make it, because HE is my strength.  How do people who don’t have His strength do it?  It’s a fact that a lot of them don’t.  I won’t get into that.  I know there are many arguments that could go along with that statement and I don’t write this blog for that.

I write this blog to reflect and remind myself of the wonderfulness this world has…and the WONDERFULNESS I am looking forward to when my life here in this world is done.

So, even in the craziness that sometimes seems like it’s being dumped on our head like a big ole bucket of paint…

I can say …sing even…

“It is well, with my soul…it is well, it is well…with my soul!”  because…

“What ever my lot YOU have taught me to say
It is well, it is well with my soul”

Thank You Lord for teaching me this and sustaining me through anything in order to have Your peace.  Amen.

The GRAND Scheme

Sometimes we get hung up on things at work, our children’s grades, what people say to us or the way someone even looks at us.  We make a big deal of something that, in the grand scheme of things, is very minuscule.  I will not begin to tell you that I never do this.

I have and I’m sure, I will again.

I remember one morning I spent sweeping and mopping the floors in our house only to have one of my children spill a whole glass of sweet tea or kool-aid, I can’t remember which, across the kitchen.  What was worse, they didn’t tell me they did it and TRIED to clean it up themselves with a hand towel.  Later, walking in to the kitchen, my socks stuck to the kitchen floor. I went crazy.  When I say crazy, I mean, not in my right mind crazy.

Looking back, it was unneeded, it was ridiculous and it will be something that my children may never forget.

Looking back, I also ask myself, did they MEAN to spill it?  Did they try their best to clean it up?  It’s just a floor!  Nothing was bleeding or broken or life-threatening.  I went coo coo for something that was not going to change the course of history or stop time in anyway.

I’m not saying I’m stressed out all the time, but I have realized this week, that I do stress over silly things sometimes.  I don’t mean to at all. I like to be laid back and calm.  Peace is my absolute favorite thing.  Peace, sometimes though, is something we must find within so as to spread it all around.

I know, others tend to bring to life the total opposite of peace, but the way we react to such things is what matters.  That is what allows us insanity or peace.  It goes right back to what I always say: It’s all about how you look at it.

So, as this work week ends and the weekend begins, I reflect on what is important to life in the, as I referred to earlier: GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS.

The List:

GOD

FAMILY

FRIENDS

((  Love from my Father above, love of family/friends and LOVE I can show to others.  ))

Even though we have deadlines, tests and other stresses on the list, this list above truly is the MOST IMPORTANT in the scheme!

May I please keep my life in this perspective, always.  Amen.
