Stressful Day


We had a stressful day today. And honestly - not a whole lot stresses us out - but when it comes to the well-being of our girl up there - her safety, her happiness, her amazingly joyful spirit... well - we will go to any lengths to preserve those.

And sometimes that involves stress. And it's during those times that we - as a family - try to lean on this verse:

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"
          - Matthew 6:25-27
Our God is so much bigger than any stress, worry or fear we may latch on to.

God - if you happen to be reading this one today - thank you for showing up and intervening this morning. We needed your guidance and you were there.
