Well, it is thundering and raining here right now. I just made myself a tasty lunch and now I wanted to take a few moments for a break before I get back to housework.
I am really enjoying listening to the thunder and rain. It is so calming to me for some reason. I am reminded of God's promise to bring us peace, even in the midst of the storms of life. He is doing that for me today.
I miss my daughter so very much, but the Lord is bringing me peace through my storm. I know He still has great plans in store for me, but I must decide to get up and walk them out every day. I simply cannot lay in bed. I cannot pretend to be productive. I cannot stay where I am emotionally, physically, or spiritually. I have to move forward in the life He has given to me.
As I continue to listen to the thunder and rain this afternoon I will remember that He is carrying me through this storm and helping me to become who He wants me to be.
