June 9, 2008

God, I praise You for this sense of peace. You're teaching me contentment. To be content where You've brought me. My summer will not be all I had dreamed it would be. It will not include a little boy named Nathan. It will not include learning how to juggle two children. It will not include painting a nursery blue for our new little boy. However, it will include moments of sadness and moments of joy. It will include time without work, spent with my daughter before she goes off to kindergarten in the fall. It will include new memories to treasure. Father, I thank you now for what this summer (& year) hold despite my previous dreams and prayers and plans. Your ways are not my ways, but you do have a plan and a purpose for each day in my life - help me to grab a hold of each moment and see You in it. Amen.

Isaiah 26:3-4
3 You will keep in perfect peace
him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.

4 Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
