He's already sifted through...

“Knowin’ Jesus has already sifted through what’s comin’ before it gets to me . . . Well, I reckon that ought to be enough.”

I love starting my day off with notes from my family! This quote was sent to me by my Aunt Kay...and I LOVE IT!

Life is messy, it's unpredictable, and as we are learning, it can be full of trials and sadness.
And still, what a friend we have in Jesus.
Jesus has already taken care of what's coming and it is enough.
HE is enough.

Today is the first day of July, the month our little Amelia will be born and more than likely the month that she will be called to home to rest with her heavenly father. July is going to be tough.

I have found myself, more often than I would imagine was possible for this type A'er, saying, God will handle that, he'll take care of that part...

In the midst of all of this madness, I can still find peace in him. I don't know if I can accurately describe how awe struck that peace leaves me. Some days are harder than others, but I never lose that peace---even when I am not asking God for it. It's just there. Day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute...

God will take care of it.

Your honesty and faith in God is so refreshing. Thank you for opening your heart - you've been such an encouragement.

You and your family have been in my prayers.

The more time that passes, the more I feel led to pray for God's arms around your family. Amelia is so blessed to have you for a mommy! She knows love already!

I pray that the feeling of peace will continue to surround you. It's amazing how when we give up control how God moves in our lives.
