I can't believe that it's back to school time already. Today my youngest "baby" is starting middle school and starting Thursday I will only be a part-time homemaker. We are experiencing so many changes in our lives and in our family. New is hard, especially for people like me.
Just yesterday my oldest son was carrying a Spider Man Lunch box to school. Now he's a grown man serving his country overseas. Only one of my kids is still shorter than I am. They are such precious treasures to their mom and I am praying that they learn and grow and have wonderful new adventures in this coming year. I can't always be there to protect them from life's bumps and bruises no matter how much I wish I could. That's not the way being a mom is meant to be.
So I will remember...
Philippians 4:6-7 (The Message)
Don't fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God's wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It's wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.
