Growing With The Changes

    Maybe you, like myself, have struggled with comparisons:  to your past self, or others whom you respect.  Comparing our prayer life or Bible reading/study habits to that of others, isn't always beneficial.  Often, we can find ourselves discouraged. 

     In this chat, I share what I am finally learning in regards to my prayer and Bible study life as I develop in my role as "mama."  Maybe the lessons in learning, as well as adaptations to this new season in life, can be of help to you!

I Can Cry

I can miss her.

When I see the clothes she got them, I can softly cry, knowing she'll never see them in them.

When I capture moments, and can't share them with her...I can cry.

When I want to tell her some new thing they're learning or doing, but can't...I can cry.

I can cry at the loss:  of a friend, cheerleader, supporter, nana, mother. 

I can cry, knowing they'll never experience growing up with their nana excitedly cheering for them in life.

I can cry, knowing they'll never again hear her enthusiastic voice on the other end of the call.

I can cry, wishing we'd had more time.

I can cry.

"Please, Be Still!"

    Sometimes, I wonder if God gets a chuckle out of us. Case in point: my son and I had a discussion about the Bible account of Jesus calming the stormy seas. He found it rather fascinating that all the Lord had to do was say: "Peace, be still." Mark 4:39

     Well, a while back, we were experiencing quite the storm.  My sweet boy comes over to me and holds me, telling me:  "Don't worry, Mama, I've got you.  I won't let the storm hurt you."   Talk about serious heart-melt!  

     However, here is one of the more precious statements I heard him say: "Please, be still," as he held out his hand toward the storm.  Then, looking at me, he said, "Don't worry, Mama.  I'll stop the storm."  Then, turning back towards the window he said,  "Please, be still."
