What a beautiful day! Everyone is still asleep and I am enjoying some quiet time on the deck. I love sittng out here watching the ducks on the pond, listening to the birds, and I even saw a hummingbird checking out my flowers this morning. It is not too hot or humid yet so I have to enjoy this while I can. I just read Psalm 46. The one thing that stood out to me this morning was “Be still, and know that I am God”. I have a hard time being still and just focusing on Him. That is something I am constantly working on. This morning was perfect though. I have been thinking about the first part of this year. We have gone through some tough times but I am finally seeing the good that has come out some of the situations. I feel like my family is stronger and I am a stronger person. I have learned to lean on God more and trust that He will take care of us. What an amazing feeling that is! I don’t know what the rest of the year will be like for us, probably very busy with school getting ready to start and me trying to homeschool for the first time. No matter what though, I can take it with my Father watching over me.
