It seems hard to be adventurous when we are told to stay home… So we took to the road and grabbed some lunch. We live in such a beautiful area! I am thankful for the rain that makes it all so green. Have you ever noticed all the different shades of green? God could have chosen just one color but He made so many!
Have you also noticed how the trees bloom? Even as life has slowed it seems to have happened overnight. There is so much beauty all around us. The budding, coming to life, rebirth is happening all around us right now.
Birds sing such happy tunes. It is like surround sound song birds and chirps in my backyard. I could sit back there for hours. I need to figure out how to set up a writing station with power outside as well as get a hammock for writing breaks and naps… Or just to lay outside reading. This is truly one of my dreams come true. It may be one part of my adventure… The part where the entire world slows down for a moment.
Until life and freedoms restored, I will bask in the miracles happening around me. This is only part of the adventure!
I keep hearing phrases like, “In these uncertain times” or ” These are uncertain times”… And I don’t like it. I get it but I don’t like it. I like knowing what is going on. I like having a sense of certainty.
Even though we don’t know what is going on… How severe things really are or aren’t… Even though life has changed drastically so suddenly, I do know one thing for certain: God is good and He can be your certainty. He can be your source of peace. He can be trusted!
We see in the gospels where Jesus commanded storms to be still… He healed the sick. He delivered people from oppressive demons. He never faltered, never stammered and certainly he never doubted. He was available even on the Sabbath to help someone.
If fear is making your heart race, your thoughts go round and round and stealing sleep, and moments of joy… Let God come. Peace. Be still. Fear go back to hell. Peace. Be still.
He is not scared. Let Him take care of you and your family. To any storm you face, He can and will speak,
