I spent my last week of working from home...working from the lake. It was perfect and so much fun. If we could I think we would live down there, but reality calls and so we return to Birmingham. Mom and I and the kids were down there for 10 days and Justin and Dad came and went as they needed to work. Again, my time with the kids and my Mom was just perfect and a great way to wrap up my maternity leave time off!
My morning devotional couldn't have been more encouraging yesterday morning. It was exactly what I needed to
'Welcome Challenging Times as opportunities to trust Me. You have Me beside you and My Spirit within you, so no set of circumstances is too much for you to handle.... The way to walk through demanding days is to grip My hand tightly and stay in close communication with Me. Let your thoughts and spoken words be richly flavored with trust and thankfulness. Regardless of the day's problems, I can keep you in perfect peace as you stay close to Me.' From Jesus Calling Daily Devotional
Not that I have any particular huge problem, but it is a challenge to come back to work and it sure was assuring to be reminded that I have a Mighty Heavenly Father who wants me to hold His hand and confide in Him my thoughts, struggles, joy and everything in between. That is a huge peace of mind and it certainly was what pulled me through my day.
