So, we are feeling a bit under the gun as my husband continues to look for a job. He is so good, something will come. But I admit to battling a little back of the head anxiety. As is usually the case I am a little too busy to over-focus on this. My youngest is having her 10th birthday and in our house double digits is a big deal! Birthday girls get a 10 for 10 slumber party. Thankfully, this child took it easy on me and is only having 4 girls sleepover, but the rest are coming to a party in the park. We decided to make it a Harry Potter party since she is a HUGE fan of Harry Potter as are we all. So here I am, making wands. Overjoyed that I found brooms for 50 cents each. Ok, so they are cinnamon brooms but they work. There is a lot of creative energy going into this party and there is very little time to get everything done…but no worries…it will all come together. Thank God for the energy that young kids require. If I were not otherwise engaged, I would probably be flipping out right now. But I simply don’t want to, I just want to believe that it will all work out in it’s time. The interviews have started, there is hope looming. Why worry? Every hair on my head type of thing! So when I feel a little like I am caving into worry, I repeat this scripture:Be anxious for nothing, but everything, through prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.I will never know how people make it without tapping into just that.
