My fingers snuggle into my fuzzy gloves.
His perfect peace settles my soul.
Bluebonnets patiently await my notice.
A quiet where silence is unsettled only by the wind and bird songs.
Nature is deliberate and impatient.
I called to you Lord in my distress and you answered me and put me in a spacious place.
The Lord is with me I will not be afraid!
Psalm 118 v 5
Driving through a neighborhood near our home we noticed a young, pony-tailed mom plunked down on the sidewalk happily pulling weeds.
My husband joked that she looks like she’s settled in for the long haul.
What led to her weed pulling? Why on this cold, wet and dreary afternoon?
Maybe, just maybe, it’s as a good friend’s very active young son regularly tells her, in his moments of exasperation,
“I’m going outside to explode!”
We all need a little fresh air.
Quiet waiting before the Lord in prayer will give Him a chance to change your mood.
The situation may not change, but you will have changed for the better in spite of the situation.
