We were completely without water (the pump to our spring broke on Wednesday so we've been without water since then). I was missing my husband like crazy. My car all but completely ran out of oil (and I'm that kind of girl - I need my husband for stuff like that!). The cows got out on my watch (literally - we have cows...and they got out). I had a huge to-do list and only a little bit of time.
I've been exhausted, out of patience, and desperately grasping for some of the peace that God promises I already possess.
My children got off the school bus yesterday and into a car where they found their Mom in tears just trying to survive the rest of the day.
God gave me peace through those amazing kids who helped with the animals, helped me get wood up on the porch, helped unload groceries, and helped with the baby while I finished countless other things as well. He gave me peace through my sweet sister
Today I was able to simply focus on clinging to His promises.
I knew that my husband was praying for me (and probably for the mental health of our children...).
My Dad got our pump back in working condition so I was able to (HAPPILY!) do dishes and laundry and bathe my children.
The cows didn't get out.
The baby is still smiling.
God is good - even during weeks that I have to dig a little deeper to find His peace I'm thankful that He is always faithful - and that He always makes good on His promises.
