pining for peace ...
Tags: Life, lemons, lemon still life photo, vintage pottery, cottage style decorating

The door to my office is closed.
It's blocking out two twenty-somethings
who are re-arranging a bedroom.
And bringing a 52" TV up from the basement.
And moving a big dresser.
And chairs from one room to another.
And complaining because the grapes are mushy.

I'm feeling a little sour and longing for some sweet.
Thank goodness for doors that close.
And peace that remains despite circumstances.
And the knowledge that this too shall pass.

All is quiet for the moment.
Ben and Rebecca are down in the kitchen.
Eating my food.
The massive TV has landed in its new home.

I hear the tea kettle whistle.
Snow is beginning to fall.
It's going to be okay.
Peace will return.
I know it will.

 LOL! The thought that, "this too shall pass" has brought me through many a tough time! Keep hanging in there!

 Just when life seems to be going in the right direction along comes ...a bump in the road, our peace disturbed, another challenge to our faith..will we do all for God or does it have to be my way for me to have peace? What is God saying to you dear friend? Put your hope in God and don't let the devil steal your joy... This too shall pass...what are you willing to do for God's glory in the meantime? Much, much love
