it's a God thing...

Happy Saturday everyone! :)

I hope you all are enjoying your day as much as I'm enjoying mine... 
I'm actually getting ready to head over to my sister-in-law's for a little "spa day," which I'm very excited about.
Daddy is much obliged to watch B all day... ;)

First, I would like to share with you a favorite Pin of mine.

Sometimes we think we have control over situations, when in actuality we truly do not...
Instead, maybe it's better that we sit back and realize that God is teaching us something, or showing us His way through a particular crisis. Sometimes you have to search for the answer to that question... But it can give you a whole new perspective!
I am one who has a lot of trouble with this because I am such a control freak... But I always feel so filled with peace when I stop and realize that I am loved by Him, and that my faith in Him will help me overcome whatever problems I am facing!

Have a lovely weekend!

Love this! I have realized this to be especially true with some of the hardships my friends are enduring. It's hard in a lot of respects, but God's love shines through and we're reminded that miracles are not something of the past but in the here and now as well.

Enjoy your spa day!!
