When the world tips wildly,
and not one more thing can be crammed onto the lines of this life,
thoughts swirling….and life feels crazy dizzy.
When I can’t take one day at a time, because the days they rush.
The minutes swirl by at a rapid pace,
like white water crashing on the rocks of time.
The realization happens slowly, almost as a calming whisper.
Be still, and know that I am God.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33
Today, even in the deep, white water, I am thankful:
*cats sleeping so peacefully
*cold green tea
*fresh new sheets
*a favorite magazine
*songs that make the soul sing
*looking forward to family visiting
*a freshly mowed front yard
*bright yellow dandelions against the emerald green
*fenced back field with a background of clear blue sky and white clouds
*God who gives peace, even in the midst
