Broken Days and the Promises of Rainbows

Some days everything just seems to be broken.  That was yesterday.  I was so glad to finally be able to bury my head in a pillow and close my eyes for the night.  I could bore you with all the melodramatic details, but that would just be reliving all the frustrations of the day.  I am just ready to have some questions answered concerning this move thing.  I hate it when my kids whine, and I don't want to be a whiner either.  No, I want to throw an outright fit and scream and yell at the top of my lungs, but I don't.  That isn't what is needed so I will refrain...for now. 

  I had my windows opened during the night last night.  This morning I awoke to the singing of birds.  Instantly I was reminded that if the Lord takes care of the birds, then how much more will He care for me.  I smiled and crawled out of bed and knew that His promises are still  alive and well.  It has been said so many times that to have a rainbow we must first have the rain.  During both the time of rain as well as the beauty of the rainbow, God is still in control.  I hope I remember that throughout the day!!!!

grace and peace,
