Quiet Time

To say that the last two weeks have been tough would be a MASSIVE understatement! We've had croup, sinus and ear infections make the rounds, which has kept us home from church for the past two weeks. : ( The Man has worked a lot of hours, I have gotten little to no sleep. And conflict has been EVERYWHERE!

However,this morning on Facebook a sweet friend reminded me of this:
"If you think your life is bad just remember that there are people that have it WAY worse than you.... And you should be thankful for all the blessing that GOD has given you".... 
It was a small smack upside the head that I really needed today. I mean hello, the entire Eastern seaboard has it way worse than I do right now, not to mention everything else going on in the world. I have tunnel vision sometimes and only focus on myself (don't we all??). I'm so thankful that God is patient with me and gently reminds me to humble myself!
So, thank you to my friend Tara for posting and Lord please keep me ever mindful of the needs of others.
And to those of you affected by Irene, I am praying for you today.
Psalm 138:7
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life; you stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes, with your right hand you save me.

Psalm 46:1-2 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.
