Out of the Mouth of My Babe

Happy Friday Everyone!

I will share with you a little bit of wisdom I heard from my 12 year old daughter Jai on the way home from school -

Jai: Mommie - You know what we learned today in chapel?
Me: No baby girl, what did you learn?

Jai: We learned that you are not to worry about anything because you are a child of God. God takes care of the smallest birds and animals in the wilderness, so he will take care of you! God doesn't want you to worry about bills, or money, or anything, because he will take care of your needs, He wants us to give Him our best love and you cannot do that without faith.  Just trust God Mommie, and stop worrying so much. If God can make sure a little bird can eat, and people don't feed every bird every where, he will take care of what you need because he cares for you.

Me: Thank you Jai - Mommie really needed to hear that! (Choking back tears)
Jai: You're welcome Mommie, everything will be okay, you will see.

So I am going to work on doing just what Jai said, sometimes it's hard to remember the principals of the bible, life gets to be soo overwhelming and seems too much to bear.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding  Proverbs 3:5

Have a Blessed Friday and Weekend!
