“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts . . .”
I have to stop right there and pray.
I’m not sure how to do that.
Be still and know I am God.
KNOW you are God. Believe you are bigger than my struggles and my worries. Stop the questioning, the whirling tizzy. And KNOW you are God. Bigger than me. Almighty One. All Powerful. Caring.
And You, God of the universe see.
“You were called to peace. And be thankful.”
CALLED to peace. Wow.
Help me (and all of us) to walk forward in peace this day.
Found these rambling thoughts as I looked through my devotional journal. They seemed appropriate, all that talk about peace and being still for today my baby girl marries her sweetheart. Weddings aren’t exactly know for quiet or stillness. I pray this one will be about knowing HIM as God, though. I scheduled this post way ahead, of course. Today I’m all about my girl. The celebration. Welcoming a son. Staring into my husband’s eyes and sharing this wedding day as no one but husband and wife–the MOM and DAD–can when their little girl proves once again she is all grown up and takes another plunge of maturity. If you’re reading this, think of us today. Cheer my baby on. Say a prayer that our celebration will be powerful, our shared love deep, and that the sun will shine on our party!
This is beautiful Paula. I sure hope you are planning on posting the wedding pictures and one of you in your new dress?? I am excited all the way to NM for you…
Thanks, Rosemary! It was an incredible day!! Most of the early pictures aren’t coming back with me in them. LOL It was Sarah’s day–and lots of shots with her sweet daddy walking her in for the grand entrance. Hopefully one will surface with my new dress soon.
