Well as many of you know it's just been one of those years... and luckily it's almost October. I was sitting in RS (I know somewhat of a shocker with my wild child these days...) and started singing the opening hymn with everyone else. All of the sudden the words of the hymn spoke to me and I knew it was an answer for the things I have been fasting and praying for:
Be still, my soul: The Lord is on thy side;With patience bear thy cross of grief or pain.Leave to thy God to order and provide; In ev’ry change he faithful will remain. Be still, my soul: Thy best, thy heav’nly Friend Thru thorny ways leads to a joyful end.
Be still, my soul: Thy God doth undertake To guide the future as he has the past. Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake; All now mysterious shall be bright at last. Be still, my soul: The waves and winds still know His voice who ruled them while he dwelt below.
I've often had hymn touch me more than most others, but today, today it was my little miracle.
PS I also got called to be a nursey leader and the 8 year old cub scout assistant today.... any good ideas out there...
