Last night I went away to a women's dinner and laughed until my sides hurt - I needed that! I was reminded that in Jesus "I am too blessed to be stressed." So, amidst all the chaos I kept recapturing my blessings, singing praises, smiling when I didn't feel like it, serving the neighbor, and smiling as I put my child back to bed for now the 6th time! I am too blessed as a believer to let these little things rob me of joy! Even putting the little darling back into her bed for the now 8th time.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, 5 who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. I Peter 1:3-5
