Need to Talk - Don't Know What to Say

The above is one of my favorite quotes from Grey's Anatomy. Do you remember how great it was being a kid? All we had to worry about was making sure we were in by the time the street lights came on.....making sure we strung the right pattern with our macaroni beads....just all the random things that then seemed huge. I wish that was what was huge now.

But now we're grown-ups...and with being a grown-up comes grown-up crap....death, infidelity, divorce, disallusion, disappointment, illness, loss.....some of these have touched my life....some have not....some have in a round about way......

I look at my husband and my kids and I praise God for my life. And then I'm on my knees praying for the hedge of protection He can provide them from 'the flaming arrows of the evil one.' I am just overwhelmed lately about the spiritual battle that is raging around us.

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
Ephesians 6:12
But I still am going to keep praise on my lips because there's hope. I am finding peace in reading the Psalms right now. Songs of sorrow and joy....and hope.

Amen! We will have times of great song, health, perfection, abundance, happiness, and Glory...I can't wait to see you in heaven and then we won't have to wait for the street lights to come on when we play! Praise God for salvation! These minutes on this earth are nothing in comparison to Eternity...and with that I lean faithfully on God and His promises. Thanks for the thought provoking blog! Amen to keeping Praise on our lips!
