As we were on our last flight of our trip home from El Paso (still having a 3 hour car ride ahead of us) I became overwhelmed with gratitude. I was holding my daughter as she slept peacefully. My son and husband seated behind us were enjoying each others' company, and I was fighting back tears. I had spent at least a month wrestling with discontentment. Do you ever do that? It seems to be something that visits me every so often. It's not that I hadn't been thankful for things, or that I had spent the whole month sad. It's just I hadn't rested in God's provision, His timing, and all that goes with it. But as I sat thousands of miles in the air I felt His peace surround me. Now don't get me wrong I still have a few things I will continue to bring before the throne, but I am at peace whatever the outcome. Wow...that is still a little hard to say or type. Still I know that there is more freedom in handing over control to the One who knows me the best...better then I even know myself. So as I enter into the Christmas Season I have a renewed since of peace. What a great way to celebrate the birthday of my Savior.
