God is sovereign, even over the little things
When DH and I do go away for our anniversary, it will be a miracle. It will be a miracle because it's not everyday that you can leave behind 5 children and enjoy time with just one another. Another miracle will be that not only have I found someone to keep them, but that I will actually get on the plane and go. Worry is a sin that is a daily struggle for me. If I hear a story of a death or illness or any ill-will, I become convinced that the same thing is going to happen to me or someone in my family. God does not want us to worry. After all, He reminds us over and over again that He has a plan for each of our lives. He loves us. He even knows the number of hairs on our heads... and keeping track with mine must keep him busy since I am always losing hair! I must surrender my worry at His feet. I must hold out my hand and trust Him with my children and all of our safety. Do you struggle with this? Will you join me in praying against my worry over this trip? I so need His peace!!
