unexpected changes

"I long to dwell in Your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of Your wings." Psalm 61:4

Special programs, schedules, parties and other events came to a screeching halt last week.  In it's place sledding, sipping cocoa, making snow cream and other unscheduled activities quickly took its place.  The recent snow storm reminded me of our inability to control life.  It also showed how giving up control can produce unexpected pleasure and delight.

Are you holding onto something tightly now, refusing to relinquish control?  May the recent snow storm remind you of the need to sometimes let go.  A change can be refreshing and freeing.  Is there another storm on your horizon?  With God as our LORD and shelter, no matter what happens in our life, peace and joy will surely be our sweet reward.

have a peace-filled day!
