"Ask God for anything you want... but be content with what he gives you." Joyce Meyer
I am a "Why" person. I want answers..... I think we all tend to be "Why" people at different times of our lives. Obviously, when we're little.. "Why Mommy". But I'm talking why does God let bad things happen to good people?.......Why do little babies like Matthew have to die?
I'm reading a great book by Joyce Meyer called, I Dare You, Embrace Life with passion. There is a chapter that talks about stop asking why, because God knows everything. She talked about how sometimes we have these plans all made and then they fall apart and we think we are in control, but it was God's hands all along. She talked about the frustration of a driver driving 10mph under the speed limit.... Nothing is more irritating! But in reality maybe God is using that slow poke to protect us from an accident. This was like a light bulb moment for me. I think of Matthew and how he was so much healthier at birth and them he was gone. I don't know how many times I have thought maybe this was God's way of protecting me from the 2am knock on the door...You son's been in an accident.
"Ask God for anything you want... but be content with what he gives you."
On a much lighter note here are some Labor Day Pictures from our house. Carly spent most of the day at the water spicket playing with the trickle of water! Enjoy!
