It's A Small World

Talk It Over With God
You're worried and troubled about everything,
Wondering and fearing what tomorrow will bring.
You long to tell someone, for you feel so alone,
But your friends are all burdened with cares of their own.
There is only one place and only one Friend
Who is never too busy, and you can always depend
On Him to be waiting, with arms open wide,
To hear all the troubles you came to confide.
For the heavenly Father will always be there
When you seek Him and find Him at the altar of prayer.
Helen Steiner Rice
(From the book: "God's Promises from A to Z")

There seems to be a lot of things to think about lately, not only within my circle of family and friends but for our country and the world. I believe that being so inter-net-connected has contributed to the seemingly smallness of our world.

We always have to keep the time we set aside to spend it with God or else we can be overwhelmed. God is always the same, never has changed and He never will! And He walks before us, guiding us. I want to follow Him, not someone else, I hope you do too.

"In the day of prosperity be joyful, and in the day of adversity consider; God has made the one as well as the other, so that many may not find out anything that will be after him." Ecclesiastes 7:14

Ha! Is that you with the sunglasses? What a great shot of all the "kids."

I love that closing Scripture from Ecclesiastes. It's important to remember God knows there will be both good days and bad. :~D
