be still and know

psalm 46:10
"Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.

i have had a very busy last 
few days...
my family here last sunday
and hubs family here this
coming saturday.

getting the house in order
along with food prepping
yard fixing...

i still had time yesterday
for a few hours with my oldest
daughter and little grandson
to go down to boulevard park
to walk the boardwalk and play
in the sand...

as i sat there and the two of them
were strolling looking for star fish
i had time to sit and be still.
to look out at the ocean and 
be thankful.

to be in awe
of our beautiful surroundings.
the sky was so blue,
the clouds so puffy and cotton like...
the calling of the seagulls floating 
above me in the wind.

it is so hard for me
to NOT be happy. 

but, i also know
that depression is a real thing.
it can consume and take over lives.
making the person going through
it feel unloved and unforgiven-
the people who love
them, also feel helpless.

i am lifting a friend up today

praying that they will know 
that they are special. loved. forgiven.

to be still and know that

he loves them.
