still turning cards

I continue to make my way through the deck of "Daily Reflections" cards I received last month.

Today...

"Let the peace of God rule in your hearts."
~Collosians 3:15


Seriously...I should have flipped/read this before the kids left for school. Oh my, was it one of those mornings. I'll take full blame...shoulda never let them stay up till 9:30 to finish that movie they were watching. But it was a cute one...and they seemed "settled." Perfectly good idea at the time.
Anyhow...lots of "unpeacefulness" going on this morning...arguing, tears, even some boys getting physical with the nudges and knocks they like to torment each other with. Good grief.

Peace. Yes, please. Hope their day at school goes better. The younger kids here are just waking up, much better rested than the big siblings that passed through the kitchen before them...the day is already brighter here. Could be that my coffee is kicking in too...or perhaps... the reminder of God's peace, the kind of peace that is lasting and true, is settling in.

Praise God. Prince of Peace.

Make me a channel...

THANK YOU so much for posting this! I too have written about some "ugly" mornings, and there are few things that make me feel as unsettled as those do. I so appreciate knowing I'm not the only one who has those mornings, nor am I the only one who feels the regret about them!
