A Mother’s Heart – Weeds, May Ponderings

“April showers bring May flowers”  The gardens are all one by one coming to life, the work in the garden prior to our accident in June and for years prior shows true in what comes back every year.   Darwin has been caring for the yard alone since October and as always is my knight in shining armour doing a wonderful job.   “fresh air… aww the gardening life.

pexels-photo-59753.jpegI have had to do a lot of emotional weeding as of late.   It is just so easy to get wrapped up in frustration, anger (oh boy the anger), disappointment and just plain tired.   Sometimes the weight of these past months have brought my heart to my shoes and it comes a long with a pretty stinking attitude.   I have to check myself on the weeds that hang around in my head. Negativity, fear, frustrations and well… you can guess the rest because I bet you have been where I am right now at some point.  Today, I have to choose to see that God is here with me, even when I have tears pouring down my cheeks.  Lord, this is hard.

pexels-photo-1031188.jpegJob walked a journey that I am thankful I have not, I would never begin to compare my life with his at all!   The book of Job shows however, how God is in control, that it is ok to be honest with God how you feel, truly feel. And that our restoration comes from Him in due time in His way so, I must continue to keep my eyes on Him.  He is my hope, my peace and my faithful Father.

Hugs n Prayers
