Small things

Have you ever had one of those days that you feel the weight of the world on your shoulders?!?!

Today was one of those days for me.

It's actually been a hard month for me. I've had to cope with the death of my cousin, death of a friend, serious problems in the hubby's family, disappointment in people I never would have guessed would have let me down, harsh words spoken against my hubby, and now our moving process...it's been a long and overwhelming month

Most days were okay, but today was one of the hardest days of all.

I cried out to the Lord: "Please give me something today...something special, something to help ease the pain and the weight I'm carrying right now."

In his amazing grace and mercy, he did just that! He's never let me down, and he's promised to always be with me. I've been teaching the little's Sunday school class about how "He cares" and how timely this study has come! As I prepare for the lessons each week, my heart is comforted knowing He really cares about me!
He cares about even the smallest thing!

Isn't it amazing to know that HE cares?!?!

The words to this song have been running through my mind :

Does Jesus care when my heart is pained, 
Too deeply for mirth and song,
As the burdens press, and the cares distress
And the way grows weary and long?

Oh yes, He cares, I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares.

I was so thrilled to receive a sweet unexpected package from my brother. In there was the sweetest letter, and this beautiful souvenir he got me when he was visiting Niagara Falls! Isn't it beautiful! It was just another simple reminder that God cares for me! I received this beautiful gift on a day that I really needed a boost! Amazing that God let this package arrive in the perfect timing!
We serve such an amazing God! I'm so comforted tonight that He cares for me. When the day is long and hard, He cares for me and He cares for you too, my friend!

"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." I Peter 5:7
