...but those who hope in the LORD 
will renew their strength. 
They will soar on wings like eagles; 
they will run and not grow weary, 
they will walk and not be faint.
Isaiah 40:31

I have to giggle as I sound redundant....

Life has been crazy...
...with work
...with the spice of personal drama...eeek
...too much personal drama that can make it feel like one has visited the Jerry Springer Show! Ok, not that bad (I am living in denial possibly, wink!), but I don't like drama...AT ALL people, so even a smidgen of disfunction or eeeeek, and I determine in my heart, soul and mind to find a glass half full and sing out-loud and smile deep with good ole joy, anyway!

I guess it all reminds one they are alive! Smile!

So, I am letting go of all the drama and setting 
my mind to where I know my certainty is!

All to say is that God is still amazing. I pray He is for you too.

I pray you know this too in the midst of hardship 
or singing with joy because you feel good.

He is the one I run to and hold onto, possibly tighter than 
God might wish as he whispers that I can rest in him and find real, solid joy. 

Wishing You and Amazing Weekend...
....and the kind of joy that makes you smile so much
 and so big that it makes your cheeks hurt!

...and all of God's children smiled up to Heaven and said a Big AMEN!

Mwah to you all!

Kristen, I just now read your post and I can't begin to tell you here, just how much God uses you! I read this very scripture, on the very day you were posting it, and was asking for prayer with Isaiah 40:31 for an ill child. That is no coincidence. I am truely blessed by your sweet tuned in spirit and your words on my blog as well. Keep on keeping on! Life does happen:) It is a wild and good ride........and drama happens girl. I am like you I like to run an even keel......LOL......what in the heck is that anyway? Like drinking jello with a straw!
Email me sometime at Mwah back! Cherie
