This week my heart is reeling from things that are outside of my control.  Two of my students are battling with sickness, one with Crohn's and the second with substance abuse.  I want to wrap both of these girls up in my arms and tell them how much God loves them, values them and honours them. As an online teacher I submit in prayer, and send my loving thoughts their way.  God will you provide, will you  provide, please heal these girls in your timing...and be with their families in their pain.  Lord please meet them in their needs.  Amen.

Secondly although minor, all of our computers went on the blink, and I was powerless to do anything with the problem.  For two days my kids groaned from withdrawal- yes this may be a good thing:) However with one homeschooled son, 2 daughters at university and my work fully online I was literally clutching at straws, and trying to talk sense with our server.  God has an amazing way of intervening when you are faced with a choice.  You can give over to anger, and impatience or you can submit.  With a humble heart I am learning more to submit and wait for Him to return  answers rather than repeating in my own strength.  This morning resigned to God's timing, I handed over my computer to Him.  Needless to say it was restored without technical intervention within an hour ( I still don't know what happened), and it  might  not be forever but for now that is good!   Praise Him!!  I pray that God will work in my heart daily to restore all of my imperfections, and need for control.  Amen!

The Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.

--Reinhold Niebuhr

Fr Bertram Griffin -- 1932-2000
Requiescat in Pace
Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3, 5-6
