So thankful that the Lord is in control.

I feel like yesterday was a test.
Instead of yelling "Mayday!" as the plane was going down, I feel like I just let it crash and then watched it burn.

It was a day that tried my patience in a lot of ways and left me with a few wretched, "why me's."  

None of my problems are significant in the grand scheme of things...really.  I was just tired and grouchy and instead of being patient and long suffering with the tiny problems of the day, I magnified them and whined and complained.

This morning I resolved to be better.  I prayed to have peace in my heart and in my words.

 While working on my lesson for Young Women's this week, I came across this scripture which spoke to my soul and has bouyed me up.

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; 
and lean not unto thine  own understanding. 
In all they ways acknowledge him, 
and he shall direct they paths.

sometimes I am more than grateful the Lord is in control, sometimes I'm a little frustrated that he thinks I can handle his trials. ;)
Love you, remember I'm here.

I was reading about miracles this morning in my scriptures. Every time I feel the spirit, I feel like that is a miracle. Sounds like you had your very own.
