“Goodbye Skeeter! No time for that!” – Morgan Vice
One of my favorite spots in the world is my own backyard. Nothing fancy there. It’s just a peaceful little space to breathe and unplug. Recently, while enjoying some summer solitude, Morgan swatted a mosquito, and let it know just how she felt about it disturbing her peace.
EGO can be a real peace stealer. Being Morgan’s mom, fulltime buddy and caregiver, is a labor of the heart that requires me to be vigilant to guard my thoughts. If not, I can get the “Poor, Pitiful, Me’s”. I can get all caught up in worrying about myself, and the things I think I might be missing out on, becoming jealous and envious of how easy someone else’s life appears to be. I can become narrow minded and judgmental of others. If I’m not careful, I can get so self centered, and hard hearted, that I can’t hear God’s voice above all my noise.
Morgan is counting on me. Don’t tell her, but I’m only human. I’m so thankful God is God, and I’m not. I can tell when my ego needs swatting. I know it’s time to take that noise to the backyard, and put it in its place. Goodbye Ego! No time for that! 😉
There’s nothing more peaceful than placing my heart back into God’s very capable hands. According to Jeremiah 29:11, He has plans specifically designed for me, for Morgan, for each one of us; “Plans to prosper me, and not to harm me, plans to give me hope and a future.”
Until Next Time,
Know The Hope!
