Random Thursday

Today has been a rough day.  I got rear-ended with both of the babies in the car and we were all fine, but I was so angry with the man that hit us because he looked like he had been drinking and he hit and ran when he saw me get out of the car and call the police on the phone.  I was so angry!

Then, almost as soon as I got home, I got a call from a good friend of mine who had some difficult news to tell me.  I felt like I didn't know what to say.  I was too wrapped up in my own feelings and anger that I couldn't focus on opening my heart to God to be able to minister to her.  I feel like my issue of the hit and run is so inconsequential compared to her news, and I felt so small that I didn't have the words to say.

So, I will pray for her and her family, and I will also pray for the man who hit me and whatever issues that he was having, and if you would join me in those prayers, I would greatly appreciate it.

I will also share with you some pictures that made me smile again, and I hope that they make you smile, too.

Sniffing the flowers!

This was back in the day when Elizabeth and I lived in HI. 

Riding on the beach was awesome!  There is no match for that feeling.

It was so beautiful there.  Elizabeth and I mucked stalls in exchange for the privilege of riding the horses.
I feel more peaceful just looking at these pictures.  I hope you enjoyed them, too, and I'll see you tomorrow for 5 Minute Friday (and Elizabeth's birthday!  She's going to be a teenager!  Where did the time go?!?!?!?!)
