wisest of all

After we say "Come Lord Jesus" before lunch and snack in my room at Preschool I say another prayer that the kids repeat usually starting with "Dear God thank You for all of these kids, I really love us to...thank You for..." and ending with "We love you Jesus and God." Today I let the kids all say their own prayers. They all thanked God for the sweetest and truest things. For "loving us just the way we are without having to change anything" and also for a lot of sweet things...

I should just have them pray every time. They are smarter and wiser than all of us.

today was really painful. friendships can be really painful and when one was today it also brought out everything I try to bury and not feel 

it saddens me that some of the most important friendships to me are broken and dying and painful

interesting things and sad things we go through here ... but I trust them all in God's hands.

and I know and thank Him that He is always here. my best friend
He's with me when I cry

I can't wait for the day when all His promises come true, when I'm finally with Jesus

"The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” -Deuteronomy 31:8

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." 
-Psalm 147:3

"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” 
-Revelation 21:4

"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
-Psalm 73:26

"Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things."
 -1 Corinthians 13:7


"Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold."

(girl scouts quote can still hear self chanting in head... but true. It is a sad thing to throw out, bury, or crush gold. Silver is just silver...)
