Peaceful Day


Okay, so it wasn’t a peaceful day. I got to work 35 minutes late, even though I left our house earlier than usual. There was an accident on the road ahead and I seriously moved about 100 feet in 30 minutes. Wowsers. When I got to school, I didn’t have time to do the stuff I wanted to do. Also, I didn’t sit down until I got in my car at 3:00. I was busy with stuff all day including during my breaks. We have a pumpkin decorating contest tomorrow and a door decorating contest due Friday. We also have a costume parade on Friday. I’m demoing website plans tomorrow and planning w/ Annie for our next small group…. So, pretty much the day was chaos.
But I felt this extreme peace all day. Like, even when bad things were happening, I just felt all calm and go-with-the-flow-ish (not a word, I know). Some things happened in my class that I knew were set-backs, but I was really chilled about it. Driving home from work in heavy Californian traffic (Minnesotans, you think you have it bad…) I was just singing and chilling.
What has caused this change? The difference between chest pains a few weeks ago to comfort and peace today? God. He’s the only one that can make someone in my job not be stressed out. And he absolutely blows me away with His blessings. I know that many of you have been praying for me and I’d like to thank you. God answered your prayers today. Today He filled my heart with warmth and peace and love. It was awesome.
