All I Got for Today

9:36 PMHeather

Ya know how we call Wednesday "hump day" because if we pass that hump, the weekend is straight ahead?  Well, this week is my official "hump week" of the summer.  We've had an amazing summer and made some lifelong memories.  But there are some things weighing heavy on my heart that I cannot share.  And, my children have hit that, "hey, it's been fun but we've had about all the togetherness we can stand" point.  I realized today that this is a typical midsummer funk week for our little family.  We usually rally to finish strong as the summer winds down.

And, so today, this is all I've got for you.  Mulling over the stress, trauma, drama, and heart-heaviness, I am reminded of my oldest son Collin's favorite Scripture passage and this picture I took in Hawaii that best sums it up.

 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
   where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD,
   the Maker of heaven and earth.
 3 He will not let your foot slip—
   he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
   will neither slumber nor sleep.
 5 The LORD watches over you—
   the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
   nor the moon by night.
 7 The LORD will keep you from all harm—
   he will watch over your life;
8 the LORD will watch over your coming and going
   both now and forevermore. 
Psalm 121 

Whatever today has held for you--or even what is looming for tomorrow...lift your eyes to the mountains.  Remember your help comes from the Maker of heaven and of earth--the Maker of YOU!
