Safe in Daddy's Arms


This has been a very hard week at our house. Many things have been going on. The kids have spent a lot of the week at friend's houses because Joel and I have been very busy. This morning both kids woke up with runny noses and I think just plain worn out from the busy past few weeks we have had. The past few days Squirrel has just needed her Daddy. He got up one morning at 2am to rock her. This morning she needed Daddy again. As you can see from the picture Joel was very busy, on the computer and phone, but that didn't stop Squirrel. She curled up on Daddy where it was safe and fell fast asleep. This reminds me of Psalm 91:4 "...and under His wings shalt thou trust..." I have had to trust in my Heavenly Father this week like never before and rest in His arms. Just like Squirrel resting in her Daddy's arms I have rested in my Father's arms. He is the only one who can see us through the troubles and trials of this world. Please remember that when it seems like the world is caving in around you that you can rest in the Heavenly Father's arms.

How do people that have no faith get through these trials Melanie?

I am so thankful that I can hide under His wings :)
