Have you ever caught yourself getting so involved in something that it overwhelmed you in such a way it was no longer fun, but stressful? This is what I mean; there are so many things that are enjoyable in life, but then that joy can very quickly turn into frustration if you take in too much at once. Things like church involvement, mission work, job activities and spending time with family, especially with children (young or old) should take stress out of life, not add to it!
That kind of time is getting less and less as my daughter, Christina, has announced her engagement to be married in September, 2010. Yep, just what I needed, one more thing to worry about! But, I know God will lead me and get me through everything that is thrown my way. I know my faith is so often challenged and that is a good thing. It keeps me humble and shows me He is in control and is always there for me. So, the key to all of this madness is to simply let God be in control and enjoy His peace at doing so.
So I decided there is nothing better than to enjoy food and drink and to find satisfaction in work. Then I realized that these pleasures are from the hand of God. For who can eat or enjoy anything apart from him? God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him…
