One Thousand Gifts (continued)

"In His hand is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind" 
(Job 12:10).

There are some things that I do not get too stressed about (such as my upcoming ultrasound and test and our next adoption) because they are completely out of my control.  Other things, however do cause a bit of stress in my life because they seem to be "in my control'.  However, I need to remind myself that God holds ALL things in His sovereign hands and everything is in His control.  I need to commit EVERY area of life to prayer and give it ALL to Him who has in His hand "the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind".

Giving thanks that He holds ALL things in His sovereign hands!!
Continuing to give thanks...

I never really thought of being able to relax for the things out of my control and not for the things seemingly IN my control. Hmmm... you've got me thinking.
Fabulous photo of you and Paul!
