 We've all been there a time or two -

"Frustration is the difference between expectation and reality" -So much truth to this quote that a dear friend once told me We expect one thing it becomes something else completely It's not what we agreed to And it's so easy to become angry You try to be strong Hold your head up high But your strength is waning No one knows how much you cry Life has rearranged The plan that you had It' not quite how you imagined And it's making you sad Please know you aren't alone Your so often on my mind I pray earnestly for you That HIS peace you will find I know I can't fix it I can't make it all better But I can love, hug, and pray And let you know we're in it together You may not have known the awe that I've had At your poise and acceptance When I would have been mad But you need to know There is a breaking point for all No one withstands pressure With out as much as a fall What you have been doing Takes so much for just one I know you can do it It's just so hard to do alone There is only one place That your strength can be renewed He's waiting right now His eyes right on you Kneel at his feet Just lay there in stillness Don't worry about words Or the need to impress All he wants is you Tired, defeated, and mad He already knows Each disappointment that you've had Right now you're exhausted You don't see an end But you cling to the hope That your faith will not bend My greatest desire Is for peace and sweet rest In the midst of the tumult Your heart will be blessed You are so very loved More than you know And your burdens are shared You are never alone

Beautiful. (Seems to be what I say in every comment I leave.) :)

I especially loved this portion:
There is only one place
That your strength can be renewed
He's waiting right now
His eyes right on you

Kneel at his feet
Just lay there in stillness
Don't worry about words
Or the need to impress

All he wants is you
Tired, defeated, and mad
He already knows
Each disappointment that you've had


Your heart for God is amazing... I wish I knew you in real life.

And congratulations on your new bun in the oven. :) God bless and keep you both.
