Finding a "New Normal"

I've borrowed the phrase from someone who made a comment on Shirley's blog about one of her posts but it hit me as what I guess I'm looking for. And I've decided that I am way too hard on myself. I mean my life took on a huge change and maybe and only maybe when things are lined up just as they are supposed to be, then I will find a "new normal." And I'm guessing there is no set time for that. It happens when it happens. And not a minute before. In the meantime I am thankful for my kids who have enveloped me into their home and allowed me this time. How special is that?

I think you're on to something there, Robbin. Sometimes we just have to sit back and wait. Or in the words of my mom's favorite Bible verse "Be still, and know that I am God." We know you are in God's hands, He is in charge, and only He will bring things around, and He'll do it in his own time, not ours. Until then, we learn patience and just wait.

I pray you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your kids....and, yes, it was wonderful of them to give you the time and space to heal. Blessings to all of you!

Our ladies class talked about being still and knowing God this past Sunday morning. I want to be in control so badly, that sometimes it's really hard to sit still and listen to what is in my heart.

But the older I get, the less control I seem to have over anything.

The 'new normal' will open itself to you when you least expect it, and you'll wonder why you haven't felt it before.

You've come so far over the last couple of years. I wish you peace.
