Not to worry

"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?  Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?" ~Luke 12: 25,26
Dear Queen B, 
You are a worrier.  You have too much on your mind.  From morning to night your mind is pulled in many directions of worry: what meals to prepare, what clothes each will wear, what activities will consume the day.....what costs too much, what's worth too little, where is the bathroom, who has the toys....when is the next test, who needs naptime and rest, were the bills paid on time...The world runs frantically after all these things.  But God knows what you need.  

Don't miss this present moment by longing for the future or wishing for a better time and place!  There is a Creator God who walks with you now, in the present!  He is with you, to guide your feet in the way of peace (Luke 1:79).  

Now that your mind is quiet you can direct it in the way it should go, the Way of the Lord:  
"Seek His Kingdom and all these things will be given to you as well.  Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the Kingdom.  So sell your possessions and give to the poor.  Provide purses for yourself that will not wear out, a treasure in Heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."  ~Luke 12:32-34
Happily Ever,
Queen B
