Donate to help the Petra Anderson family

A friend of mine knows Petra (see my post about the Aurora shootings), and has provided a link for readers who would like to help the family. While Petra continues to recover very well, her medical bills are extremely high, and her mother is also being treated for cancer. If you can help their family with a donation, please do!

The Master Plan

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up; my eyes are not raised too high; I do not occupy myself with  things too great and too marvelous for me. – Psalm 131:1

As a new mom, I was terrified to care for my beautiful infant son. The responsibility far outweighed my confidence, and I was sure I would ruin his life before his first birthday. I rarely simply relaxed, gazing at his sweet face and enjoying the miracle. Sometimes I managed to, but more often my stomach was in knots as I fretted over my inability to protect him from my mistakes. My driven temperament spurred on by motherly love, I didn’t even question my need to do the job perfectly. I tried in vain to appease the implacable results idol.

Stopping the Wave

A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense. – Proverbs 19:11

Did you see that viral video of the two menopausal women who get in a car fight? One of them bumps the other’s door and doesn’t apologize, and the tension escalates so much that they end up wrecking each other’s cars! Pretty funny – until it nearly happens to you!
