My heart is really heavy lately. Seems like all those I love have major things going on with them. Love it hurts so much but without love in our lives we would have no relationships. I know the more we love the bigger our hearts become. Those who know me know God has given me the biggest heart. I care so much for those around me especially those I love. I care so much for the children in my school but I also know they care about me as well. In our class we have a high five thing going on each time they see me they come over for a high five. We started it during Covid and they have kept it up.
Sometimes I wish I didn’t feel so many emotions. Lately I’ve been feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders. I realized I gave no control over what happens to those I love but I can be there for them no matter what. I can pray for them. Today I was reminded of my favorite verse ” but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar in wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31. God uses eagles to let me know He’s in charge and He’s got this. Today I got to help my family and despite it being so windy today and it’s crazy out there. I got to pray and hang out with those I love.
Ever since I moved it’s been hard financially for me I never seem to be able to catch up. It feels super overwhelming and instead of keeping it all bottled up I asked people to pray about it. God always provides and money always comes so for that I’m truly blessed. I realized I can’t change cancer, Covid, dementia, or whatever other stresses I feel but I can reach out to God for His peace. I have amazing friends that often step up just when I need them. I’m blessed for so many things.
I realized that when you count your blessings you can only feel gratitude in your heart. ♥️ Love is powerful and yes it hurts but it’s so worth it. We need to love more and be kinder to each other. I love our school it is all about unity, respect and diversity. We all matter no matter who we are. We need to be loved just how we want to be loved. Thank you to all those who are in my life that make a difference in my life everyday.
