The house is silent this morning, Dan went to work for a Retirement Party for one of his employees. Jenna is at school handing in her final paper. The silence hits me... and I burst into tears for just a second. I have been so happy for Jenna Dear and all that is going on in her life, that my emotions of her leaving have been apparently hiding just under the surface. They just revealed themselves in an unexpected flash. Wow...I hope this will not be a sad season for me. She has left before, I can do this. Good things are happening and I have so much to be thankful for.
Looks like I will be camping in Philippians 4 for a bit :]
Php 4:11 Actually, I don't have a sense of needing anything personally. I've learned by now to be quite content whatever my circumstances.
Php 4:12 I'm just as happy with little as with much, with much as with little. I've found the recipe for being happy whether full or hungry, hands full or hands empty.
Php 4:13 Whatever I have, wherever I am, I can make it through anything in the One who makes me who I am.
Even with my hands feeling empty Lord, let me find my contentment in You!
