God's got it all under control

Well, readers, it’s been a while since my last blog. Sometimes life just goes by too fast. Sometimes I step back and wonder where did all the time go? Next week I will be teaching 3rd and 4th graders at VBS. I am excited and I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store. I know that he will do great things in the hearts of the kids next week. Kids now days are so smart and eager to learn more. The theme is The Big Apple (New York City). When I use to help do VBS at my dad’s church I did the music but I can’t wait to teach next week.

Today, God reminded me of how he is always with us. There are sometimes that I say “Lord have you been hearing me?” He reminded me that he hasn’t forgotten about me. He is right there with me through it all. It was kind of like he was saying “Savannah, my child, I’m listening to you, I haven’t forgot about you. I am listening to your every word. Just be still and know that I got this all under control.”

This past weekend was Father’s Day. I went home this past weekend to spend some time with my dad. He is such an amazing dad. He is always there when I need him. He prays for me, his love for me is unconditional. He has been there through the good times and the bad. There have been times in my life that I have had a broken heart, my dad reminds me that my prince charming is out there. He tells me that God has someone amazing out there for me, just to wait and see. He always said Savannah sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. Through the years I have seen how amazing my dad is. I love you dad!

I found this poem today in my Where the Sidewalk Ends book I thought I’d share:

My dad gave me one dollar bill
Cause I’m his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes- I guess he don’t know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just ‘cause he can’t see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes
And four is more than three!

And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head-
Too proud of me to speak!
