Rhonnie Scheuerman’s Inspiration Station For All In Need This Morning
I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances, Philippians 4:11
Author Ashley Wiersma: My pity party was in full swing when my two- year old sidled up to me in the kitchen and asked, “Mommy where is your happy heart?” Prisca’s intuition nailed me ne. My heart was happy for so many reasons, even as my face betrayed my stress. It was happy because I was well loved and well sheltered, because I had food to eat every single day. It was happy because I lived in freedom in a free county, free to worship a good God .For all the important reasons, my heart was a happy as could be.
And yet….for all the small, less important reason, I was totally down in the dumps. I could confide in my child but really now, how do you explain deadlines and angst to someone who’ is not even three? I took the conundrum to heart. If I wanted to train my beloved daughter to keep the important things in life as the main things, then she needed to witness my doing the same.
I rolled back my shoulders, exhaled my immediate frustration, and and hugged little Prisca tight to my leg. Attitude adjustment accomplished: the half pint’s intervention had worked.
