Keeping a quiet heart....

My heart has stopped pounding and the questions have settled down. I am trying to rest in the winds of change that are blowing and let the breeze be reassuring instead of frightening. He is holding my heart tenderly and calling for me to rest in His shadow. This is a good place to be, instead of flailing around frustrated. I want to do nothing that will take away from the specialness (is that a word?) of who Pearl was....only be a part of the plans that God has for our family because she is a part of us.

Keeping a quiet heart is a good place to be, thinking on the things that are true and and standing on the firm foundation that is beneath my feet.

Hearing your heart is so special. And seeing my heart come out in your words just means so much...makes me feel a little more normal...whatever that is!

hoping that today finds a happy, quiet heart, resting in Truth... that you are loved, that you are taken care of, that Pearl will never be forgotten...

Thinking a lot about you, and Pearl, recently. Keeping you close in my heart and in my prayers, Laura.

Trying to keep that quiet heart, too,
Kari
