Peace, Be Still

I am loving the weather last night and this afternoon.

A summer rain storm is PERFECT!

I got up at 5:30am and sat out on the porch,

Wishing my dad was there too, just like he was when I was young.

But I sat alone and it was still beautiful to behold.

I went back to bed and waited for Emma to get up,

Thinking she'd be afraid of the lights and sound.

But she never did.

This morning when I asked her why she didn't come get in bed with me, she said

Cuz, I just said "Peace, Be Still," and it stopped.  So I was fine.

I asked where she learned that phrase.

She said, "Primary -- It's what Jesus said on the water."

Heart . Melted .

Here's some photos from this afternoons rain shower --

no worries. just a little teary now. As I read your post title, I thought "Oh, that's what we taught in Primary Sunday, cool. Wendy is so in tune." Little did I know, it was actually a little girl who was moved by the lesson that was taught. SO awesome to know that children actually soak up what we so stressfully prepare to deliver. *blessings* Love you!
