encouragement.

So lately most of the people I love have been going through rough waters.  Like legit hard stuff.  You know LIFE.  loss.  failure.  stress.  So how on earth do we cope?  

Small simple things that force you to smile placed in your life by God cause He ADORES you!

Sunsets.
Spiderwebs blowing in the wind with a ray of sun shining through them just so.  
A frog on the sidewalk.
A luna moth on your steering wheel.  
Sunrise.  
A smily face in the stars that you can find everywhere you go sometimes even on a cloudy night.  

He sees you.  He loves you.  He knows.  

Breathe deeply and say to yourself it's just a season...  It's the truth.  He gives you strength.  

He gives joy.

My dad says this all the time when I go all emotional doubtful irrational girl on him:  
"For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord.  Plans to PROSPER you not harm you.  Plans to give you a HOPE and a FUTURE!"  Jeremiah 29:11  =]  He's right.  
 
ALSO!  There is a time and season for every activity under the heavens.  Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 says so directly and beautifully.  It's like a soothing poem...  

There is a time for everything, 
   and a season for every activity under the heavens:
 2 a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,
 
3 a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,
 
4 a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,
 
5 a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
 
6 a time to search and a time to give up,
   a time to keep and a time to throw away,
 
7 a time to tear and a time to mend,
   a time to be silent and a time to speak,
 
8 a time to love and a time to hate,
   a time for war and a time for peace.

So be strong loves it's but a season.  Plus at this moment there is little we can do save for to trust in him.  

Peace out girl scouts.  =] <3
