let their flesh be renewed like a child’s; let them be restored as in the days of their youth’—
then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God’s face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being."

I get tired of the brotherly friction. I get so aware of it that I fear it is all I hear and see. Sometimes I think it takes a dozen kind interactions between them to strip away the rust of the ungenerous ones from my senses. But when I get weary my reaction is to withdraw, to get frustrated, to lay my head down and sigh -- but I have got to be more. I am the mother. And He promises that He will allow rivers of living water to flow through me if I do not dam it up with my own selfish reactions. I need to draw from He Who is the Source of peace and wisdom.O Lord, help me to allow your living waters of peace to flow through me to my boys.

"God made the world for the delight of human beings-- if we could see His goodness everywhere, His concern for us, His awareness of our needs: the phone call we've waited for, the ride we are offered, the letter in the mail, just the little things He does for us throughout the day. As we remember and notice His love for us, we just begin to fall in love with Him because He is so busy with us -- you just can't resist Him. I believe there's no such thing as luck in life, it's God's love, it's His."
