March Inn

Why"March Inn?" March Inn was the name of that magic place where I spent my summers growing up. I have alluded to this place before, and I probably will again. March Inn is no longer standing. The waters of Katrina rendered it unlivable so my children will never know that "March Inn." That makes me sad. In fact it brings me to tears whenever I think about it. I want my children to have their own "March Inn," and I want to capture our lives as they are growing and changing. I invite you to "march inn" to our lives. My hope is that you will catch glimpses of the real world. You will see our creations. You will see our chaos. You will see our affection. You will also see our frustrations, fears, and disappointments. Enjoy your march!

"I Trust You"

Two years ago just after Walker was born, my mother 'n law gave me what I consider a great little devotional. The title is Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. For a time after Walker's birth, it was all I had the time or energy to read by way of a quiet time. I found it peaceful, soothing, calming, simple yet enlightening...
As time went by, I was able to spend some time looking up the verses referenced at the bottom of each page. They elaborated on the text and were typically quite powerful and added to the meaning, but they are unnecessary to get the gist of the message.

As more time as gone by, I have fallen from looking up the referenced scripture, but still read the devotional most mornings. After a fitful night of rest, these words helped me this morning: I want you to learn a new habit. Try saying, "I trust You, Jesus" in response to whatever happens to you." No, I do not know the plan or all that is going on behind the scenes, but God does. He is in control. I truly believe that he will not give us more than we can handle and so I will continue to trust ~ no matter what comes, no matter how gray the day seems, no matter how anxious, overwhelmed or stressed I am, I will trust that God loves me and has a plan for me.
