Safety in Numbers......
Or so 'they' say and clearly my daughter agrees with that statement. This is her routine at night, she gathers her favorite friends around her and lines them up and puts her neck pillow on snuggles under her blanket and asks for her bedtime prayers and only then is she able to feel safe and shut her eyes to a peaceful sleep.
Isn't it funny that we all have something that helps us feel safe and secure in our environment and in ourselves, for some of us it may be safety in numbers and never really sticking out in a crowd for others it is, our house, our job,our finances,our friends and our family and maybe all of the above.
I love watching my kids to see what they picture as safety and security. I pray that with each passing day they learn to depend more on God for their security and self worth and then they will feel peace where ever they go.
I far to often fail and leave God out of my everyday life and try to do everything on my own and then I end up frustrated and frazzled, I need to remind myself that nothing will make me feel safe and secure and PEACEFUL until I include Him in my everyday routine~
