Little Foil Hearts

You know those moments in life when everything seems to be going badly and all you want to do is scream,cry or maybe both?

So lately it seems to have been that way for me. I mean I have an awesome family and a great support system. But sometimes it all just feels too much.

Today was the kicker. When my husband called from work and said the car wouldn't start (our only car). He thinks he may know what it is, but for us we don't have a savings or money put aside for such things. I know we should, but we don't. We live paycheck to paycheck.

Every time I have felt overwhelmed, aggravated or upset at life or at my husband or kids. I look down and I see a little foil heart.

Now I could blame this on the fact that my daughter is messy and can't keep her nail stuff together. Instead I've been looking at it as a sign. A sign of love. Gods love for me and the love I am supposed to show others. It is so easy to let ourselves be taken over by anger (even when we feel justified)...but it takes true strength to accept love and grace. I hope that I am able to continue to have the strength to show God's love to others when I feel they don't deserve it...because I know that myself, the sinner that I am, that we all are...are worthy of everything that God has to give. We just have to be open to receive it.

Do you ever take anything as a sign from God? He's all around just waiting to show us. If only we would open our eyes and believe.
