Sunshine Brings a New Day – Share Your Creativity

May 3, 2014 by 27 Comments

Welcome to Share Your Creativity Party • No. 112.  I listened to another song nonstop this week.  Do Not Be Afraid by Tanner Clark has been such a comfort as I’m walking through this crazy season where peace can only be found on my knees!   ‘Don’t be afraid for I am with you.  Do not fear, I won’t let you fall.  So come to me with your burdens heavy, and do not be afraid’love this song!  Last week, my little girl spent two hours each day at the middle school learning a dance for middle school drill team tryouts.  As we slowly walked toward the doors in front of the middle school for tryouts on Friday, Little B began to fall apart.  Her body froze and she couldn’t take another step.  Tears began rushing down her cheeks; she was paralyzed with fear.  A huge part of me wanted to swoop her up in my arms and help her run away from what seemed to be larger than life.  But, Little B is reaching a pivotal age where my rescuing prevents her from falling to her knees and experiencing peace that comes from the One who never leaves her alone.  Watching Little B overcome fear and make the choice to lay her heavy burden in His Hands made me far more proud of her than the accomplishment of making the team — results pic!  Sunshine Brings a New Day!

    Thank you so much for your note Nikki! I am so sorry for your loss! Tears are definitely a part of the healing process (and you never know when they’re showing up). They show how impacted we were by our sweet moms. I know next March (mom’s birthday and passing month) will be full of tons of emotions. I’m glad we both have the comfort of knowing our moms are in a place where joy will never end and one day we’ll be together again!!! I appreciate your prayers so much and hope you have a great week, too! OX, Aimee

    Thanks so much for host this party. I loved your story about your little girl. What a wonderful lesson to learn so young, especially since we know that there will always be trials along the way. But with the grace of God, we know that we are not alone.
    Have a blessed Sunday,
    Bev

    It’s so hard to let our kids grow up and prevent them from being hurt. However, with a strong faith God seems to guide us and them at those moments. Thanks for hosting.

      I was so excited for her — 25 tried out and only 14 made it. I would have loved to see more on the team since it’s middle school, but they were very selective.

      XO, Aimee
