Tender Mercies


Life can sometimes get stressful. That is just the way it is. Stress is no respector of persons, it just visits whoever it wants no matter where you live, what color you are, or any other thing that might make us different. But I also know that the Lord is the same and during the times of stress he gives us His sweet "Tender Mercies". I was having a particularly stressful day and to combat it I went outside to start to work. I mowed the lawn and watered some flowers and in the process the rest of the family came out and helped and played. When we were all done we were just sitting outside and as I took a moment to look around I saw the beautiful sunset and watched my husband playing with the kids and I couldn't believe just how lucky I was at that very moment. I felt the love of my family and the love of my Heavenly Father for my family and I was so grateful for that sweet tender mercy that the Lord had given me at that moment. It is moments like those that give us the boost we need to keep going and battle the stresses of this world. It ended up being a great day.
