When you live out in the country on a gravel road, the dust seems to stick to EVERYTHING…especially a dark-colored vehicle. So, your best bet is to drive something that’s already the same color as the gravel dust.
I guess, that didn’t occur to my husband the day he came home with a shiny black pickup truck. Besides being black, this truck only had 4 captain’s seats.
Our son, Austin, almost always had a friend with him and we were expecting Ashtyn in a few weeks. This truck just DID NOT FIT our lives!

I couldn’t believe that he’d spent all that money and made such a major decision that affected our entire family…without even CONSULTING ME!
I admit, peace is NOT something that I’m an expert on. I kind of went “off the deep end”.
As little girls, we dream of being the PRINCESS in the relationship. But sometimes, as adults, we act more like DRAMA QUEENS!
It makes the enemy SO HAPPY when we lose our cool, overreact, get mad and start yelling, because he who angers us, CONTROLS us!

Don’t let the situation get to you. Any problem you have can be as BIG or as small as you decide to make it.
“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.” Exodus 14:14 (AMPC)
Problems can only have the power WE GIVE them.
Go ahead…act like a princess…and keep your PEACE!
