A stop off for peace

Caitlyn is going back for her hearing test to determine if she needs her hearing aides back in or not- it was re-sheduled to 11am tomorrow- & I started to feel a bit panicky then i got to grab some time alone & the reading for today was just scripture I needed tonight:
Matthew 6:25-33

"If you decide for God, living a life of God-worship, it follows that you don't fuss about what's on the table at mealtimes or whether the clothes in your closet are in fashion. There is far more to your life than the food you put in your stomach, more to your outer appearance than the clothes you hang on your body. Look at the birds, free and unfettered, not tied down to a job description, careless in the care of God. And you count far more to him than birds. "Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion--do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them. "If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers--most of which are never even seen--don't you think he'll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I'm trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God's giving. People who don't know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don't worry about missing out. You'll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

He is a good loving faithful Father, I have no need to fear or worry- He knows already her test results, He loves her and has a good plan for her lil life and will take care of us- as He has shown us over & over again. Ah, I love the peace of resting in His care - 
Hugs all,
