This weekend, Jimmy and I invited two of our new friends, Jordan and Lindsay, to come to Cedar Point with us (and his mom). It was so INSANE!! In fact, "insane" is my new favorite word and I said it so much over the weekend that I probably got on everyone's nerves. I have never felt so out of control than I did on those roller coasters. I felt safe the entire time but hated that there was nothing I could do to change or control what happened once I got in that line and sat in that seat. It made me realize that life is often like that...we go through INSANE situations and times in our life but God is always there to help control the situation...even if we don't notice that He's there!
After our crazy day on the coasters, we were able to chill out and spend time enjoying part of God's beautiful creation! The sun had set and we took a sheet to lay out on the beach at Lake Erie. The moon was big and bright...the stars were amazing...words cannot describe :) I think it's in peaceful times like this that we tend to notice that God is with us.
I have decided to challenge myself in knowing that God's love is always present during our INSANE roller coaster situations and during the peaceful times in our life. Remember:
Love is a choice...God chose to love us...in good times and in bad
