I’m smiling today even though Evan leaves this afternoon.

I can feel the peace that only comes from knowing Him who holds all things together.

I’m thankful this morning for that kind of peace.

This morning my before-school blogging time was spent writing Evan a letter to go in his notebook I put together as a going-away gift. In this notebook are notes and Scriptures from friends and family who wrote to encourage Evan as he starts his new life chapter.

I’ll write more this evening.

Thank you for your prayers.

I love you all so much!

I flipped my Scripture calendar over to September 14th right after writing this post, and this is what it said!

Peace I leave with you,

My peace I give unto you….

Let not your heart be troubled,

neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27

Emmanuel, God really is with us,
