A friend once complained to my sister about the difficulties contained in child rearing, especially the lack of peace and quite rest.

"What you need is a playpen to separate the kids from yourself," my sister suggested.

So my sister's friend bought a playpen. A few days later, my sister called to ask how things were going.

"Superb! I can't believe it," she replied. "I get in the pen with a good book and the kids don't bother me one bit!" ***********************************************************

Are circumstances or persons in your life causing you to wish for an escape? Are you finding it difficult to maintain strength and respond with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22)?

I'm grateful to rest in the peace and strength that God provides when I'm willing to stop trying to resolve issues myself, allowing God's strength to work in and through me, resulting in His character and likeness being revealed.

The Lord gives strength to His people; the Lord blesses His people with peace. -Psalm 29:11
