Big Shadows

Tonight as I tucked Snapp into bed, he exclaimed, "What is that???" On the wall was a huge, scary shadow. We investigated and the huge, scary monster was really a little, tiny fly walking around the nightlight:) As we watched his shadowy legs move and then disappear, we chatted about how sometimes little things can seem like big, scary things. As I left his room, I reflected on how once again God used my children to teach me a lesson. There has been some big, scary shadows on the wall of my mind. And God wanted to remind me that they really are tiny compared to Him. I recently received an email that said "Don't tell God how big your troubles are, tell your troubles how BIG your GOD is!!" I guess I better go have a talk with those big shadows:)
