Tears and hormones

I cried at Starbucks a few days ago because the lady wouldn’t take my mobile Starbucks card through the drive-through window. And when Jason called to tell me we were too busy to go to White Water this week, I cried again.

It’s been a long week.

I don’t know what’s different about this pregnancy, but the hormones are totally kicking my butt this time. My face is more broken out than it ever was when I was actually a teenager, and a lot of the time, I just feel like doing this:

But while that behavior is perfectly appropriate for a weeks-old baby, it’s not really becoming on a grown woman.

That’s why I am so thankful for this promise from Scripture:
“In everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”
-Philippians 4:6-7

Without the peace of God, I’m not quite sure how any woman makes it through pregnancy. Or through life, for that matter. I certainly couldn’t live without it.

So have a blessed weekend, and may the peace of God guard your heart!
