"Do not be anxious 兴发xf881手机版about anything,but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.上帝的平安，which surpasses all understanding,will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.""
(Philippians 4:6-7 ESV)
For the anxious mother,上帝用他的话提供了一个解决办法。
It coversall of life别为任何事担心。兴发xf881手机版Pray 兴发xf881手机版about EVERYTHING.
And it comes with a承诺: God's peace will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Yet I some下载兴发pt首页登录times treat prayer as if it doesn't work.I do this by不praying or thanking but by worrying instead.
"I've tried praying before,"I excuse myself,"and God's answer was different than what I asked for.那有什么用呢？"或者，"我试着祈祷，但感觉不太平静。我一定做得不对。”"
But the peace of God is more than a flimsy feeling of peace.这是一个knowing，一settled confidence在上帝的至高无上的仁慈中，它能防止所有的焦虑情绪。
As we pray and give thanks IN EVERYTHING,our trust in God deepens and His peace pervades our lives.焦虑的想法没有同样的坚持力，最终，他们走开了。
所以最近我在腓立比书4中一直试图简单地遵守上帝的话。I still have a lot to learn 兴发xf881手机版about prayer,但我可以告诉你：我的信仰，peace and gratefulness to God have grown,我对焦虑的诱惑已经减弱了。
Scripture is true,作为焦虑的母亲，我们会很好地相信和服从。

¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
In a large heavy pot,用橄榄油中火炒大蒜约1分钟。兴发xf881手机版不要棕色！Add tomatoes and tomato paste.添加剩余成分，最后加入欧芹，再炖20分钟。

孩子们和布莱恩等不及克莱尔宝宝来了，但我希望她能多等几天。I still have to finish my"nesting list.""
我们从医院带孩子回家已经七年了，而且，to be honest,我有点生锈了！I've been walking the baby aisles at Target and Walmart trying to recall what supplies I will need to care for a newborn.I found new"advanced"bottles that didn't exist seven years ago (how many advances in bottle technology can there be?),and began worrying 兴发xf881手机版about all the other things I might be"missing".I had to stop and remind myself that I already have"the essentials": a few sleepers,diapers and wipes,摇篮，and a car seat.We'll be just fine.我相信新妈妈的技能会很快恢复到我的水平！!
感谢我的朋友Charlene这个星期五派我来，真有趣！This little one is too cute.
