Comfort during struggle

My last 3 weeks can be summed up by my husband's statement this afternoon, "I need to go back to work to get away from this stress."  Ouch!  I know he doesn't mean to be harsh or to hurt, but its true.  Our strong personalities combined into an even stronger personality in our child.  Who knew right?  Add to that 3 weeks of sickness, my husband getting it the worst when he came down with pneumonia.  He's been away from his high stress job for essentially 2 weeks and is feeling the pressure from every aspect of his life.  So I am choosing to view his words as simply his frustration.

We all go through periods in life often times repeated periods where stress gets to us.  So I am finding comfort in these words today:

Jesus said, "In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33

So today I'm taking heart and choosing to love my children and husband not for this world but the next!
