Six word Memoir Meme

I was tagged by Karen for this meme.

The Rules:
1. Write your own Six-Word Memoir.

2. Po
st it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you want.
3. Link to the person that tagged you in your post and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.

4. Tag at least five more blogs with links.

5. Leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.

It was hard to come up with something and limit it to six words, but this is what I came up with.


God's in control, I'm at peace.
I must admit that I have to remind myself of that at times, when I start stressing about things, but it is such a comfort to know that God is in control. Because He has a reason for things that happen, although I may not always understand, I can rest in his care.

That's mine. I'm not going to follow all the rules, because I'm not tagging anyone else, but feel free to play along if you want to!

Karen said...

You know I read your 6 words and I started to feel peaceful too, the words washed over me. So easy to get worried and concerned about various things in life.

That's a great thing for all of us to remember. I love the picture!

Shelly said...

Very good! We all need to remember that God is in Control and let Him be. Peace knowing that all things work out for those who love Him. Amazing how it is so easy to try to run our own lives. I have decisions to make so pray for me girlie!

A Stone Gatherer said...

Great job Mari! That is something I have to remind myself of often too!

Pat said...

There couldn't be a better memoir.
I also don't think there could be one person who wouldn't benefit from your words. I know I needed them.
Good job!

Rebekah said...

That is something I struggle with to.

Let go and let God.

Hi Mari Got to your blog via Ginger's - hope that's OK. I don't have a blog but am a Christian living in the UK and just wanted to say how great I thought the words were "God's in control. I'm at peace". Bless you

As I looked at your picture and read the 6 words that you chose, I felt such an awesome comfort. It made me think about God holding me in the palm of his hand, and that just like any father he will never let anything hurt me too bad. I've been through a lot in the last few days, but I know that God is always in control. You helped me remember that today! Thank you for letting God use you.

Sandra said...

You know Mari, I really needed to be reminded of that today...so thank you.

I love the picture you picked and the 6 words are just perfect :)

Hugs,
Sandra

Mary said...

Like you, I know that God is in control but sometimes have to remind myself of the fact when things start worrying me. God takes care of us and we don't always understand why things happen, but He is all-knowing.

Enjoyed visiting with you.
Blessings,
Mary

God is in control is a reminder I often need. Sometimes the being at peace is a little harder...always learning and growing...

Amy said...

I am going to keep thinking of what you said all night, as I have been worrying about something all night. You are right - its in God's hands now. Thanks, Mari.

I'm Sadie said...
