Ramblin'

This morning soon plunged downhill into a morass of bad attitudes. Everybody. But especially Mama. I let the runny nose, whining, lack of sunlight, back talking and short time get to me. Worse, I listened to the voice of my enemy when he said 'You're stuck here again. Are your kids always going to be sick like this? Are you ever going to get along with your husband? What kind of Savior makes you go through this day after day?" (I know, I know! Bad call on my part!)


After slamming a few doors and complaining that I was going to be late for an appointment (while Papa was dealing with the previously mentioned backtalk) I finally burst into tears. I cried all the way to town. Then I wiped my eyes, squared my shoulders and walked up to the door. Where I was greeted by a dear friend who I knew without a doubt would set me straight. Still holding onto my bad 'tude I answered his question "How are you?" with "Do I have to answer that?"

Together we worked on errant muscles and an errant heart at the same time. I left with a repentant and joyful heart(and sore shoulders). I remembered once again Who I am. And who my Savior really is too. I bounced through the rest of the day (so far:) I think my favorite part though was when he said "You and my wife are going to be great friends" That made me so happy. We've been slowly working on getting to know each other. But, it is slow going with two quiet people! It's been a long time since I had a close girlfriend and I'm glad to be in the position of building such a relationship.

I was so thankful to get the encouragement, exhortation and prayer I was so desperately in need of today. My Jesus is so faithful and so patient. Thank you, Jesus for being so patient!! :} I love You so much!

Oh, I know just what you mean about that kind of bad attitude day! I'm glad you found the right ear to hear you and redirect your thoughts.

And I'm glad you had some sunshine today! I hope everyone's feeling better!

Thanks :) We are still cold-ridden. But happy, I've been so aware of God's presence the last few days, it's been amazing.
