Such is life.....

The past week....actually more than a week....has been full of "stuff" know what I mean?? Those things in life that make us realize that our heavenly home is looking better and better every single day!!!! Last week consisted of physical ailments....hurt feelings....storms.....unkind brakes for my car.....water pouring from my fridge because the ice was melting due to the fact the fridge had QUIT.....just to name a few things that went totally WRONG!!!
So...I thought to myself that maybe Sunday would be know what I mean....beginning of a new week, and all?!?!?! Well....Sunday rolled around....fridge still wasn't fixed....found out some sad news.....and things really aren't a lot a matter of fact...I guess you could even say...they got a tad worse!!! Then, Monday....our Internet and cable were out....for over SEVEN HOURS!!!! I bet we'll get a credit on our bill, don't you....ummmm.....NOT!!!!

Those of you who go to church with me....this is going to sound a bit familiar, since our Friday e-mail last week was along these same lines. None of the things that happened were any big deal, in itself....well, one of the things was a HUGE deal....but, day after day of things going wrong....well, sometimes they just add up until we sometimes reach a breaking point!!!! Yes, I have a breaking point....and, if you really want to know how ugly it can be....just ask Pappy!!!!! Seems like when we're in a bad mood, we take it out on those we love the most....and then expect them to understand!!!!

I have no idea where this is leading...other than...I'm feeling very guilty about complaining so much over all the little trivial things that happen to me. I think about Job and nothing I have EVER gone thru compares to his suffering.....physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually!!!! What a man, huh??? Don't we all wish we had a bit of "Job" in us??? At least when I'm having a bad day, Pappy doesn't tell me what Job's wife told just curse God and die!!!!! But...have you ever really thought about Job's wife? The entire book of Job focuses on Job....what about his wife....they were her children, too...she gave birth to each of those children who lost their lives, so didn't she have a right to feel terrible??? I realize that what she said was an awful thing to say....but don't we all say things sometimes that we wished we hadn't said.....just like my blog yesterday talked about?!?!?!?!

So....that's that about that, as my Mammie used to say....yesterday was a fantastic far, so good (but it's only 7:20!!!), see...things do improve!! As my Mom always told me growing up...."Nothing ever stays the same"!!....and, as dear Dr. Liner always told us....


I found this verse of scripture...that seems to describe me to a "T"!!!!

Romans 8:23 (NLT)
And we believers also groan, even though we have the Holy Spirit within us as a foretaste of future glory, for we long for our bodies to be released from sin and suffering. We, too, wait with eager hope for the day when God will give us our full rights as his adopted children, including the new bodies he has promised us.

AMEN...and AMEN!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!


  1. Try not to beat yourself up Deb - at the end of the day we are still human no matter how hard we try. I can sense that you are a wonderful thoughtful person who tries very hard (and succeeds!) to bring Christian values into your life and I am sure God knows that and will reward you for it :)

  2. First, our fridge and now yours. I am really trying myself to keep my head up, but it is really hard right now. Humanly possible it is not, but with God all things are possible. Without HIM we could not even make through a normal day.


Kind words are like honey—
sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.
