As you know I have not been on here much this week..This has been a flunky week for me...I have felt like PMS has come back to bite me in the butt...mostly it was just a down, crazy, sad and dumb week for me as far as my attitude and my every day existence goes!! WHY? Well, I am sure it has to do with my surroundings...Although very peaceful here I think that I am waiting for the other shoe to drop..like they say!!
STOP reading now because i tend to get a little down this week so I thought if i wrote it out maybe it would make me feel better...You know sometimes that does work..Get it on paper...or the computer..whatever!!
The days themselves have been bright and sunny and that has helped me a lot I know...but just the way the economy is right now is starting to get to me. I have stayed in the Bible where I know that i need to be...I have been praying too..attended a great bible study yesterday and do realize that God is in charge..Yes, I really do understand that...Things around me seem like they are falling apart..I feel like LIFE is not going to get back to where it was ever again..I know this sounds so fatalistic...believe me I hate this attitude that I have and want it gone..for good... I told Mike that I really do not feel like smiling.
We went to Wednesday night bible study and pastor Kenny Grant had his last teaching series with us on Joshua 1...He hit me on the head of course...God is doing this...but where am I? I am listening really I am...He was talking about being STRONG AND COURAGEOUS and to remember that God will never LEAVE me or FORSAKE me!! I know this..I know this and have known it was all these years now that I have been saved...
So now I know you are saying..count your blessings..So I go that route and think..I have tons of them...A loving husband that is trying as hard as he can to get jobs; a roof over our heads; food on the table; good health (pretty good); a car that is paid for; gas in it (so far); kids that love us; parents that are still with us; great family that pray for us; a wonderful church; my bible; my bible study; great friends that I KNOW pray for us; bills are paid up to this point; wonderful grandchildren; our young grand daughter getting baptized tomorrow night; WOW!! What more do I want????
I am so sorry to have written all of this out but hopefully this will get me on a better track!! I just need to realize that God is here and He is able to help me...I need to study more and learn more because I believe soon we are going to need to remember his words more and more as the days go on....
Our USA as we have always known it is not going to be the same unless somehow God steps in. I believe that he is letting us understand that once we have left him out of our once God fearing AMERICA that HE is showing us just what he can do....
Those of us who truly believe may have to stand up...We just do not know what is ahead of us...Our freedoms are slowly slipping away. I just want to be able to live out what years God has left for me with my dear hubby in a world where we can function and not have to have constant fears of how things are going to be paid..Just once I would love that world..Course maybe it is not here on this earth..I just might have to live until the next world arrives for me.
On the UP side of things..somehow I have lost 2.5 lbs now on the new food plan with Curves...I have been trying...hard to keep the right foods that you need..seeing as how they are always more expensive...
I am going to have company this next month as Lazy Daisy and Mr. Wonderful will be here with us for a while...that is going to be a wonderful time to have a friend here in the same house....
I am off to the doctor Monday to have more blood work done. My B-12 might very well be low again and making me feel more tired and down...My son in law gave me another injection last night so hopefully I will feel better soon...I LOVE my new doctor and am so happy to have finally found a Good one..I have looked for 8 years now!! WHEW!! Was hard work!!
My mother is having a lot of difficulty with her legs...They just will not hold her up. AND I live about 800 miles away from her!! Not good!! I cannot go there either so I just have to learn that her friends and church are going to have to help this time around.
I am working some part time at Curves and do enjoy the ladies there..I love the interaction with them..
Hopefully all is well in your part of the world whether you are in Canada; Australia or right here in our great country...Together we need to learn that God is our Answer!!
FUNKY FLIP FLOP
