Life isn’t fair, so get over it. I find myself thinking this more often than not. I’m so tired of hearing people lament about their lot in life. I’m sure some will think how can I possibly say this because we have been blessed in many ways. We live in a home with running water, a toilet (three in fact), heat, clothes in our closet and our pantry is full. Even our family is intact. By all accounts, we are the top 1% when compared to the world. I’m even more fortunate because I have a dog at my feet and a cat in my lap. Continue reading
Heard these songs yesterday….a good way to start on Monday morning….
nothing sweeter to my ear than gospel…
Listen to “If my People” by Eric Gambrell…. he is singing with his parents…love, love, love!
This is an interesting read:
“He [Christ] is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” His argument is basically that God designed laminin in the shape of a cross and gave it the particular function of “glue” in the body so that we can know (in his words) the truth that Christ holds all things together.
Over the years, we’ve had road blocks that forced us in another direction. Each time, prayer had been involved. Sometimes I received the answer I thought I wanted, and sometimes I didn’t. Not everyone believes, yet when non-believers are in crisis, they ask me to pray for them. I never quite understood this. If you think I am crazy because my faith does not make logical sense to you, then why do you ask me to pray for you? They think I understand all tragedy because I have the greatest tragedy of all, my child is not “normal”. Yes, my daughter is significantly challenged, but this is “our” normal. Every special needs parent has had someone say “oh, I could never do what you do, or, you are such a special parent”. However when tragedy does strike their family, they suddenly “get it ”. They think they know how I feel. They figure who better to share their pain with than me. Apparently, I’m not not the first to witness this phenomenon. Continue reading
From the blog Two Sparrows and a Crown;
Please fill this house with Love and Light,
Protect us as we sleep at night,
By morning be our Will and Might,
Unite us all by Faith in Christ.
Another answered prayer was to find a friend in faith.
I’m anxiously awaiting to read what Shorty will write next! No pressure!
Prayer is just amazing. I love when I witness God’s hand in answered prayer.
Last night I was feeling discouraged. Over a period of time, when I shared an opinion that had been shaped by experience, another parent would say “that is not so”. I’m not going to argue with someone that doesn’t know me and I’m certainly not going to argue with someone who has not experienced what I have. What I find frustrating is when I sense that they are dominating and in turn, territorial.. Continue reading
My belief is that every cloud has a silver lining. The darker the cloud, the more spectacular the light can be. The rays of light are our sign that we indeed will get through the challenges that have been placed before us.
