Boy what a week it's been. Some of it not so good and some of it terrific, "That's Life." I had to go for some test this week, and though not pleasant, I know that they will bring the answers I need, so I rolled with it. While in the city I got to catch up with people I have not had the chance to spend time with in quite some time.
Each of us having our troubles, but by the grace of God we're able to continue on our journey and not let these issues prevent us from enjoying and sharing love and life. It is so monumental to remember that the power of prayer is our secret weapon and not our last resort. When we try and figure things out on our own the problems become the center of our attention and they prevent us from hearing the answers we seek; more then that, the trouble that is inevitable, turns into the misery that's optional.
The week has gotten so much better, as I got to spend time with my Niece who unbeknown to me, has become a young lady about to go for her drivers permit, "When did that happen?" Anyway, the point is I got to know her now as a contributing, intelligent, warm, loving young woman, and it was so refreshing, and such a blessing, to know that the little person I watched blossom, is turning into this amazing flower.
We played games and laughed so hard, it felt so good and I was so grateful to my Heavenly Father for carrying my burdens from the earlier part of the week so I could soak up all the wonders of the day with my family. I wanted to share this because I know so many of us have full plates right now on different levels, whether it be emotional, physical, or spiritual.
Though our roads may be under construction at the moment, doesn't mean that they're still not leading somewhere. So I hope as you face some of those road blocks today that this little story may encourage you to expect the problems, but know if we can remember to ask, expect, and accept, that we can over-ride the problem, avoid the misery, and embrace the day...I would love to hear your thoughts about it too...
God Bless you all, have a fruitful rest of the week and may you feel God's loving embrace always....Patricia©
