Life Ain’t Always Sunshine and Roses

So here’s the deal.

It’s NOT always sparkle and shine in my life.

There are days like this week when I am burdened for a precious friend and feel helpless in the situation. When I am a bit tired of working, parenting alone, being this age with kids, being indoors, wanting something fun, loneliness, just the keeping on keeping on.

And there are some days when the only prayer I can form is, “Oh God, oh God, oh God!”

That is the real truth, folks. I get in those places too.

I thought maybe you should know.

I never want you to feel as if I downplay your pain. Or suggest that your difficult situation can just go away “poof”.

But I post the positive things I do because SOMEONE needs to read them.

And in my inner spirit those things are ME. They are what I do to keep doing.

I smile, I pray, I spend time being thankful, I reach out to others, I help others if at all possible….

All these things help to center me and bring the “yuck” back into perspective.

I do know that when we fill our brains with positive thoughts,

we attract more positive energy to ourselves.

And that is what being thankful is about.

That is what “speaking to the mountain” (see previous post) is about.

We actually DO have a choice in how we spend our focus/energy.

And when I’m in a funk, I choose to spend mine by rejoicing in all the good I see around me.

Being thankful for the many, many good things in my life.

And realizing that these funks don’t last forever.

Two things I know–God is always faithful, and the sun will eventually shine!

Humans…
with technology we’ve gone from thinking the world is flat
to thinking that we are “all that”.
To believing that our world is so large

to believing we are “in charge”.

However, this whole incredibly amazing universe,

larger than we can comprehend,

Is held togther in the Almighty Creator’s hand.


And to think that He loves US, and adores His creation! It truly humbles my heart and gives me hope.

Hope …when it seems that our world is truly on  a course of destruction. Hope … knowing that our God is unshakable. He does not tremble. He does not fear. He created all of this.

Yesterday there was a rare lunar eclipse that had many of us talking and taking pictures. I was quite tickled that God gave me (yes, He loves me that much) a PINK moon!! The rest of you just got to benefit. Ha!

As you view these amazing pictures taken by Hubble, prepare to be in awe….
