In reflection…I has been a good and a bad year…. The past moths alone have been horrid….But the moths before were awesome! In October I broke my foot… October 18th…. It is still in a boot…
>.< I am to see a specialist because its healing so slowly… My Dr. was concerned I may need to have a pin put in it temporarily… Or I may end up with an extra joint in my foot he said… (I’m praying for complet healing to maifest) It has really sucked not being able to drive… And I miss my local friends… On top of that a few of our pets have passed away… (because of cancer, brain, and other issues) Then My aunt Christine Passed away too… Right before Christmas… ( believe they are all in Heaven healed and whole and I’ll see my pets and aunt again) I am not the only one going though issues… Some of my friends and family are too… And it breaks my heart…
But- The whole family got to be together for the first Christmas in 5 years! What a blessing! As for a gift to my parents… My sister Amanda and her Husband Kevin gave my parents sibling kittens… They are beautiful and they needed a good home… My paper back is being sold via Barns and Noble which is so exciting and scary too!
It is so easy to get mad at God for allowing the hurt in our lives… It has really piled up… But God has done so many good things too… Hes healed me more time then I could count, he take care of our needs when we lack… Hes brought my whole family into on state once more, and He’s blessing my baby Sister Amelia with a little Girl in February…The blessings out number the hardships… But when you are in the middle of a storm all you can see or feel is the hurt and pain…. I love Psalms 103, and Psalms 97. They are such amazzing chapters all about what God can and will do for you… Like Romans 8, Ephesians 6, Daniel 3, and Hebrews 11. They are all about what God can and will do for you if you have faith, if you obey Him and if you will listen… It is not really that hard… Right??? Wrong… Feeling bad…. Is a trap once you are feeling bad… It is so hard to find happiness again.. You have to choose to be happy, to allow yourself to be happy. You have to fight the lies of you being worthless and unimportant, that things will only get worse… You have to look for the good… Sounds familiar… In the past five years I have gone though this battle every year at some point. I think we all go though it… Different situation same type of battle… We need to Praise Him in the Storm and train our minds to be victors not victims… Philippians 4:4 Rejoice int he Lord always and again I say Rejoice.!!!
God bless you today and always! Choose to be happy to Have Faith and to Trust God to bring good out of Every Bad Situation!!!! Because He will!The devil comes only to steal from you, to kill you, and to destroy you; but Jesus came to Brig you Life and to Bring it Abundantly! ~John 10:10
Talk about an adrenalin rush!! I just cleaned out my office ( for the most part) in under an hour!!! Along with unpacking 3 boxes, dishes, sweeping, and watching an hour show!! I got more done in this hour then I have had time to do in weeks!!! Do you have times like these too? It is so amazing how much you can done when you work like that. Yet it happens; I moved so fast. I felt like the woman from “No Ordinary Family” with her super speed!! Seriously, WOW! If I had a before and after picture of that room you would be amazed.
It seemed like; Every time I started working on just that room, something would always come up… Good thing, my aunt and uncle surprised me and are coming in the morning!! They will be the first relatives to see my house besides my baby sister, and my parents since I moved in… I though I had more time like til the end of the month when my Nanna and Baca (grandma n’ grandpa) are coming; and soon after my boyfriend early October . Good thing I started doing the other chores yesterday and this morning. My house has not been so clean since my sister visited. It is not hard to clean but I was pet sitting and and not putting things away, not folding, kind of adds up ;p
I am glad they are coming. I meant to sleep but didn’t wanna leave the main stuff for morning.. Now I just have lil things to do… shower, and clear off dining room table, and hopefully finish folding the clean cloths ( in 3 garbage bags…) That is the chore I hate most! folding, boo! I don’t have a dryer, it is in the lease that the washer and dryer belong to the land lord. Even if I could get one I can’t afford one, so thankfully I can wash my stuff at my beloved parents house not to far from here. God is so Good!
In the last 8 months I have really leaned to treasure the little things, the pleasure of a shower, a cozy bed to sleep in at night, a vehicle to get around, doctors, pots n’n pans, dishes, silverware, hot water, soap, loved ones, a helping hand, patience, joy, health, food, internet, a phone! Praise God I have them! After living out of a suitcase for 5 months travling back and forth from family homes, it is so nice to have a place to be proud of, a place God has blessed me with to keep me safe, and where I can share my time with people who are important to me!!
I had this whole other blog I was gonna write, but it will have to wait till latter, sleep has finally come and now I am saying good night! God bless you, and take time to remember and treasure the people and little thing in your life that are important.
