The time I came was also their most fussy time of the day. We'd walk the babies around, I'd even take them outside. It was a startling new place and often just a change of atmosphere calmed them. They would look around and stop crying.
Years later a friend of ours died and my friend didn't like that I didn't attend the funeral. I just couldn't. She and I would go to dinner but it got longer and longer in between. I called one night and she finally said to me, "I hoped your would see that it's been longer and longer between dinners. You're just not gettting it." "I don't want to be friends anymore." "I can't believe you didn't go to Lynn's funeral." It went on after that for a bit, then we left the restaurant.
I was so depressed it was like she had died. She would not answer emails, calls, letters. I grieved for a long time. I couldn't believe it happened. I knew I wanted her in my life as long as we were both here.
God knew what was best for me. It was a terrible loss, and years later, it still hurts but I realize that God always does what's best for me even if I don't agree at the time. Just because he does what's best for us, doesn't mean it won't hurt us. That's another reason to keep Christians around you.
I tell my husband this all the time. I don't want gifts. I want time with him.
check out this song. It is by the Newsboys and the song is called Guilty. It's a song about God being taken out of many places. See if you too would be guilty.
This is the verse of the day. Again, I am amazed at the content. Who hasn't been persevering under a trial? We all have something we are battlling. What we are battling is Satan and the only way we can continue to battle is to persevere with Jesus Christ at our side. We need to have Christians around us to continue to help us through these circumstances. God has placed these people in your life for a reason. He's also placed you in people's lives to help them. I love the idea that we are a blessing to others and we are their answer to prayer! God sure is amazing isn't He?
Medical Update: Waiting for update on MRI scan. I have a question. Why is it that at night is when the pain is at its worst? By evening my movement is so restricted. If I move often it's accompanied by shooting pain.
Thank you for stopping by,
