He always provides

I haven’t worked since the close of the music stores.  Back then, I only worked part-time, but still, it helped bring in groceries.  Our daughter took me in without question, but it has always been difficult financially.  Today the insurance company reimbursed us for the camper damage, and it felt like Christmas. We were able to pay some bills and buy some much-needed items that we have put on the back burner. The lessons I learned from this situation we're priceless!  Family can only make it if they stick together, and God will provide!  I come from a family with a history of overwhelming worry.  They seem to have one tragedy after the other, which made my anxiety horrific.  Little by little, God has shown me that he will take care of me.  What doesn't kill me gives me the hindsight to avoid traps!  I also learned that not everyone who claims to love you loves you, and those who love you might hurt you, but they desire your forgiveness.  My advice today is to keep your chin up and shine like warriors!  Remember, the demons you face today might pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass!

Much Love,

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
