Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Is it just me, or is there a rash of crap going on? Can I say that? Oh well, just did. Everyone I talk to right now, is really suffering in some way, and as an extremely-sensitive type, it starts to weigh on me. I know God has His reasons for suffering, but it just makes me want to wrap everyone up in a big group hug.

Actually, it makes me want to be a dog. My dog's biggest problem today is that I haven't opened the blinds and she can't see out the window from her window seat, so she's whining at me. Life is rough, huh?

But if you're out there, and you're suffering silently, consider this your daily hug and go do something nice for yourself. God is good. He is able. He can pull the blinds up for you. : )

Oh my!!! I loved that!!!!! It was just what I needed, having just heard some potentially bad news from a close friend. I sent her the link to the post! Thank for the encouragement! You're awesome girl!

Jessica, I'm glad it helped someone. I'm old enough to know when you come out of it, you see the silver lining, but it's so easy to get caught up in the gray. Every. single. time.

I pray your friend's news is NOT bad at all. : )

Thank you for the hug! Sometimes we get so busy in our lives that we forget that there are others who are suffering a lot more than we are.

However, I did treat myself to a nice hot Snickers latte, yummmy.

We all need it at times. I'm hearing a lot out there, too, Kristin. So here's a hug back:

It's NOT just you:-) As a pastor's wife, quite frankly, I'm bone-weary from the weight of ministry needs in our church and watching the way the news is constantly spinning things.

In the past month, we've received at least six major blows: a child shooting, a relative nearly dying from drug interaction, a marriage in crisis, a new believer struggling with her faith, a single mom raising four kids alone and feeling like a failure, and a family struggling to adopt needing to desperately remodel their home while battling chronic illness in the family.

And those are just the 'biggies', so thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Thanks! I needed that hug! :)

Well, it helps me to see that I am not alone. I have collected the weights of the world around me for my whole life. I am glad that the sensitive/mothering side of me isn't broken or malfunctioning. Things really are happening!

God has blessed us beyond my imagination, and I have been able to DO something for one hurting couple. I don't know if this is a Reason friend or something greater, but I have been feeling very dry lately. Your hug helped water my camels. Thank you!
