  • Not Where I Should be

    Not spiritually nor financially - things are looking good on some fronts and bad on others. I just need to hang in there and quit being anxious - He's still God, after all! But I'm finding it hard to do and I'm really tired of struggling so much financially. Heck, I'm just tired.

    I'm in better health than I have been in years, work is going better (eh, better than it was isn't actually good but it is an improvement) and I'm making progress on some stuff at home (AC unfortunately not being one of those things). Candidacy is probably not going to work out well this year - I can't afford all the money it's going to cost right now (and I do mean right now - I have to send a check next week). But I'm decorating for VBS this week-end and so far it's gonna look great (I just hope people show up to help tomorrow!). I have two businesses, one that even brings in a little money (scarves aren't big sellers in the summer, oddly enough) and I've been working hard on both. I'm back to reading Scripture daily - I'd missed that.

    Positives out weight the negatives but I still feel bad. Maybe it's my sinus' - or just me. Sigh...

    Anyway, I don't have anyone to really talk to right now so I appreciate y'all listening to me ramble (or grumble, depending on your POV). I just need the strength to hang in there - and to quit worrying like an idiot. Can't change my hair color doing that so what good is it, anyway?

    Thanks, everyone!

          Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

                Don't worry about "grumbling." We're all here for you and you're in our prayers.

                          May God bless you!

                          PS: Teal coloed hair probably is not a good idea anyway.
