Today


After being in the hospital most of the day with my Gram on Friday (who is doing great, this roller coaster thing just might kill ME!) I came home to check my email from work. I was lucky enough (NOT!) to get an email saying a bunch of garbage (and we will leave it at that - got a stomach ache already!) and today I have to deal with it. My stomach is achy, my nerves are at their highest string (I'm high strung) and quite frankly I don't want to deal with it.


Our Pastor asked us yesterday, what's your Goliath. I wouldn't classify this as my Goliath, this is just satan trying to stop me and steal my joy. But here's the thing, I have been up against bigger, and badder garbage than this. And I am quite sure that someday it will come again. And I think of David, against Goliath, and the verse that Pastor J said quite a few times yesterday, 1Sam 17:37 37 The LORD who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine." God can deliver me from this. I am not worried about that, I just don't want to deal with it. I'm not brave like David, but I'll do it.


Whoever said that the Bible (or the Old Testament) can't be related to our lives really needs to read it.
And yeah, I know... there are worse things...

Praying that God will help you through this "garbage." Remember, even if this isn't your Goliath, God still cares about it. He even cares about the smallest stuff. He feeds the sparrows after all!

Hope you ended up having a wonderful day and very little garbage.

Garbage can make life seem smelly. Hope your soon smells better.

I had my meeting with her. My stomach still hurts but I find comfort in the fact that stomach aches come and go but bad personalities and stupidity hang around for a long long time...

Not sure what you're dealing with, try some syrup of ippecac (sp?) and just get it over with. Hugs & Prayers for peace too.
