Why is it that we spend our childhoods wishing that we can be grown up so we can do whatever we want just to find out that being grownup DOES NOT mean doing whatever you want.
We were ROBBED, People!

I know I'm posting a boatload of videos lately, but music is really speaking to me as of late. This song is really powerful to me. It talks about what's really important and taking care of one another. I can't really add anything more significant than that...

This evening I met a friend at Starbucks. We sat on the patio with our iced lattes and had a really great visit. Good friends, good coffee, great weather. A wonderful day.

I could sit back and beat myself up over this, but it wouldn't be productive. I have to forgive myself, learn from it and move on.

We like it better when things are easy and you can see how it's all going to work out. It makes sense. It's logical and ascertainable. Unfortunately, life is rarely like that. Surprises happen, and sometimes they're not happy ones. Stuff happens that we don't expect and screws up our plans. BUT...
We have to remember that even though we were caught unawares, God was not. He knows the end from the beginning and he knows not only what will happen but how he's going to get us on the other side, wiser than we were before we started.
This faith thing is always worth it, but sometimes it's not all that easy.

A lady I've become friends with online has been struggling with breast cancer for the last few months. She received chemo, but it was not effective. Now she's dealing with an inoperable brain tumor and aggressively growing tumors. She's young, married and has a young son who's about three.
WOW! This is one of those moments when you realize that we really have nothing to complain about. What's going on with me is nothing cataclysmic. Nothing that will alter anyone's life in the long run. It's not life and death. It's just stuff.
Father God, I lift up Sharon to you and ask you for her complete and total healing. Help me, Lord, to always remember what's important and what's not. AMEN.
