Sometimes I Don't Understand

Frustration is swirling inside of me. I've been plagued with various health issues for several years and have learned how to deal with them while I continue to believe in the God who performs miracles. On most days I enjoy my life. Then some little thing gets the best of me. That's what happened tonight. I felt like crying. I didn't. Instead here I am- blogging.

Thanksgiving is a God-given tool to pull my eyes from what seems like a mountain.

I am grateful for a wonderful summer with my granddaughter, for my husband's newly signed contract for another 2 years, for a beautiful family, my home, loyal friends, a group of women I meet with each week for Bible study, a peaceful country to live in, freedom, choices, stacks of books just waiting to be read, blogging, a new purse ...and a huge God who sees the whole picture when I can only see what is right in front of me.

Already I am calmer. I've learned that answers rarely come when I am frustrated or fearful. Actually once I'm at peace, the need to understand diminishes. Shalom.

You should cry, when you feel like it. But all in all it sounds like you are on a right path, a path to greater love and understanding.
Hope you can smile soon. Best wishes from LaWendula
