Would You Like Some Cheese with that WHINE?

I just wrote an incredibly long and extremely interesting post whining about my week so far. So sorry you won't get to read it. I deleted it. I'm learning lots of lessons in contentment these days. I'll just give you the high points. [Careful! I can hear your huge sigh of relief that I'm only hitting the high points!]

--Dryer died over the weekend.

--Still haven't heard anything about the job I interviewed for last week.

--Good friend died Monday afternoon. She's with Jesus! Praise the Lord!

--Realized yesterday that even though you spend 4 years of your life 'trying to help' someone you can still be considered Miss Monster. But I know God promised "His Word will not return void!"

--Beloved van died yesterday...It's still in the yard--possible permanent yard art.

--New (to me) dryer was installed by Mr. Fix-It this morning...has a buzzer!

--I now have clean AND dry underwear.

--Old dryer is NOT in my yard.

The Good News?

"Be anxious for NO-THING , but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING let your request be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:6-7 NASB [ ..emphasis mine!]

Awww...I'm so sorry you have had a crummy week so far!

It will get better, you know. And for your friend: I heard one lady say this when her close friend passed away, "I'm just jealous she made it there before I did." :-)

Wow-do you ever think about who and what she is seeing RIGHT NOW? Who she's talking to?

One thing I did, too, when my daddy passed away was I just asked Jesus to hug my dad for me. Well, does He answer prayer or not? I found much comfort in knowing that He could do that.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm so very, very sorry for the loss of your friend. Even though you know that she is with Jesus, it still hurts that she is no longer here. My heart goes out to you.

I've had my pity party posts in my past - and probably still some in my future! Congrats on deleting it - I often wish I had . . .

God is good, and I'm glad you're finding contentment even with all the things gone wrong.
