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!]
