I’m in a real blog slump. I can’t seem to get motivated to do anything around the house and everywhere I look there are things that need to be done. Guess I’ll just be like Scarlett O’Hara and “think about it tomorrow”!
I think part of my problem is that there has been a lot of sadness around me lately. My mom’s last surviving friend, who turned 91 last Saturday, will probably not be alive in 30 days. She had a massive heart attack on Christmas Eve, then when she went in the hospital, they discovered she was ate up with cancer. Her only child (he was in his 70’s) died last spring and she essentially gave up from that point on. This is a real Christian woman but she says she’s ready to “go.” My mama is taking it pretty hard. Mama will be 91 in June.
Yesterday a friend of ours was murdered! No one knows much right now but his truck was found on fire and he was on the ground a few feet away stabbed to death. My husband just saw him at the bank last Friday.
There are also some other things going on I’m not at liberty to discuss. A friend is having a hard time with some life changing events and needs reassurance.
I know the power of prayer and I would ask that you join me in asking God’s “peace that passeth all understanding” be felt by these precious folks and the family of our murdered friend.
