The last few days, maybe weeks, I have been on the verge of throwing a fit. It seems like the world is officially against me. It always happens this way in my life. Things will be going smoothly and then, all of the sudden, everything happens at one time. No need to go into all the details but maybe I can get some feed back on this. Why is it that life is the hardest when your expectations are not met? Do I set my expectations too high? Is it so we can reprioritize things in our life? Or step back and see the big picture, God's perspective. The details of life can wrap you up like getting tangled in poison ivy! And and it takes all that is in me to no throw a fit!!!

Lord, help me that I may 'escape from the wicked ways of the world by learning about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ' and that I not get ' tangled up with sin and become its slave again, and be worse off than before'. Taken from 2 Peter 2:20

Colby found out today that his tumors are inoperable b/c his cancer has spread behind his bladder. Chemo is out as well. Mendelhson has recommended him to an Indianapolis specialist because there is nothing else he can do for him. His news is sobering. I don't know if it is this time of year, weather, or really what I think it is;the enemy attacking. I'm starting to rebuke him in the name of Christ. But again;his news is sobering enough to realize my situaiton for what it is, light. Things could always be worse. Be praying for Colby his wife Amy and their five kids.

Wow! That does put things into perspective. My fits are so unwarranted. I hurt for Colby and his family. I will be praying for them and your church. I will pray miracles will come and God will get all the glory!! Thanks for sharing.

I hate to hear the news about Amy's friend..Horrible. I know that there is always much to be thankful for but sometimes we feel much better just to lay down and kick and scream! Sometimes you need that too!!!

Hope it gets better.

Just come on over...I call it surround sound when both girls are crying so you can just join them. Just kidding but I do know what you mean and I always get an attitude adjustment whether I like it or not :) His mercies are new every morning, especially when we want to cry "uncle" or "mercy" - 2 of my favorite things to say when it gets tough-hang in there!

Spend most of my time behind a camera and computer or in my suv toting my kids to the baseball field or dance studio. My favorite place is home with Jeff and the kids. They keep me laughing!!
