Okay it’s been a day or two since my last post so I wanted to make up for it. Happy Birthday to my Dad on the 28th. He looks awfully good for 80. Thank God for Green. It most definitely makes life a little easier. Yes I said it, yes I feel that way. So there. Also thank God for my family Cindy, Bec and Joe. Mom and Dad are right there also. Finally to all of my neighbors with dogs who let me love on them even though they aren’t mine. Thanks Thanks Thanks
Today started a new time in our lives. My daughter and her boyfriend are here and it’s tough. They don’t understand my illness and my eating habits. Life is not good at all so what do I do? Pray? Fuss or just flat out give up!!!!!!! I vote for giving up and just letting things go along as they do…
Just finished watching a morning “preaching” show. The fellow was pretty good but his message was very depressing. I don’t know why preachers feel the need to put everyone down. I mean really God is so loving,caring and compassionate. Jesus spent his time on earth ministering to those that were downtrodden, poor and outcast. Shouldn’t modern Christians follow his lead? Unfortunately we place people into groups: poor, white, etc. How surprised we are all going to be when and if we make it to heaven and people not like us are there. Hmmm just a thought.
Okay so ECU actually bet a good team today. I am still amazed about that. I mean come on Pack you knew that they would be ready for you. You knew that it was going to be tough going but still to loose to ECU. Well I am embarrassed for you. So what does that have to do with God you ask? Not sure but I think it means that State fans have a much more difficult time making it through the pearly gates than say Tarheel fans or even ECU fans although the last one is highly questionable. So when we all congregate in that big stadium in the sky, I hope my seat is on the home side, otherwise halftime is gonna be really really hot. BTW, I have inside information that many State and some ECU fans have been given season tickets to that game and they are all visitors. So many people ask if God has a since of humor. Of course, look at Carolina Basketball last year, State losing to ECU today and ECU football in general. Of course God thinks it’s funny to see established programs lose to nobody’s. Didn’t say who the nobodies were I’m just saying.
Just sitting here playing Guitar Hero when their was a knock on the door and my mom and dad just showed up out of nowhere. God does provide in times of trials.
Woke up this AM hurting again. So depressed don’t know what to do. I think I”ll take medicine for the pain and then reflect on the meaning of life again today.
Now that we are well into the fall or recovery I just wanted to take a minute to muse about the recovery we are going through. I don’t have any more money than I did in April, May or June. I am not eating any better and the people I know aren’t doing any better. So who recovered? Our nation? Don’t think so! Our state? Nope, as far as I can tell we have a president who is very gifted at spinning things in his favor. Like him or hate him you have to give him credit for being a great politician. Now is that what we need? Do we really want a smooth talking good looking so I am told leader? Or do we need someone that actually cares about us? I personally vote for the latter and I don’t think our present commander and chief is doing much to help anyone but himself. Sorry folks but that’s how I feel. Disagree or agree just comment I’ll comment back promise.
Just looking at Facebook, a young lady that I knew when she was very young wrote that. Life is Good today. Wow, Life is good when I wake up, hurting all over, take medicine and then start another day. You know not that long ago waking up in pain was for “old people” but now I realize that for so many years I took health and happiness for granted. Do I ever wish I wasn’t sick? Of course who wouldn’t but if I have a choice of living and hurting or not living at all, I will adopt Liz’s comment: “life is good today”. God is good everyday.
I think I might have been harsh on God in my last post. So we’ll take a New Testament approach to this problem. Yes I am disabled, but with God’s diving mercy and grace I can still walk, talk and type. Furthermore I have a place to live and I might be able to go back to work part time next week. So maybe God has blessed me in so many ways that I am not aware of. Could that be the missing link in all of this?
Today I spent the majority of my time contemplating the meaning of life. Why did God put us here? Why am I sick at age 47? Is it to prove a point? is it to make me patient? Could it just be that is the way it is? Or is there more to it? Could it be I am paying for past and future sins? I want opinions.
