When The Going Gets Tough


Things have been rocky in my world for the past week or so.  Hospice is now visiting my aunt daily, my uncle is quickly losing his battle with dementia and my mom's body due to rheumatoid arthritis and deep stress is leaving her in great pain. I felt myself slipping into depression, but now that has to end.  I have people who need me.  So, when the going gets tough I start calling on The Lord even more.  I have placed my burdens at his feet and have put on my armor to fight.

I ask for your prayers, because I truly believe in the power of them.  We are not praying for miracles.  We accept God's will on our lives, but we are praying for peace and mercy.  This is what I ask of you.  Please pray that my family will be fully surrounded in peace while we go through this.

Today I Am Grateful:

*For a new day filled with clarity
*That God is on the throne
*That my heart is not aching
*For God's sweet Peace
*For kind souls who pray for those they don't even know

  6. Tabby, I am so sorry that things are rocky for you. Anything I could say would seem trite. know that so many of us in the blogosphere support you and send their prayers your way. Take each moment as it comes, receive it as a gift. Savour the time you have left with those you love and celebrate them. We each have a cross to bear, don't we? And, sadly for those of us left behind, loss/death is a critical part of life.

    I wish for you strength and courage to face these tribulations, and hope that burns brightly for the future. This, too shall pass.
