Now That's a Good Scripture

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Romans 12:12

That pretty much sums it up.

I can't seem to be able to put 2 words together lately to form a post. I am distracted with "life". There seem to be things nagging at me on a daily basis (and, I don't mean the kids!). Just things like our finances, where and how long I'll be working when school begins, our finances, my house is a constant mess from the little ones (#1 is at camp), our finances, missing the girls and who their teachers will be when school starts, our finances, and most recently, The Husband's grandmother who was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

I have not been very "joyful in hope" or "patient in affliction". Come to think of it, I'm not always very "faithful in prayer" either.

I am so very thankful our God is merciful, joyful, faithful and patient!

Okay...I'm off to try to joyfully and patiently clean at least one room in my house and make these little kids of mine pick up their stuff! After that, I'm canceling Direct TV and XMRadio. I can't even believe I'm typing that....sniff......Maybe it will all be for the best, the kids are too glued to the TV anyway.

You are an awsome mom and woman of God!

I just wanted to tell you that we get TV "free" with an antennae (indoor at the moment, but Dawson would like to spend the money to get an outdoor one) and we also bought a converter box with a coupon that you can sign up to get from the gov't (I don't know all of the details, but I can get it for you). So, we still have some TV that we can watch - more channels than without the converter box - I think about 10 channels (8-1, 8-2, 15, 21-1, 21-2, 27-1, 27-2, 33-1, 33-2, 43). Just a thought that I would pass along in case you wanted to get some channels without much cost.

This really speaks to me today; I think there's something in that verse for everyone. It's so easy to get caught up in the turmoil and difficulties that surround us sometimes and lose focus.

I know God has some great blessings in store for your family!
