"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
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.
