Hello Monday. Hello to coffee and some Mc breakfast with a dear friend. Thank you GOD for her... good talk.Hello to instant chatting to a friend so far away. You know just what we need God. Thank you again for her... good talk. Hmmm.... Seems like my Monday has a theme about it. Hello bank negotiating. Hello to clean house and clean carpets. Hello new buyer. Hello to finally under contract... if you would send me the bank approval :) I told you short sales are a process!! Hello to perspective....
The picture above is a cherished one in my collection. This is one of me and my dad. Before the divorce, before adolescence, before marriage and kids, long before...the cancer. Yeah, I said the ugly word, cancer. The last year has been a rough one. Even before I found out about Dad's cancer. I mean we have really been refined this year. I am okay with it now. BUT when you are in the meat of it... its ugly and it hurts. Like sandpaper its rough, but when it is all done you are newly molded and a new creature. That is what I am. If you knew me four months ago... you don't know me now.
My perspectives have changed. My perspective on the economy , my job, money and STUFF. More then ever my perspective has changed on relationships. I have learned to ACCEPT people for who they are, where they are. Thank you Jesus. Sure admonish when need be, but for crying out loud don't let anger fester over silly things.Say what you need to say, in LOVE, say what you need to say. Don't write them off... they are worth it. I have also learned that sometimes you can try REALLY hard and really open your heart up only to be spit on. I am okay with it now... Jesus just calls me to love. So that's what I do.
Life is short... its true. Its even shorter in places like Haiti where a dear friend and her family are living for the summer. In Haiti death is just part of the population control. Are you kidding me? No, I am not! Every day children die there because they don't have the money for a simple antibiotic, they fight for a small snack. While I set here eating Italian Creme Cake and start a post on the UP house. I just couldn't post it today. Because I am in a funk... and I am not going to pretend that all is magical today... because right now its not.
I promise tomorrow... I will show you the UP house. Today the thought of the UP house only brings me to tears, because even there the L.O.V.E. of his life dies.
Thanks for understanding dear friends. I cherish all of you.
Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
