Different Blessings…

June 19, 2011

Dear God,

This is hard.  It’s hard to be so much in need all the time.  It’s hard to see others with so much and have to continually battle envy.  It’s hard not to resent the “haves” and not cry about being a “have not.”

But then I stop.

I’m not a “have not,” I’m a “have less” with different blessings.  I have 2 children I love and who love me.  I have many REAL friends.  I have a great family, and I have had your presence to sustain me, Lord.

Help me to want less, Lord.

Help me to envy less and thank you more.

Help me to worry less about what I “have not” and be truly grateful for what I have.

Amen…

 

My Cup Runneth Over!

MyCupRunnethOverframed

Where to begin?

I haven’t written much lately because there has been SO much going on.  I had written about the Lord providing in one of my last posts…well He’s been actually showing off (a friend’s term I just love!) in my life lately.

I got a full-time job. Not just any full-time job.  A great full-time job.  A career.  A chance to mingle my education with my experience.  A salary!  Benefits!  A great company!  Work, yes, but in Marketing, which is what I have wanted to do!  I start the day after tomorrow.  What this means to my family is unable to be expressed.  I can finally pull my own wagon.  I can provide for my children and myself.  It’s a recession, for goodness sake! My cup runneth over. 

Then, a friend bought me a vehicle.  Yes, you heard that right.  Her and her husband GAVE me a wonderful vehicle in pristine condition and I am still giddy with the blessing.  Just in time for us when I needed to start a new job and wouldn’t have a way to pick my kids up from school.  Now my daughter can help with driving her and her brother to school.  She got a part-time job also, and it was going to be a real issue with only 1 vehicle.

There goes God showing off again…my cup runneth over!
