Tough Times

First, I want to apologize for forgetting to post last night. I was actually clearing off some things from my bed when I tripped and fell. I ended up smacking my ribs, knees, and right wrist pretty badly. I’m in quite a bit of pain now, hence writing to you slipped my mind. I will probably be visiting the urgent care later this morning, as my ribs and wrist are still agonizing. For right now, I will post with my phone so that I only have to use my thumbs!

Going to court is scary!

What I wanted to address today (actually yesterday) was some tough times. As some of you may be aware, we are going through some difficult times. Recently I had to go to court regarding my house and foreclosure. It wasn’t pleasant, but I have hope that we can work things out. Then another blow; my child support for children #’s 3 and 4 suddenly stopped. Apparently, my lovely ex lost his job (or quit. I don’t really know) and will not be reached by the proper authorities to pay up. 😔.

Child #2 suggested that I add eyebrows in orange reflective tape along with candy cane stripes on the sides of my dark colored car so that maybe other drivers will start seeing me!!!

Add to that the fact that every time I drive somewhere I nearly get hit and life feels a bit overwhelming. Where, a couple of my children will ask, is God in all of this? Well, here’s the thing. We all have free will, right? So, even though I may be following God, others who do not yet know His great love, do not. This causes strife and sin. That is why we can have so many problems here on Earth!

Just keep plugging away and praying hard. Try your hardest to not to respond with anything but love. After all, those who do not know God’s amazing love are to be pitied and shown the way, not hated.

  1. I’m so sorry about the problems you’ve been facing and I really hope you heal soon. It sucks about the child support- I don’t understand how someone can do that to their own children.
