I've had a couple of interesting
about my blog.
would more accurately describe them.
One of them began with
"I wish all I had to worry about was
what to cook for dinner..."
The jist of the comments was:
(I believe this is accurate)
you always write about
Is this really what your life is all about?"
I'm quite sure my life
is very similar to
many of yours.
I consider myself
But along with all the blessings,
I have my share of
I've mentioned before that I'm a worrier.
Of the very worst kind.
(I mean, seriously,
I have two sons now
in their early 20's.
Can I get an Amen!)
A Big Shout Out to Ben and Nick!
I Love You!
Several years ago I
reached a point
where in order to drive the worries out of my mind
and to have even a CHANCE of falling asleep at night
I had to just repeat
Philipians 4: 6-7
over and over.
"Be anxious for nothing. But in everything by prayer and supplication (with THANKSGIVING!) make your requests known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding will guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus.
A lot of times
I would forget to say the (with THANKSGIVING!) part,
and would make myself start over from the beginning.
I realized that if I concentrated
on the good,
on the joyful,
on the fun,
I could keep my mind off the other.
And heaven help me,
If I constantly had to re-live
the bad stuff
and read it over and over again
(and trust me on this, I am just the type to go back and read it over and over)
I just don't think it would be
But it does work.
(The concentrating on the joyful!)
And I suppose then,
as a result,
"A Happy Blog".
I hope you're OK with that.
It's a matter of self-preservation.
