I figure since the Book of Life is gonna be opened on Judgment Day anyways, and all the deeds of my life written & told whether good or bad- I might as well get a head start & tell it now…this way, no one will be surprised. Yes, I am a Christian. Saved. Sanctified & Love the Lord. I am successful, married & have two sons. I am Blessed. I pray, read my devotions & go to church on Sunday. I am also a human being with human emotions & human issues. One of them being motherhood…

Junk Mail

I’m on my last leg.
Like an old car chugging along- over heated, fuming…finally coming to a halt.
Then the driver emerges to give the old car a push to the side of the road…
You get the picture.

At least that’s how I feel today.
Sensory overload. That’s it.
Especially since I found out a tidbit of news that got me really depressed.

In addition to the fact that I am the one that carries everyone else:
The kids
At the office
In the marriage
In the business I am running

Complaining? No.
Yes.

I think I’ll just take a little afternoon catnap.
Things will be brighter after a little rest…
But before I do - I’ll sort through the junk mail that has been piling up for
a few weeks now. No one else will tackle it.

I pick up a newsletter from Times Square Church.
I open it, and several pages fall out but I read one.
At the very end of the letter Pastor Carter Conlon says:

“You might not feel worthy or strong today, yet in the power of Christ’s love, an incredible plan of God waits to be revealed through you. Take heart and do not despair.More awaits you through Jesus than you could EVER imagine.This is God’s word for you today.”

God’s word for ME today.

Boy, I needed that…. Thank You Lord!!!!!!!!!
The lover of my soul is the one who gives me the push I need all the time.

Guess it’s not all junk mail.

Isn't that how it always happens? Sometimes a deep breath, a good word and a nap(if we can get it) is just what we need.
