Bring me peace...

The last month has been one of... the weirdest experiances of my life!
*First, suddenly, out of the blue... the microwave just died on me ...
*Second, my vacumn then died on me
*third, my phone deceided that i no longer needed a speakerphone or a bluetooth ear piece.
*fourth, my computer did a simple update, and it almost crashes and i can no longer use firefox
*fifth, i almost dropped out of my bible study as im only on chapter 4 and they are on chapter 11 &12!
*sixth, my windshield cracked again (jeeps, gotta love em)
*seventh, i went through a pregnancy scare (ive got 3! lol)

But those and other things... i took in stride. Kept remembering Ro's new thing "blessings" was doing a good job keeping my head up high, tinkered with the microwave, got a part and it works. Vacume works (have no clue what i did, but it does), found an alternate way to use speakerphone... and on and on... i wont let it bring me down!

But today... I needed milk... im coming into the house, with 2 gallons, and 2 bags of groceries... and... i step... down... on a ... toy ... car... and all i feel is my ankle going out from under me, and actually touching the ground. I have ended up with one of the worst sprained ankles of my life! It hurt so bad, i was laying on the floor crying, and my girls (blessings they are) put the groceries away.

Want to know my blessing from this?

Im resting with peace.

For the first time in months, ive slowed down and with a bad ankle have forced myself to rest. Forced myself to let go that i couldnt make a "perfect" dinner.. cereal! haha... God has opened my eyes this evening to some real peace, that there are times when i just need to slow down and enjoy my family.

Here is a treat for you....

James 1: 2-4
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
