I really need to get better with keeping up with this blog!
I saw this on facebook this morning, and thought it would be good to share:
Me: God, can I ask you a question?
Me: Promise u won’t get mad …... …
God: I promise…
Me: Why did u let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late
Me: My car took forever to start
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call
God: All right
Me: And on top of it all off, when I got home ~I just want to soak my feet in my new foot massager & relax. BUT it wouldn’t work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?
God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn’t let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
God: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick & I didn’t want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn’t afford to miss work.
God: Your phone went dead bcuz the person that was calling was going to give false witness about what you said on that call, I didn’t even let you talk to them so you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see God
God: Oh and that foot massager, it had a shortage that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn’t think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I’m sorry God
God: Don’t be sorry, just learn to trust me…..in all things , the good & the bad.
Me: I will trust you
God: And don’t doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won’t God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God: You’re welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I love looking after my children…
Yes, it is a little dramatic, but so true how everything happens for a reason.
And to update on our lives lately...We had a wonderful Superbowl party again this year and it is always so much fun. I had all intentions of taking some pictures of everyone and all of our amazing food (bacon wrapped chicken bites in brown sugar & honey sauce, spicy mexican layer dip, veggies & french onion dip, Velveeta sausage dip, buffalo chicken dip, pepperoni pizza dip, spicy smoked ribs, and football cake pops). We are very blessed to have our home that can fit a good number of people. Speaking of our home--can you believe we have been there for over a year now?! We moved in on January 20th 2011. Time flies! We love our home so much, and it is really fun to see how it is slowly but surely transforming as we continue to decorate and remodel.
And lastly, Jake got our Xbox Live account fixed, so we were finally able to set up the Kinect system that I got him for his birthday. Let me tell you, it is very fun and a very good work out! I have even been going to the gym lately and my legs are still killing me because we were so excited to have it hooked up we played it for about 2 hours. So far we have only played the Adventures game, which I highly recommend. We also have two game vouchers for Fruit Ninja and another game so we will be trying out those soon, too.
That's all for now...have a nice day!
