Yesterday, I was blog hopping, stopping by and visiting new friends when I happened upon a blog post where a friend of a friend who was only 30, a junior pastors wife if I read correctly and had two children and was 35 weeks along with her third child, was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. It happend upon her in about two months time and is so agressive the prognosis is bad. Her baby was delivered by C-section. I was just devistated, my question, why do bad things happen to good people, mostly Godly people. One of my questions to God when I meet him. I prayed for this young lady immedately on the spot. To be so young and not see your babies grow up is just unimaginable. I must go back and read the book, "When God Doesn't Make Sense."
From that blog I went to another who was offering a "Blessings" book as a prize. THAT blog got me thinking about all my blessings. I must say I have had heartache but I been blessed beyond means too. Sometimes I complain about stuff that doesn't even matter in the big picture and then I go, "Why me, me. me, me." THEN I read a blog like above and it slaps me in the face of reality. There are people far worse off then myself. I have my home, job, fantastic husband and children, food on my table, the good health of my family, WHY then do I complain? I have no good answer
My sis gave me the idea to make a prayer book a while back. She makes these fantastic journals from just a composition book and so I decided to make one with my scrapbooking stuff. I have begun to write down my prayers and when they are answered I write it down also so I can see what is happening in my life.
Today is Sunday, let's pray and count our blessings and for those less fortunate.
