The Lord never gives us more than we can endure...


Thursday, January 31, 2013

My mother called tonight. They found her cell phone at her house, along with her glasses (which were under the stove, from when she had fallen). She is still in her nursing facility, still very unhappy about it, but she knows she is staying there. Because if I have to go back down, it is not going to go well. Thus, my sister threatens to call me-and my mother behaves appropriately.

The reason for her call was not about her, which was surprising. Unfortunately, I would have rather had it be more of Mom's drama. She called to tell me that my Uncle's son passed away suddenly this week. This is the only child of the uncle who just passed on New Year's day. It was totally unexpected. I feel so sorry for his wife, losing her beloved father-in-law at the first of the month and her husband at the end of the month.

And I am not only still unable to travel, but with Hubs having had no freight all month, I can't even send flowers this time. I will try to get out to get a nice sympathy card to send her, though.

It is just so hard, he was younger than I am! I used to babysit him when our parents went out together. My son was only an infant when I went to his wedding. I can't believe he is gone.

I know that God has promised to be with us in our sorrows, and I know that I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength. But right now, I feel like saying I am quite strong enough, thank you, may I please have a rest from the trials now?


Please Keep me in prayer, that my strength doesn't falter and my faith doesn't waver.

    Oh Seni, I am so sorry. I hope this is the last of the bad news your family has to deal with for a long, long time. You have certainly had more than enough.
