Days that you just need your Mommy!

Thursday, July 17, 2008

This has been a stressful week. Very busy and emotional.
1. Already feeling a bit hormonal. Maybe it is because Don is going on the road tomorrow.

2. Did a stupid thing and gave way too much money for a paper expecting change- like I was going to actually get it. I did what I tell people never to do: Give the money before you get the change.

3. Today I heard that a fellow missionary is in trouble. Something happened to her. Not sure what. She lives in Uganda. Someone said that a disc in her back slipped. She can't move her legs. She had to be airlifted out of Uganda. Please pray for Aurora.

4. Today I was at the grocery store and had got distracted just long enough to have my purse snatched. The good news is that there was very little money in my purse. My purse sized Bible was in there. I do hope the thief reads it.

So I just want my mommy!!! There are days you just want the love of a mom.

I will take the love of my friends and thank God for you.

    Ain't that the truth! Here is a great big emoticon from me.

    Things happen for a reason. It may be that the thief will open your bible and realize the error of his wrong-path and this incident will help to straighten him out. We can pray for his enlightenment.

    My prayers will also go out to your friend Aurora. I love that name. It was my great-grandmother's.

    Have a better day today! emoticon

    Oh, Mary. I'm so sorry that you got your purse snatched! My question is, did you have your ID and Drivers' license inside? Those are so difficult to get sometimes in a foreign country. You have had a rough week but still the Lord was and is with you!!

    There's NOTHING like a mom...except for the Lord, that is! I'm so sorry to hear about Aurora (I will definitely pray for her) and your purse-snatching incident.

    Many years ago-I was pregnant at the time with my youngest son, who is now 22- I had my purse snatched right off my shoulder as I was leaning in the car buckling my 2 year old into his carseat. There was no way I could run after him so I just kind of shouted out. A couple of kind men in the parking lot came running to my aid, but the young man hopped in a "getaway" car that pulled right up to him and they sped away.

    I didn't have much money in it, but I did have personal information, my driver's license, checkbook and...a pocket bible! I struggled with my emotions, having felt very violated. I eventually prayed and the Lord helped me to forgive the men, and it was then that I was able see their desperate need for Christ. I prayed that the Lord might use the bible to reach them. The next afternoon I received a call from the police department saying that a young man had returned my purse DIRECTLY to the police and said that he had been the driver of the car and didn't know what his friend was doing until it happened. He said they had initially gone through my purse but he was able to talk his friend into letting him have it so he could return it to the police. I have no idea whether it was seeing or reading the bible, or whether the Lord just convicted his heart to turn himself in, but I do believe that God definitely answered prayer! I will be praying that God will also do a work in the heart and mind of the person that took your purse as well, knowing that our God can accomplish great things for His Kingdom.

    I will pray for your friend. I think you are a wonderful woman for hoping the purse snatcher reads your bible. I hope he/she reads it too.
    There are days I need my mommy too!!!

    I am so sorry for your run of bad luck. But how nice of you to hope that the thief reads your Bible! Without the bad times, we couldn't enjoy the good times -- which I know is small consolation when you're in a run of bad luck.

    I hope your missionary friend recovers quickly & fully.
