4 things today…

Daylight Savings Time is rough! Does anyone else think we just shouldn’t do this daylight savings thing anymore? Everyone’s inner-peace was out of whack in our household. We did take a wonderful walk to the park yesterday. It was a beautiful 67 degree (I am guessing) day. This is the glorious sunrise I woke up to this morning.

“This is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” ~Psalm 118:24

That’s all I can really say.

Our old Beagle, Bailey, won’t eat…dog food, anyway. She has Cushing’s disease. She is 14 years old. She has to take daily medication to control her disease or she will die. She has done this before, not eat dog food, and I have made her homemade dog food. Our vet said we can cook up some rice with chicken broth with carrots and broccoli. Tonight was a treat for Bailey: eggs with rice and some dog food mixed in. (I tricked her!)

I mostly listen to K-love radio, except at work. I stream the local rock station on my computer. They play the same 20 artists over and over again, all-day-long. I hear Katy Perry’s song, “Firework” about eight times in an eight hour period.

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?

Do you ever feel already buried deep?
Six feet under scream, but no one seems to hear a thing…

It was like she wrote this song for me. This is exactly how I felt this weekend. The girls couldn’t be in the same room more than 3 minutes without fighting. Glenn is still sick. I am feeling like a single parent. There is was too much running around. Too much on my to-do list. Too much juggling. I am stressed and anxious.

After a hurricane comes a rainbow…

And then that is the punch line. Okay, so, maybe it’s not that deep or spiritual. Is He speaking to me through Katy Perry? Maybe. Stranger things have happened. After all, it was just what I needed to hear at that moment. Just hold on…it will change…it’s just a moment. It maybe a crazy-pull-your-hair-out moment, but it won’t last forever.

Just don’t forget to look for the rainbow.

And finally. Just pray. Pray for Japan. Pray for the families. Pray for the lives lost and the lives saved. Pray for the long road ahead.

  1. things can change in a blink of a eye. And things may never be the same again. And when you think you can do no more.. think of that faith as small as a mustard seed and know that he is always with you.


  2. ok 1st, totally agree about this time change thing…rocks my world, 2nd, absolutely beautiful sunrise…there is no greater artist than GOD! 3rd, precious dog, we had to feed our chinese shar-pei the same diet for a while to keep him from losing his hair & lastly, it is often in the chaos of our life, God will send a message that will remind us that HE is ever present and you’re completely right…it’s just a moment!


    1. Wow, thanks again. I agree that He shows up in the most unexpected places at times. I am always amazed.
