Well, all I can say is Satan is after us for some reason-the last few months we have had our share of bad things happening and after today I just wanted to throw in the white towel and surrender but I am gonna fight instead and just think that God has something mighty planned that he wants us to be a part of instead!
Mike was in a car accident this morning. It was not good and since he was the one turning into traffic even though the other guy must have been going way over the speed limit-Mike is at fault. The car is not drivable and we had to have it towed and know nothing at this point about the damage but we are praising God that the kids were not with him and he and the other party are all ok.
The car is a mess and now we are down to one car-but praise God we have rental up to a certain amount on our insurance so we are looking into that currently until we know what will happen with our car.
I know bad things just happen-we live in a world where bad happens to both good and bad people every day and there is no rhyme or reason to it all because we live in a sinful world. But Satan is having a field day with all of this that has happened the last month and a half and I feel like I am drowning some days.
I had to step down from my job last week since we will be homeschooling Alyssa in the fall and they changed the rules and Analeigh is no longer allowed to come to work with me. So that income is gone now too. We started getting Brandon's medical bills for his hip and they are out of this world-now we have the ones that will start from his broken arm that should have never happened. Everything that was stolen from our car will not be replaced since it is under our home owners insurance and the deductible is higher than the amount of what was stolen. Our refrigerator died two days ago and we had to go purchase a cheaper new one or lose all our food-I burnt my arm on the stove today-Alyssa fell and has a injured foot.
The list just keeps going on and I am a weary mama-I so need a break some happy news-and yet I almost feel guilty saying that because in all of these circumstance things could have been so worse.
Brandon's hip could have been cancer but it wasn't-his surgery went well and he is recovering-even though the school was at fault with his arm-it could have been worse-it could have required surgery or it could have been his hip. Alyssa's foot is just sore-a sprain we all think. The items stolen from the car are in the big picture just "things" and at least it wasn't our home. Again the car can be fixed or replaced-the kids weren't with Mike and he is fine-just mentally shaken-but he could have been in the hospital or worse even killed and he is fine. My burnt arm will heal in a day-only second degree and so life is good, God is good, we are good and so blessed. My human heart is just a little sad today and we are trying so hard to be debt free and give money where it is needed and get ahead to do for others and every time we get two steps ahead, something happens and I feel like we go back 5.
Trying to be thankful and not whine I feel like that is all I have done the last month with my blog-I really am going to make a promise that my next post will be nothing but praise and thankfulness. I am going to write in my journal right now everything I have to thank God for.
God is good all the time, all the time God is good. Thanks for you letting my cry on your blog shoulders-I needed to vent and my poor hubby just is sad himself today and didn't need to hear this from me!
On this Pathway-
