Coffee With Jesus

Every morning I spend time reading my Bible. It makes a difference in how the day goes.  My Mom gave me a little devotional book called "Jesus Calling", by Sarah Young, and I read a page each day and then the scripture that goes with it.  Well, as you know, yesterday was not a very good day for me. And last night, even though the leg cramps were not as severe, sleep was not good.  I fully expected another blue day as I poured my first cup of coffee.

When I sat down and opened my little book, this is what today's lesson said:

"Be on guard against the pit of self pity.  When you are weary or unwell, this demonic trap is the greatest danger you face.  Don't even go near the edge of the pit.  Its edges crumble easily, and before you know it you are on the way down.  It is ever so much harder to get out of the pit than to keep a safe distance from it."

My reaction was a grateful heart followed by a fit of joyful giggles.  I showed Tim and we laughed together.

What great timing.  God is so good.

Today was much better.  In fact, today was a great day!

I hope yours was too.

Bunch of Stuff

Lot's of stuff going on here and I'm feeling kind of blue.  Our day at the range was awesome.  I look forward to the next visit.

My son and his wife have separated and we didn't even know there was a problem.  It makes me so sad.  And I'm not sleeping well, in fact I've been up much of the last few nights.  I have bad muscle cramps in my feet and legs at night, and sometimes they keep me walking the floor.  Lack of sleep really gets my spirits down.

Then today I got this in my mailbox:


"This bill bans most modern firearms and magazines, requires that you register the ONE gun you will be allowed to own and allows for warrantless searches of your home.

This may be one of the most extreme anti-gun bills introduced in the nation.See the whole story at the following link:

Yeah, I'm a little blue.
And I'm tired.
So tired......
