I have so many friends who are hurting right now and I am so sad for them. Some because of their own choices, some because of other people's poor choices and some just because they can't keep their eyes on the one and only Jesus. I believe I fall into that last category right now. I have been so incredibly busy, tired and not feeling all that great that I have allowed my eyes to focus horizantal rather than verticle. My eyes have fallen on my circumstances. (which I might add, to most may not seem very bad at all) Whatever the hurt comes from whether we asked for it or not it still hurts!! I am so convinced that there are so many of us out there who pretend that everything is just fine and we have it all under control when in all reality the only thing we have control over is our reaction. Our reaction to our circumstance is our choice and ours alone. Do I react in a manner worthy of a good witness or do I fail miserably? Lately I would have to say it is the latter. I am going to hop off this post right now and go stick my heart, soul, and mind into His one and only word. The Truth. Oh it won't change my circumstances but I know it can and will change my reactions if I am willing and I believe I am ready to be willing.
Cry when you need to cry, vent when you need to vent, but I pray we can be real with one another and pray for one another without judging cause I don't know about ya'll but I am one sister who does NOT have it all together. :)

I want to wish my Father in law, or as my kids call him Pepere, a wonderful birthday. He has had a tough year this year with carpul tunnel (sp) surgeries and rehab for his hands but he is doing so much better and for that we are thankful. We hope you have a great day! We love you.
I also want to ask for prayers for my nephew Adam. He leaves tomorrow to go back to Iraq til January. I think he has had a pretty good visit but I am sure he is not ready to go back. Please pray that God will keep him safe and that the time will go quickly for him.
Have a great day!
