Suck

The Missus and I have both come down with a bad case of feeling like we suck. It's not hard to see why. With finances never really all the way in the black and not going five days in a row with a healthy household for five months we're a little bogged down. I haven't felt like writing, haven't done much more than give the occasional glance at the blogs I read. We're down.

Work sucks, the kids are cranky, everything is either a mess or needs fixing. But that's just another day in paradise right? Looking back tonight we figure it's been more or less like this the whole time we've been married. So we started looking at all the stuff that's better now than it used to be. That helped a little. We asked a few close friends to pray for us too, we have high hopes based on the previous track record with stuff like that.

Anyway, I haven't got much to say excepting that. Mostly I just didn't want anyone to think that I had dropped off the earth. Here's to looking for the bright spots. G'nite.

Dude.
We can totally relate.

We'll certainly be praying for you.. like right NOW.

Yep... you certainly do suck... you suck up the grace God is giving you.

You should be totally excited to be under attack. I know it sounds dumb and probably isn't what you want to hear... but the devil sure does not attack those who wont cause him trouble.

God is using you and had big plans for you and your family. Hang in their brotha!

"We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him"

When things get really sucky, make two lists:

1. The things that went wrong today
2. The things that went right today

And don't leave anything out of list #2. Put in all the stuff you normally take for granted. For example,

- when you flipped the switch, the lights went on
- when you turned the faucet, the water came out
- did everybody in your household eat today?
- when you turned the key, did the car start?
- is there anyone in your household with a life-threatening injury or illness

(You get the idea.)

Life is hard. But don't make it harder by forgetting the good things.

You want a prayer - I'm there for you, Mister.

Hey buddy, not quite sure what to say, but I hope the good things get better and joy comes running round the corner.

Mister: Let me lend you a weedwacker...I've got an extra, and I reckon it'll come in handy.

Strength and blessings to you and the family, my friend. :)
