From one mother to another, (Yo. Word to ya motha!) or anyone, for that matter, (aunt, uncle, friend, cousin) who loves a child or children, can anyone tell me how not to worry about a prodigal child?
I’m not trying to be rude, but don’t give me any cliche Christian sayings. Don’t hit me with a bunch of bible verses about not worrying, I know those. And I don’t mean that like it sounds. I’m certainly no bible scholar, nor do I, remotely, pretend to be the perfect Christian. Ultimately, I really do trust God! I promise! But, during the “waiting”, how can we possibly stop ourselves from worrying? I have peace at times, then BAM! Out of nowhere comes the worry and the stress. Judging by my acne, I could easily be mistaken for a 13 year old. Clearly, that would be if someone only saw my acne, and not the rest of my face or this body. Which brings me to something else that ticks me off! Some people get stressed out and lose weight. Not me! Oh no! I blow up like a freaking balloon! Nice. Real nice.
And, just incase anyone hasn’t realized. Just because a part of a person’s life is turned inside out and upside down; doesn’t mean the rest of that person’s life doesn’t keep right on going!! Anyone feel me? Can I get an “amen”? It’s not like you can say, “This person will now take a short break, so that you may hear a word from my sponsors!” “This season of my life was brought to you by – THIS SUX and FORGET YOU!” Nope. You gotta keep on truckin’!
SOO, now that I’ve gotten a few things off my chest, had a chocolate doughnut, a Valium and 10 cups of coffee, I feel SO much better!! Ok, so I haven’t really had any of those things, but a chocolate doughnut would be nice! Plus, I’m rethinking stopping the Prozac, IJS. (For those of you who may not be texting savvy; IJS stands for I’m just sayin’).
Anyway, should anyone feel the urge, say a prayer for me. Particularly that my face would clear up! This is ridiculous! And say a prayer for the rest of my family as well, as this is difficult for everyone, not just me. And certainly say a special prayer for our boy. You know the one that, even though I may go into a rant, or fall apart over at times, I know God has a special plan for? Yeah, that one. God knows what He’s doing! I trust Him! I just wish I could make others do the same :-). Thank y’all so much!
Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. Psalm 71:20
This plan of mine is not what you would work out, neither are my thoughts the same as yours! For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than yours, and my thoughts than yours. Isaiah 55:8-9
