Our lives are very complicated. Money? well yeah, that would be nice. Please pray for some kind of break through. I just want some relief.


Sometimes I wonder why God gave me so many children if I can't even provide for them and raise them at the same time???


ok..............that was a vent. I'm sure I will feel better tomorrow..........or maybe later in the week!


Mark and I exploded yesterday. Not something I don't do very often............in fact I don't think I've done it in about 3 years.


Just a say a little prayer for me.......thanks!

Honey, must have been something in the air because I flew loose on DH yesterday. I'm blaming it on hormones. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. I am normally the voice of calm and reason but yesterday I was the voice of hostility. I feel just awful about it today. All I can say is that my children will know that women are sometimes a little unstable.

I'll be in prayer for you honey. God blessed you and Mark with those beautiful children. He will always provide a way. Sometimes His ways are not ours and we have to adjust. Just know that every adversity in this life is molding God's character into you. I pray for you and Mark daily. ((HUGS))

Love,
Robin

What was it yesterday? My goodness!


I'm sorry you were possesed as well;) I feel bad for not keeping my cool, but he was really being a fart! That is not making excuses for my rage. I was clearly wrong to react in that manner. I just want to see the tension leave our home. It just seems that money is always the root of the issues. He lost 3 important loans on Friday due to people lying about their financial situations. Those loans made the difference between making it, and not even coming close. This struggle has just been too long. I know tht's why he was acting so rudely.


I want, like mad, to go to work, but if I do that it will be devastating to the kids. I know that I can't possibly homeschool and work a fulltime job. And a partime job wouldn't be enough. All the while, I know that God will come through. He is faithful. I've just grown tired of it all.


Thank you for the prayers Robin. You are such a faithful prayer warrior! I'm saying prayers for you as well!! This too shall pass and we will look back and say; Wow, God is faithful!

I was hoping things were moving along better for Mark at his job. I guess I hadn't talked with you for so long I didn't even think about it. I'm sorry. God will provide. As for working outside the home, it was quite hard for me to go back to work fulltime. My kids absolutely loved pre-school and then elementary school. It hurt my feelings so badly that they adjusted so well, that I was an emotional wreck. I am the "bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan" person in our family. I have been for some time. I worry that I'm too tired to have meaningful time with the boys but somehow I always manage. I'm not saying you should go back to work, that is a decision between you, Mark, & God. I'm just saying my kids transitioned well. I, on the other hand, did not. I am sort of a control-aholic and always thought I'd be a full-time stay-at-home mommy. God had other plans for me. What is that saying? "If you want to see God laugh, tell him your plans." It's just plan exhausting when finacial worries seem to dictate your every move, you just get rundown. Before long, things will be better and you will have the certainty of knowing that you are STRONG and that your faith is unshakeable. You are surrounded by prayer warriors who cover you with prayer daily. "And now, Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in You." Psalms 39:7

< He has many illegal aliens that are trying to buy a house. They can do it if they have the right papers ( which really makes me rather mad!) >

Why? How did your ancestors get a house and land? Did they come to North America and ask nicely? Did they kill or drive away the people that lived there before? Did they simply wait until others killed the original inhabitants and then moved in? What have you done to deserve to live in a rich western country? What have the illegal imigrants done to deserve to live in a poor country? Maybe, when you ponder these questions you will be more understanding.

What do ALL miracles have in common? Prayer...? No, there are miracles in the bible that did not involve prayer. Faith...? No, there are miracles of faithless healings, too....

But the one thing that ALL miracles have in common is.... a problem. All miracles start with a problem, a need.

I hope you are encouraged (as I am) that when we face a problem, a situation that surpasses are ability, a need that appears overwhelming.... That's the first ingredient to a MIRACLE!

Amen. God is the god of Miracles and they happen everyday in the 21th century.

thank you for your faith. thank you for your faithfulness. In Jesus name, Amen.

Love,
