This week flew by!  There is no other way to describe it.  My plan: to get my Monday post up on Wednesday and be done with catching up.  It flew out the window!

Finishing a nursing course and getting ready for a garage sale next week have been filling my days.  My work schedule changed allowing me to finish the nursing course earlier in the week and renew my license…just in time for April.  One major job DONE.  Was I happy to have that off the list!

The change in work days meant my other plans had to be adjusted.  I worked and sorted for my sale.  No time left for blogging this week.  We’ll get to the Love of God next week…I promise!  Fortunately, He isn’t going to change between now and then.  That is a comfort during stressful times!

Now, on to Five Minute Friday.  I won’t wade through the rules this time.  You can read them on Gypsy Mama if you want to, where we are linked with others doing the same thing!  Thanks for joining me.









People talking…too loudly!

children playing

babies crying


musical instruments

cymbals and bells



What do I do?

Return loud in kind?

Or allow a soft answer to turn away wrath?

Do I enjoy the noise of people and children now while they are here with me?

Or do I allow myself hours of misery

Because I want quiet and relief…

and I want it NOW?

Is peace and silence my goal?

Or do I want relationships with family and friends…

even though they must fit into the inconvenient cracks and crannies of my life?


And then there are headaches…                                        (stop)

Whether real or figurative.

They are always inconvenient and painful.

They are also a warning.

Drink more fluid!

Get enough sleep!

Know your physical limits and be wise!

Learn to pass on some of the responsibility to others.

Give the responsibility of the results to ME!

You are forgetting whose Father you belong to…and living Life as an orphan.



“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  

Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,

for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  

For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”  

Matthew 11:28-30
