We’ve been through favorite jeans ripping, computers messing up, phones not working, fighting daily for too many years in an unhealthy situation, homelessness (three times now,) receiving help from low income aid offices, surgeries, illnesses, deaths of pets, bullying, molestation (starting when I was a 9 year old little girl,) rape(s) at church camp and at college (rape is always a rapist’s fault,) car wrecks which totaled our car(s,) another car a long time ago which was lost back to the bank because we could not afford it, a house lost due to bankruptcy several years ago, divorce (twice actually which was never in my daydreams when I was a little girl dreaming about my future,) rumors spread, more rumors spread, people walking away from us (but they don’t know what they don’t know so we aren’t even angry about it,) bad hair days, and so much more that would threaten to steal faith from anyone surviving all this stuff.
But then today…
TODAY… the coffeemaker broke.
One has limits….
But even so we will say “Not today, satan.”
As for me and my house, we will still praise The Lord.
[Praise God that He uses the unlikely! Reading through this small list sure reminds me how well I fall into that category.]
