I’m Still Free

God never gives us more than we can handle.

Many times I have prayed for God to change my situation or change my attitude. This week he changed that attitude. He granted me a new perspective I was totally not anticipating.

Even for a smart girl sometimes I have trouble seeing the forest for the trees.

Hee hee. I was right. It doesn’t change the suckiness of the world, but I was right. I was not thinking at all about this particular aspect of this particular situation that’s been nagging me, but then … boom … God put all the pieces in place and opened my eyes to it.

And I am free. Just in case any of you have forgotten … God loves us and we are free.

It may also help that I finally finished pulling my tax info together, and I picked up the finished product from my accountant Monday.


Maybe there’s a beach vacation hidden in that tax refund … hmmmm …

I’m always trying to look at things from different perspectives. To be empathetic and consider others’ point of view. I recognize that – and this may come as a shock to some of you – I’m not perfect, and I’m not always right.

But then sometimes I am.

I’m certainly not going to stop considering other viewpoints as I go through my daily life, but I do have to acknowledge that it can lead to me taking on more than my fair share of the blame when conflict arises. Guess what. Sometimes I’m not the (insert favorite expletive here). J

Hey, Sven, would you pretty please bring my fruity drink with the umbrella? More sunscreen would be great, too.
