Morning Thoughts

I have a sponsee who has been sending me the same text everyday for 2 weeks "officially checking in. have a great day."  I guess she hasn't noticed that I have not been "officially" acknowledging this.

There are 4 black women in one of my service committees that all have beautiful wigs they wear to big events.  I live in a huge city and I've never seen a wig store but I'm obsessing about wanting to try on a wig.  These women really look fabulous.

I have a dear friend who is going thru the awful awful heartache of finding out her spouse is having an affair.  There is no other pain in the world that equals this and I don't have the heart to tell her that the pain gets worse as it sinks in.  This is a deal breaker in my book, but we all have different books.

I am wondering what God has planned for me today.  I am wondering also if I will be able to "see" it as it presents itself.  I believe that God plans great things everyday for me and most of the time I miss it because I am preoccupied with stuff that really doesn't matter.  Today I will strive to keep my heart tuned in to listening for Gods whispers.

The lack of trust is hard to recover, if ever. I am sorry that your friend has such heart ache. And yes, there are different books. Have a good Monday, Pammie.

My book is like yours Pammie. 2/3 of mine ended that way.

It's a deal breaker for me too. I pray for your friend to find peace quickly and keep connected to her support structure for dear life. It's terrible to process through those feelings and that reality. I've been through it. I'm grateful to God for providing me with a spouse who believes in fidelity as we have both expeirenced the pain of infidelty and ... a spouse who is willing to live with me in honesty and openness. It's not been easy as I've found that old streak of worry and jealousy pop up in certain circumstances, but thankfully, we live through it and find that if our reliance is upon God to provide, we have enough. Enough to get through, enough to move on, enough to see miracles and experiences with relationships in trust... in time.

God has planned that you will not smoke cigarettes today & henceforth. as your quote in your missive today "I believe that God plans great things everyday for me and most of the time I miss it because I am preoccupied with stuff that really doesn't matter." Smoking cigarettes don't matter.

Wig Mart by Sears on Main Street @ Richmond. Great selection. They even have a stylist that does drag wigs. You'll be in good hands there.

I would give anything to have the pain of a cheating spouse than to live with my daily pain of heroin stealing my baby boy away forever. I know its all relative and different, but just sayin..

Cheaters suck. So does heroin.

The worst pain ever, for me. Even worse than the death of my mother. In fact it helped me understand the depth of her sadness.

Pammie said...
