It was a good, and a lousy day. My job is about to become unbearable - I get to dread that until tomorrow. I'm just now recovering from a three month bout of pneumonia so my house is a wreck, the aforementioned job was almost as bad, lights are glaring at me from the dashboard - the kind of lights that scream 'take me to a mechanic' and my dogs have it in for the neighbor's livestock. Yup, lousy day.
But I actually got quite a bit done today at work (funny how not having pneumonia improves things), I am feeling a lot better, I'm making progress at the house work, the engine actually sounds better than it had been, and my fence repairs have kept in the dogs thus far. I have a friend I called and could tell my troubles to (if my battery had held out I'd have heard more about stuff on her end...), my pets are doing well, I have a roof over my head - with central heat! (People don't appreciate central heat/air until you try living without them). Mr Bank Account may not be all that impressive in size, but he is in the black. I recently paid off the last of my debt. The fridge is full, the closet is a little too full (yard sale time!) and so is my heart.
Whatever comes tomorrow, He is still God. As He has so many times before, He'll handle what I can't and be with me when I feel like crying. I came home feeling sad but I realized that the problem with problems is that they get in your face so much that you lose perspective - you see that huge tree in the way, but not the beautiful forest beyond it. God gives me a forest to live in - who am I to get all huffy about a single tree?
Instead of crying, I feel like singing - He is good!
