Tie a knot and hold on

God is Good, All the Time- God is Good! We are being bombarded on all sides with an emotional boomerang thrown in for good measure.    It’s difficult at times to remember that saying and have a core belief that it is the absolute truth. I am seeking employment as it will solve a lot of our issues; certainly financial concerns with medical and prescription insurance and 401K benefits.

Our 5-ton air conditioner stopped working over the weekend. It has a hole in its two coils and the compressor is scrap. It is going to cost $7,900.00 to replace it.  The HOA does not allow window air conditioners- even if we thought we could go that way for a short term.  We have two box fans and one revolving fan to augment our ceiling fans.  The hot/cold weather is hard on Robert with his weakened immune system.

You’ve heard the old saying, “grab a rope, tie a knot, and hang on for the ride because it’s gonna be bumpy for a long time”. That is what we are doing. Satan is sending circumstances to shake our faith and make it wavier if only for a minute. We are plugging the holes in our sinking ship.

When you have hardships you 1st make a list and set the priorities according to needs. It just seems like there are emergencies all the time occurring.  We need a good cruise director to get us through the crisis. Friends are good at listening to the things that we don’t have a gag order about. It’s the gag order that adds to the stress- because the information keeps rattling away in your brain.  But I’d rather know and live with a gag order than not know and wonder what is happening in my families lives.

I’m going to make a list of all the obstacles we have overcome since Feb 6th. I am tieing my knot and hanging on for dear life.’
