Monday Morning Blues



Good Morning My sweet blogging friends!

You know, when I started blogging, I determined that I would be transparent as much as possible.  As much as I love to show you what I am doing, share how to's and decorating ideas...I also wanted to be able to share the *REAL* side of my life.

Usually that is around my faith and what I am going through. 

I didn't sleep well last night due to my BRAIN clicking ON instead of OFF to sleep.  I wrestled, prayed and finally put my ipod songs on so I could drown out the *noise* and hear praise and worship music instead.  It did help, but alas, I still awoke feeling a bit blue today.

Our faith has certainly been stretched since August 2008.  After 14 months, my hubby has NOT yet found work in his field of expertise.  I have watched him day after day spending many hours scouring On-line jobs and putting out his resume, with very little response.  Down and Discourage have become the normal words I feel each day. We have had a few opportunites come and go but nothing with promise.  Looming over us is insurance running out, using our retirement nest egg and a Senior in High School with college nearing.  Overwhelming to my lil'ole human mind.

During a time like this, God always seems to put a very VITAL and much needed song in my path.  And I wanted to share the HOPE he has continued to give me...YOU WERE THERE by Avalon is just that song.  It talks of how through all of History and in the life of a young King David and Abraham he was there.  He WAS, He IS and He WILL always be. Such comfort during an uncertain time, he is here right beside me.  There is a line in this song where Abraham was asked to sacrafic his only son...in a time of being unclear as to the why's..Abraham obeyed and then...Just In TIME GOD provided a lamb...
those words SPOKE to me last night,
I am waiting for our *JUST IN TIME*!

I am sharing the You TUBE Link to AVALON's song YOU Were There...I hope it inspires and touches you today.  May GOD richly bless your lives.  He IS right beside you! He is here!


Love ya...Lorena

Dear Lorena,
Your heart comes through in this beautiful post. You have been strong for so long and an inspiration to all. I know it has not been easy and I know all things happen for a reason. God will lead you where he wants you to be. We just never know how long that takes. In the meantime, He will see you through and take care of all your needs.
L and I will continue our prayers and I know the guys will keep in touch. God Bless you both with a better day soon.
Love to you sweet friend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
