Ouch! That will leave a bruise!


Thought for the Day: Success isn't how far you got, but the distance you traveled from where you started.

I got some troubling news over the weekend. It really wasn't a surprise but it did hit me quite hard once it had been confirmed.

If you read my post today over at Lazy Daisy Log then you will know that this news is now
red flagged for me. Red Flagged in that it now becomes not an uneasy speculation but a confirmed area for concentrated prayer. My first response was tears (but then I cry easily, even during commercials!)

After further conversation, I am now more convinced than ever that my job is "to say little and pray much!". It is a great source of comfort for me to know that God is in control and that I can trust Him with the details. The news brought me to my knees (yes, it was a painful trip in more ways than one!) and to the throne .....not the phone.

In the past....I would naturally reach for comfort food (preferably chocolate or turn to my old friends Ben and Jerry) but it had no appeal to me this time. So it was a small victory, but a victory none the less!

I'm sorry for not going into details but this is one area that is too close to the heart to share.

Daisy Dilemma: How do you deal with heart break?

Labels:

I deal with heartbreak by shutting down. I know that's not the better way to do it, though. I just wanted you to know that I love you, and am praying for you ((((HUGS))))

Well, of course, you know I'm worried now. And I'm praying. And I hope you're going to be okay.

Daisy - I cry too, my heart is reaching out to you.
