Can You Relate?

I sat down to clean my indox this week.  After reading some recent emails Robynn and I had written to one another, I wondered if you might be able to eMpaThiZe with some of our topics of conversation:

Robynn: “I’m procrastinating this morning. For the past several months I feel like I get into a (small) funk every Sunday morning. I find myself not wanting to go to church. I always say to Scott, “Can I use my “freebee” voucher today for a “free” Sunday. (I do plan on using that this winter sometime when the weather is cruddy, but you can’t use that on a perfectly good Sunday.) Anyway, I’m subjecting my “don’t want to go” feelings to my priorities and I know that today as always I will walk out of church glad I went. But until then….

I look forward to hearing all about your weekend. Mine was busier than I had hoped for it to be (which is one of the reasons I think Sundays I want to stay home) but I did finish my room and can’t wait for you to see the “make-over” on Wed. (Or maybe sooner.)

Well, better finish getting ready for church.”

Lara: “Thanks R. I appreciate the feedback on my post b/c I always seem to doubt what I am writing and if it is being too repetitive. BUT, like we said, we need to not over think what we are doing. That is what was on my heart yesterday, so that’s what I wrote about!

(Our dog) Grace is still missing. We are really sad and miss her so much but trying to stay positive that someone will find her and call us soon. Pretty stressful day yesterday with a flat tire first thing in the morning, Grace missing, and oh…Garrett choked on a grape at lunch and I had to call 911. It was so scary.

Ready to start a new day today. Glad God is by my side. Thank goodness for my faith to get me through the rougher days…and rejoice with me in the good ones!”

P.S. Someone found Grace!  The tire got fixed!  Garrett survived the choking episode and Robynn was glad she mustered up the energy to go to church!  And life goes on…

    Most of us can readily tell someone what went wrong during our day, but we are sometimes slow to recognize all the things that went right or without incident. It’s easy for us to get caught up in the negativity of life, but in hindsight isn’t it interesting how things usually tend to work out? God is good ALL the time… that’s his “saving Grace!”

  2. So true! I LOVE that! Thanks for the comment. Great start to my day :) ~Lara
