Be Thankful...

Wow!  How I wish the pain in my neck and shoulders would subside!  It's not quite as severe, but it seems it just will not leave.  I have a feeling that I may have to see my Chiropractor, in order to obtain relief.

Consequently, when I went to work-out today, I did not use the weights to exercise with.   Still, exercise is exercise.  As I mentioned previously, when a person has physical problems and conditions that affect bones and muscle, it's not an easy task.

Still, God helps me through, daily.  Just as He helps you, too.

Once again, today's weather was just horrible.  Overcast, dreary, rain, rain, rain and more rain!  Yuch!  Hey, it's no longer April; showers should be over!  Instead, we actually set a new record in history.  Unfortunately, it was for the greatest amount of rain during the month of May. 

Since rain continues to be in our forecast, I suppose this means that we will be continually setting a new record daily, until the month ends!  Even so, no matter the weather here, we must be grateful. 

Of course, God told us to be grateful in all things (1 Thessalonians 5:18).  Anyone who has lived a day in this life knows that even though God directs us to do this, it isn't easy. 

Life can be difficult at the best of times, but when weather systems add destruction like they have in various areas of N. America, it can be downright disasterous!  Just look at what happened recently in Joplin, MO, USA.

How awful can life get?  Just take a look!  A friend posted this link on Facebook (FB); I shared it.  Now, I'm posting it here for you, in case you're not a FB friend of mine (yet!).

Notice I didn't say, 'enjoy!'; that's because there is nothing in this link's photos to enjoy.  A tornado about a mile or so wide, literally demolished this area.

As another of my FB friends said to me, we need to pray.  Amen.  We need to be praying, not just for the people who survived, for their trials in life have just multiplied.  However, we truly need to pray for those injured and for the family of those who died.

Please pray.  May God bless you, for this.

Yes, friends.  Like me, you may not be very happy about our weather conditions, but considering what others have experienced, we need to give thanks.


Until next time...
