Just Being Real, People.

Do you ever feel as if nothing is going right? When it “rains it pours”? Well, that’s how our family has felt recently. If I were list all of the bazaar things that have either happened, broken, been damaged, and so on during the past month, you wouldn’t believe it! And most of it was completely out of our control. That’s the frustrating part.

Last night, I felt like a 2 ton elephant was sitting on my chest! Oh the pressure!! I cried and it’s amazing how therapeutic tears can be. I believe God sometimes wants us to get to the place where we literally throw our hands up to Him and give it up. Oh, not give UP, but give IT up….to HIM….the One who can handle it! His shoulders are broad, HIs ears are big, and His heart is more than willing to pick up the pieces and handle it for us. To quote a dear friend, “Leave it at the cross, Sandi!” And boy, is she right!!!

Today, I begin this day with a spring in my step and joy in my heart waiting to see what God will do! My family is healthy, our blessings are many, and there is love in our home. It’s just the other “stuff” that muddies the water and clutters our minds. If we “let the main thing be the main thing”, everything will be just fine. It may not happen in exactly the manner we expect, but God will make “all things beautiful in HIS time.”

Watching for His hand today,


  1. Aww....Sandi. I hope things start going better. ♥

  2. Love you dear friend and I know that God is with you and your precious family. Choose Joy!

  3. Thinking of you and sending a prayer your way!
