Lord, Give Me Strength.


I mean it, I really need a little some of that to keep me upright and going right now. I also need a little extra of that strength of character too so that I'll do better at biting my tongue when someone, or some thing, or some entity pisses me off.

And while I'm praying here, Lord, could You see what You can do about sending a Target down here to my area of the delta? This Wal Mart store, that I hate so much, is doing some redesigning and I think they (am I being punished for my hatred of this place?) are trying to cause me to have a screaming breakdown right in the middle of what was the card section 2 days ago, but has become part of the craft section today. For 2 days Lord, I've been trying to find Scott toilet tissue and some paper towels. I looked around as best I could in the time that I had, and even asked "associates" on two occasions about their the whereabouts of these needed items, but I got 2 different answers on two different days and I finally had to give up cause I was very near to a mental collapse by then. (this is also where that bit about strength of character comes in again).

Also Lord, I hope You were looking over my shoulder when I was editing and typing that paper awhile ago. My mind has gotten rusty lately and my body doesn't much care for these late nights followed by the early morning "get ups".

While You're listening, I'd like to mention that I sure need a heap of help with my patience with our babies these days too. Jilly Beans spent the night on Tuesday night and yesterday, two tears escaped from my eyes when she was out of sight long enough to use dusting powder on my chair and carpet while she was munching on a new tube of my lipstick,,, I know Lord, it was my fault for leaving the lipstick and powder on the table beside my chair after I'd removed them from the clutches of a previous perp, but I forget sometimes, and I'm not as diligent about child-proofing stuff as I was once upon a time.

I guess it would be too much to ask for maid service for a month, wouldn't it Lord? I know,, I know,, that's leaning towards the material side of things and I know how selfish that request sounds. I'll just keep plodding on, even though I can't ever seem to keep up with the messes these folks make around this place. Maybe if You send down a little of that strength I mentioned before, I'll manage to at least stay even with them for a few days. If not,,, maybe there's room under the couch and bed to hide some of it.

OK Lord, I'm going to finish this up before You get tired of listening and decide to sic one of those "associates" on me.

Thank You for listening today.

Amen.

I had no idea lipstick was so delicious. I remember eating Chapstick, and erasers, but not lipstick...and I thought doggie-proofing stuff was hard.

Oh wow, you have so much more patience than I do. Especially considering you are low on toilet paper. ;)

Very tough week! I know what you mean about trying to shop. They forever move stuff around in the shops here as well.

He never gets tired and I think Nannaw definitely deserves a much needed break....I suggest a 3-day cruise to the Bahamas.

I'll bet that child had some interesting colors on the other end if she's been eating lipstick! Is it flavored?

I can't imagine how I would handle the daily that are yours. I find myself breathing heavy from the imagined exertion just reading about your day. I will send all my prayers your way.
