This week has been both a let down and a joy.
Erin’s Christmas present did not get shipped in time. But she did enjoy coming over Christmas Eve and playing with Mickey. Brandon is so enjoying his ear pods. Mickey has grown a bit in just a week. Guess that means he’s happy 🙂
I shared with John via email that I have been struggling with images that keep popping into my head at the oddest of times. And I feel the need to share with you all as well. It’s not sexual things popping into my head but rather dreams/images of Brandon or Angie being killed in a car wreck. It’s wearing me down emotionally. Please pray that they freaking go away before I go bonkers!
But as I sit here on this rainy Sunday I am in awe of what God has done this week.
Allow me share a small story. I shared this image to my Facebook story the other day…
And last night I got a call from an old friend from high school. We haven’t talked since school but he reached out to me last night to share his story with me by calling via Facebook Messenger. What a humbling experience to hear him thank me for the inspirational things I post. By the grace of God my friend is two years clean and sober from alcohol! As with any addiction it almost cost him everything…his wife, kids and job. He surrendered his life and has had no desire for alcohol at all! What a pleasure it was to chat with an old friend for over an hour on the phone hearing him talk about his wife, cooking and his relationship with God.
I also had the honor of explaining circumcision to some of the guys at work after Big Dee read from his Bible app the other day. He didn’t understand the spiritual aspect of it.
Brandon keeps sending me Snaps 😍
Some of them are precious and some are down right hilarious looking🤪
He wanted to watch the second chapter of It. But he didn’t want to watch it Friday night so he wouldn’t have nightmares but then he overslept and couldn’t watch it. I’m glad he didn’t see it. It was harder than the first one to watch. But there was one good part in the whole movie and that was at the end when they are chilling in the lake after defeating the evil alien clown and loosing one of their friends during the battle.
It was a scene of the love of friends. A group hug as one started crying over the loss of that friend. It reminded me of my friends from Camp of the Pines where I counseled all those years ago. We are friends forever. And if one is hurting we all hurt. Trust me if we all could be with that person during their hurt there WOULD be the biggest group hug.
Then I watched the new movie Overcomer, the new Kendrick brother’s movie. You know the brothers who made Fireproof, Courageous, Flywheel, Facing the Giants and War Room. Overcomer is a great addition as it focuses on the power of forgiveness. This is one of those films you do not want to miss!
I did get to talk with Angie Friday for a little while. She has been sick for the past week with some stomach bug. She could not keep any food down, missed a few days of work and pretty much missed a whole day as she slept trying to recoup. She is doing better now thank goodness! I have missed her sweet voice. She and her boys had a good Christmas despite her feeling ill. And I have so thankful for their time together!
Guess who I am going to see in February…
This will be my 15th time to see Stryper live👏👏👊🤘
I’m already excited!!
As we look towards the new year I will continue with the Daily Inspiration posts and hope I don’t miss a day or something like I did this year. So I apologize for the slight error and will have two posts on the 31st.
On the first I am starting a men’s Bible Study on the You Version Bible app if any men want to join in here is the link…
I would like to read Fight Devotional For Men with you.
I wish everyone a safe New Year’s and do not party to hard!
Oh yeah…I saw this and thought of you Steve 😂😂😂😹😹😹
