I Feel Somewhat Stronger Today

I woke up a little bit later than I usually do. Of course, I took a drive to near Lake Huron, to spend a little time in prayer. I'm convinced that God is watching over my life, in a big way. Not because I'm such a good person, because I'm just like all the rest of you. I have good days and I have some bad days. Yet, in my heart I have been instructed to never throw in the towel. Giving up was always my first choice, but not any more. I guess I'm finally becoming the mature grownup, that I've been called to be. Happiness is a personal choice, to seek and find pleasure in this world. It's out there, we just have to look for it, every single day. And what we're looking for, we will find it! Photo: Mine

I remember a preacher once saying, “God may be slow, but He’s always right on time!” When we set our clocks to His time things improve for us! I don’t throw in the towel, I hand it over to Him and let Him help. Have a blessed day!

Emotionally, I haven't been OK for the past couple weeks. I miss Kobe, very much!

@kobesbuddy I know. It's hard. We still miss all of our dogs that we've lost over the years.

I understand just giving up. But thank you for sharing this with us. I always get the feeling that God stopped caring about me. I have a lot of spiritual and Christian books I have put into my Kindle over the last eleven years I have had it, and plan to spend some quiet time in the morning reading them every day. Have a super day! is that Jay in the picture with you? he is very handsome besides being so nice!

I am glad to know that you are feeling better. Being alone close to the nature is the best moment to enjoy our alone time.

I love being able to simply be happy. Used to be I'd start out happy and end up stressed out by 5pm, not anymore thank heavens.

You have the right attitude, I always start with a morning prayer and keep myself thinking positively throughout the day,

If I don't start my day in prayer, the rest of it seems to flounder all over the place!

Two weeks ago, I wanted to throw in the towel. This week, I'm far beyond that point in my life. @HazySue
