ashes… not such a bad thing

ever had a week where it seemed like everything you touched turned to ashes?
yeah, well, i'm having a week like that and it's only wednesday.
i've alienated my brother…
i hurt a friend's feelings because i am wounded and needy…
i buckeled under the pressure of work and went all linda blair (i'd post a picture of her, but even that just totally creeped me out worse than my own linda blair experience {LBE}) on the hubster… (who, for the record is under more stress… volatile combination there!)
i skipped youth group because i'm sleep deprived and not in full control of my emotions…
can i just say hallelujah that i can trade ashes for beauty?
i mean, really.
how awesome is it when you're having the lamest of weeks that you can leave every burden down at the foot of the cross.
i feel much lighter now.
but i'm still sleep deprived…
so as much as i want to watch the olympics, i think i have a date with my pillow.

  2. What a week. Good thing there's no such thing as an unforgivable sin!

    I came upstairs at nine to read myself to sleep, and Vicki was on-line. We wound up IMing about death (her 5% prognosis), living wills, God, faith, church, and crocheting. I prayed as I typed that God would help me find the best words, but I'm not sure I heard Him.

    Pray for another opportunity for me will you?

    I will continue to pray for you. This brother thing could be a protection, the answer to last weekend's prayer. Do not beat yourself up over it.

  4. Be thankful in all situations. I have been watching each night and I am so pumped that I end up not sleeping well.
    Hope you get some rest. Take care and God Bless.

  6. This is your Brother being not alienated. The volcano that is my inner self finally erupted yesterday at work and released all the builtup pressures. No more family negativity for me, want to follow me again?
    I love you Sis,
