Hi Toben and Joanne- I'm not sure why that is except maybe God gives us those special moments to sustain us. I know I've asked God to encourage me with something, anything, when I'm down and he always seems to do that. Then sometimes I want to be miserable and not accept anything good. Life is just ups and downs. The goal for me is to remain steady. So hard. About the MHD's. I'd suggest to use those sparingly. I was allowed to stay home whenever I needed to and lost a lot of ground with school work. Teachers also have less respect for students who miss a lot. I wish my parents had been stricter. That's just my experience. :-)

I don't believe in Karma because I don't see it preached in the Bible. But I do believe that God is in the little things. How else could anyone explain blow holes on the tops of whales or why he put us on the third planet from the sun - not too hot - not too cold. Just right. He knows your strengths, your weaknesses, and what you can bear. Carry on in prayer and love.

I cannot remember a day that was ever "all good". It's part of living in a fallen world. There will always be bad. Our job is to look for the good and give thanks for the good that we find. Even thank for the not-so-good. But that's the hard part. I think God absolutely cares about the little stuff, good and bad. But I think he cares more about how we react to it.


Hey y'all! I don't believe in karma either - but I know what you mean. God is just. I think he mixes the good with the bad to help us stay close to him. I agree that the bad is from living in a fallen world. I picture God saying "I'm sorry this world is fallen but I hope this makes you smile". I know - for me - the bad tends to pull me back to prayer. I have a tendency to flash angry when traffic is bad, the line is long, etc., etc., but I am learning to thank -yes I said thank - God for this aggravation and pray for a calm spirit. Some days are easier than others. LOL. I am still a work in progress.


Please pray for the Turner family. They suffered a terrible loss this past weekend.


God cares about every hair on my head. I so glad things are going well. I read but do not comment often.

No Karma just the love and grace of an amazing God.


Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.
