Stone Soup for Five: When I am down...

When I am down...

Right now life is pretty interesting around here.

My toilets smell like pee, 
and no amount of bleach seems to take care of it.
.
.
.
.
.
My grass is dying. 
Again. 
Still.
.
.
.
.
.
The garden is fizzling out and it never got started.
.
.
.
.
.

Sin is UGLY.
Training and disciplining sin is HARD,
and I'm struggling, REALLY struggling, in knowing HOW to do it.
.
.
.
.
.
Praying is an act of endurance for me... 
I often feel they don't reach through the ceiling.



So what am I to do?

Wallow in my misery?
Complain?
Give up?

Early this morning two posts blessed me.
Encouraged me,
Gave me hope.

To pick up my Bible
To open my prayer journal
To come to my knees before the One I love more than any other.
And to hope.

Today I am thankful 
for blogs that speak to my weary mother's heart.
