2 Years & 57 Days and Fighting Discouragement

I have been really fighting being discouraged the last few days. Oh who am I kidding? I've been fighting it for months. Don't get me wrong, I"m well aware of how blessed I am. I have a husband who loves me, fantastic children (who are growing into fantastic young adults), wonderful friends, and a job that I love. But it just seems like things keep going wrong for us. We barely get over the reeling of one financial crisis before another one sends us reeling. I am worried about Tom and his shoulder and just really want him to feel good again. So I humbly ask you to continue your prayers for us, especially for Tom.

2 Years & Days 54, 55, & 56 and a busy week

No, I did not fall off the face of the earth, but I have had a busy week. Besides having stuff to do Monday, Tuesday, and tonight, I have also worked on taxes so I could get them submitted. I was praying that we would get a good refund. I had put off doing them because last year we only got $130something dollars back and so I was not looking forward. But thanks to some new stuff and our lower income last year, we are getting a great refund. That is a huge blessing. That will allow us to get several things caught up AND hopefully get our emergency fund refilled. Keeping my fingers crossed that the refund gets deposited next week!

2 Years and Days 50, 51, 52, & 53 and Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.

5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.

6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come and see the works of the LORD,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.

9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields [b] with fire.

10 "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
