I Need A Hug

Last week was really hard. Just when I think I have it all together...our calendar works, I'm reconciled with our life, I'm fairly sane, I'm happy, the kids are happy...something(s) comes up to throw a kink in everything. I won't go into ALL the details, but I really thought last week I couldn't do it anymore. I knew that if another person said to me "God doesn't give us more than we can handle", I was going to go to say a really bad word and kick them in the shin. (That's about as mean as I get) I'm better now (out of the depths but still pretty low) and the prayers at my house have been flying.

God, you have brought me to my knees. Please help me keep it all together.

"for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through Him who strengthens me." -Philippians 4:11-13
