Instead

So for the last two days I've been writing in my head this post about how my family's job situation stinks instead of being stable and secure. And how my house seems to always be a mess instead of the neat, orderly place I desire. And about how I'm tired of robbing Peter to pay Paul instead of having sufficient funds always at hand. And about how someone else is living the life I want instead of me living it.

Instead, I am going to send out to you these prayer requests...

The mother of one of my students (and two others at our school) is lying in a hospital bed and has just been told to get her affairs in order. Please pray for her healing if that's God's will and for her and her family's hearts through it all.

A dear sister in the Lord is awaiting test results that she shouldn't have to be waiting for. Please pray that all is well with her and that all her dreams will come true.

One of the ladies who is in our Bible study group has had a great loss this week. Her son's girlfriend died of a brain aneurysm when he was driving her home this weekend. She was 19. And her dad lost his mother last week. Please pray for that family.


Now you see why my Whiny Wednesday post isn't getting written. Who in the world am I to whine?

I like to throw myself pity parties too. Except that my worries are even far my frivolous than anything you mentioned and sound something like this, "Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, guess I'll go eat worms." So thanks for a little perspective on the day. :)

I will be praying. Thanks, Jen, for the dose of perspective! I've been having a whiny week myself. Nothing big, just a bunch of little things that aren't lining up in neat little rows. Oh, how I love neat little rows.

I wonder if whining spreads around like a cold? Is there a whining germ?

I hope there is, because I'd love to blame it on that. I definitely don't have anything to whine about!
