Not feeling so sorry for me now!

I sat down tonight and opened my computer to write about being home. The first thing that came to me was, “Reality bites!” I thought it was odd, but sounded like something I would say upon leaving a dream setting on the beach and coming home to all the things I need to do, but that phrase has never been a part of my daily vernacular, so I decided to Google it and see what it really meant before I used it. Here is what I found: Best Answer:  Reality bites – just when you think everything is going smoothly the real world catches up on you and bites you on the bot. Reality check – when you are in your own little world then something happens to show you that the way you see the world is not really how it works, it brings you down to earth with a bump. BINGO!

I wondered if you would be surprised by me saying that and the next thought was about how shocked the people who were listening to Jesus must have been when after talking of love He came out with, “Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell? If you have read chapter 23 of Matthew you know that Jesus was talking to the Scribes and Pharisees concerning their hypocrisy! I think they might have been shocked, I know it made them angry! Jesus healed the sick and raised the dead, gave the blind their sight, the deaf were able to hear, but best of all this man that spoke of our need to love each other because “God is love”, who was willing to tell the hierarchy of that day exactly what He thought of them and then giving His life on the cross in the most vicious way you can imagine and then to feel the presence of the Father withdraw from Him, leaving Him to die completely alone.

And all I have to do is clean up the kitchen and start the process of cooking lunch for tomorrow, after putting my things away and getting all the fun of the past week finally all washed away!

Not feeling so sorry for me now, my reality doesn’t bite nearly as awful as I thought, right?

Thank you for stopping by for a visit! If you read my thoughts you will see that I am sometimes serious, at other times sappy or funny, occasionally I am sad and sentimental, but I am always sincere! I am a single mother who raised two children, born ten years apart and different sexes so first it was bows and dolls, pretty dresses and boys! When my son was born it was rough and tumble games, baseball, soccer, wrestling and girls! I am known for my "smile" and for my default answer to any situation, "no problem", which was something I didn't realize I did until it was pointed out to me! I am a moon watcher and a star gazer. I am astounded and feel so small knowing that every creature that has ever walked the face of this earth has gazed upon that same beautiful orb that my eyes can behold on any night when the earth is not wearing her cloak of clouds. My parents have made me the person that I am. Their love, veracity in all areas of life, humor and passion for their work and each other have given me hope that my life can actually be a happy one! Chances are if you are reading this you already know all this but again, I appreciate your stopping by! While you're here hit the "Like" button for me and thanks for checking in!

    No reality doesn’t bite at all. Avoiding reality, now that bites. I enjoyed the women of harvest today. Prayed for your safe travels. I have perfected the art of what I call, “flying by the seat of my pants”. A truer description of my daily activities is being Spirit led. I met Foot today… Found out I know her granddaughters and their parents. God bless. I too, am cooking tomorrow. I am ending my season of emptiness and have entered a season of H. O. P. E. Hang on pain ends. Praising God FOREVER.
