So what's your problem?

I'm already on Facebook TOO MUCH. And now I've found Pintrest. OH BOY! And I feel guilty that I'm not "keeping up" with this blog. My problem of spending too much time on the computer is SO MINIMAL compared to what others have to deal with. Seriously. I need to get over myself!

I have a friend who has just found out she has to MOVE within two weeks. And she has a young daughter. And her car is not working. AND she just separated from her husband. Seriously praying for her!

I have another friend who is a mommy to three young daughters. Her good friend and mom just started chemo for breast cancer. And at the same time, she found out that she has cancer. CANCER! At 39! When she has 3 daughters to raise! Seriously??? I'm praying hard for her and her family.

Another friend's father-in-law just passed away. And now her mother-in-law is in the hospital. Oh my! How much can a family take? Prayers being sent!

I found out about a former coworker who's daughter - 33 years old - DIED suddenly. She was at home and having an asthma attack. She wasn't able to get her medication but did call 911. There were 3 dogs at her house, one is a pit bull. The EMS were not able to get into the house in time. Her two children came home from elementary school a little while later. While the police & ambulance were still in the road. Praying HARD for these children who are now without a mother. And for my former coworker - how do you get through your own child dying? How is that possible?

The title to this post sounds super sarcastic. It's not meant to be sarcastic at all. There's just so much going on and it's all so hard. Only prayer can get you through these kinds of "hard" situations.

And I'm worried about spending too much time on the computer? Oh please!

Ephesians 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
