SICK OF BEING SICK AND HOPING TO HAVE MORE FAITH, BELIEF AND HOPE

Tonight, as Phil was closing his prayer--for family prayer--he asked that our hope, belief and faith would be increased. I thought this was exactly what I needed to hear and hoped I would be able to have those blessings. I had to stay home today, sick and worrying, worrying way too much and wondering if I had more faith would things be all right or would I just be able to handle them better? I believe, but I need to believe Christ when he tells me to lay my burden's at his feet. And if I had more faith I would know that no matter what, it will be all right.

I just listened to a Devotional speech by Deborah Dean, who teaches English at BYU. It's here. I have printed her talk and will take it upstairs to read. it's called "Strategic Writing, Strategic Living."

So, I am going upstairs to take yet another Oregano capsule, drink more water and go to bed where I will ponder these things.

Fine thoughts and thanks for the link to the devotional speech.

Isn't so "funny", we often have no problem putting our little problems at God's feet, but the big ones tend to be harder to put down! I think it's human nature. A reminder is all we need now and then. It's very difficult to feel out of control, even though we all know deep down Who has the control! [giggle] Hang in there!

I hope you are feeling better today. What does oregano do for the system?

If only we all had a little more faith.

I drove past your humble city a couple of times last week.. on our way to and from Cache Valley... I sort of waved as we passed by. Saw a lot of blue shirts that Saturday in Lehi Walmart... I felt really out of place wearing brown..
