"And her adversary also provoked her sore, for to make her fret,...." I Samuel 1:6
I have been getting up early in the mornings this week to have my quiet time, and this verse seems to apply to me today. Hannah had a physical adversary provoking her, I have the devil. It seems like there are alot of things going on at the same time, and i am starting to fret. It is almost Christmas, and like everyone else we are in a money crunch. More like money famine. People are starting to lose their jobs here. Two guys who used to attend church with us lost their jobs on Tuesday. Not layed off, completely gone. As some of you know, Peter is employed at Toyota. We are not sure what his future will hold.
The holidays are starting to overwhelm me. I don't know why, but it happens every year. It's sad but I am starting to not like Christmas. It stresses me out! Family, presents, church things, baking, cooking, homeschooling, housework, a nine month old baby, LAUNDRY, and NO MONEY! There are my feelings in one sentence.
Now that I have written everything, I feel I can safely go on with my day.
