A Very Bad Day

A Lost Wallet
A Collection Notice
A Broken Alternator
A Crock pot of Food Never Turned On

Frazzled Nerves
Loosing Temper
Angry Words
Tears.

A Freezer Dinner
Husband's Helping Hands
Desperate Prayers
Bed At Nine

A New Day
Cup of Coffee
Good Morning Kiss
Forgiveness

God's Love
Grace Drizzling In
Smiling Faces
Found Peace


FYI: After some tear filled phone calls, the collection notice ended up not being anything and I'm actually getting a refund. The wallet is still lost and I'm getting new credit cards and a driver's license soon.  The new alternator in my husband's car is being installed today.   God is good. Now I just have to work on offering it up a little more gracefully!

Oh, I'm sorry you had such a bad day.

Sometimes we need those days where all we can do is pray to St Michael and cry.

It makes the ordinary days extraordinary.

hoping you have an ordinary day today!

Praying for a great day for you! The rain has stopped, the sun is shining, it's looking better already!

oh Sarah, been there, done that! God always works it out doesn't he?

Dear Sarah,
I agree all those things can add up to a lot of stress.
Prayers for your ability to cope when this happens and a bright new day for you too.
Blessings
Gae

Oh, Sarah. How we understand!! And I love how you want to offer it up. Sometimes our bad days are the only things we have to offer to Our Lord, and it's so good that we do! We just have to remember to do it.

Also want to tell you that your confirmation rosaries and gifts are gorgeous!!

My mother loves the Immaculate Heart rosary I gave to her for Christmas.
