Dancing in the wind....

Last week I did a lot of stumbling...
   I've tried blaming it on the wind.....
(If you've ever spent time in Rexburg, you know what I mean)

After all was said and done (and cried out),
my sweet friend sent me the above quote
 and it fit perfectly.

This particular new dance I am  trying to do 
is hard,
and I will stumble and cry and hurt....
but it is part of my life
and I want to do it well.
 Last week,
my silly back was still hurting,
I missed Alain terribly,
& I got the flu...
 right in the middle of a" young women activity at my home on Wednesday...
I wanted to just pull the covers over my head.

In the nick of time,
Prayers were heard & answered,
Family & friends encouraged,
Sweet service was rendered...
today the sun is shining 
no wind!
(I continue to be touched for good!)

"I cannot promise an end to your adversity in this life.  I cannot assure you that your trials will seem to you to be only for a moment.  One of the characteristics of trials in life is that they seem to make clocks slow down and then appear almost to stop.  There are reasons for that.  Knowing those reasons may not give much comfort, but it can give you a feeling of patience!"
