junk day!

I love junk day! Once a year, our community allows us to bring all our junk to the recycling center wherer they have several garbage trucks there to haul away our junk. Today is/was junk day and I am happy to report that there is no more junk in my trunk, it's in a truck now!

We had our prayer group this morning, wonderful. We're listening to a book on CD "The Lamb of God" by Scott Hahn. Today we listened to his discussion on the Book of Revelation. Wow, fascinating to say the least... I also did alittle better at sharing ym petitions to our Lord with the group. We close each meeting with our petitions to God/JC/HS, sharing them out loud. It's a little uncomfortable, but I am getting used to it, and it's really an awesome exercise!

There's a definite chill around the house today... I guess I shouldn't have begun that "discussion" (see last nite's post below) with my wife last nite. I need to resign myself to just worry about me and my emotional/spiritual health. Trying to share how I feel with my wife and offering to help only upsets her more and makes things worse. Man, marriage is frickin' difficult, especially by yourself.

Prayer for today...

God/HP/JC, help me share Your message this morning at the jail mtg. Please help to stay sober through helping others. I pray that I might make a fun day for Ian and me as we shop for my 2nd (hopefully not last) wedding anniversary and Mother's Day). I pray that I just keep the focus on me, that I might not let those around me ruin my peace, serenity and positive attitude/energy. I pray for Your blessings for the fellow in town here who is fighting an awful Leukemia. Thank You for Junk Day and the other blessings in my life!

peace be with you all...

Okay, here is some unsolicited advice - probably worth what you paid for it... but do you ever just get pissed off? You are living in what sounds like a difficult situation - but you always try to paint a pretty picture. Do you ever just say "f*** it, I am pissed off!" You are only human. Please take care of yourself.

Yesterday was our junk day too. Although, we had to run ours to the dump but, it was free. I am sorry that you and your wife are in a bad place. I am hopeful that it will get better.

Our "Junk day" really sucks. Coz everyone really just puts out junk. Or where you talking about it from a clearing out junk perspective? I don't chuck anything out. I'm one of those hoarders lol
Have you and your wife had counciling? Spoken to your minister about counciling within the church?
You have to do something. As Dr Phil would say, "Someone's gotta be the hero." :o)
