It’s All Up Hill From Here

It’s all up hill. At least that is how it feels sometimes! This heat is something, isn’t it?! It seems to be getting everyone down…making life a little more difficult….causing health problems….slowing us down. Life is hard enough as it is. And just when you think you are catching a break and things are getting better, something else comes to slam you back down to the bottom. And then you think, there is no place to go but up from here.

But that is life, isn’t it? A journey up? Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

This life is all about trouble and what we do with it. Will we become discouraged and then take it out on those around us? Or will we remember that Jesus loves us and knows our trouble. He is with us and will help us. When the bad days come…and they will come, God will bring us through.

So, keep plugging away at that hill….and keep your eyes on Jesus! 🙂

    Good Evening Janine–

    Well uphill is where I am now. I’ve been dealing with a BAD cough, nose, ear thing since last Friday. I was run down and still kept going bacause of Sam’s 10th Birthday last Sun. We had his school friends over after school, then I met up with the girls from work at a co-workers house for food, fun and games–well I overdid it with the food–I ate gluteous pizza, brownies etc, and found myself way off the healthy scale the following day–and still am fighting to get my health back. Well Jesus was right–I did have my struggles with the decisions to eat what I did –His grace is sufficient to carry me through and OUT of this mess. Prayers are appreciated. I’m working toward a business goal for the 19th of May. I’m having a combo show of my Norwex microfiber cloths and my boss will be bringing her Gold Canyon Candles. You are most welcome to please stop by and check it out. It will be at my home, at 2PM, that Sat after Mother’s Day. Pass the info along to whomever–I’l love to see my old table friends. I hear the meeting seems to be at McDonald’s now–still on thurs. AM’s. I love your work Janine–God has his stamp of approval all over your pieces–I’m still interested in a lapis, and pearl bracelet–call me–301-370-3720–xoxox–Jane

      So nice to hear from you, Jane! I hope you are feeling well soon. It is hard to eat only what our bodies can handle when there are so many yummy things out there. I hope your show goes well. Miss you! -Janine
