I have to say that these last 3 yrs have been very long. Maybe not the longest I have experienced as I never thought I would get through those years before my retirement. I literally counted the months, weeks, days; even the minutes. But I fear that these next 12 months will be just as long; however, there is one difference in this scenario – the build up of frustration and anger instead of relief that a goal will be met. It will be like living on the edge every minute of your life.
While we all strive to stay informed – I think we have mastered the technique to pull back and recoup and bring some laughter in our lives. I am encouraging everyone to do that while we can these next few months, because the time is coming when the suspense of what is taking place daily will be so immense. I for one hate waiting and have no patience. Patience is one thing I pray for each day; but alas, it always seems to evade my being.
So as we begin the holiday seasons, take time to cherish the things you love and the ones you love and gird yourself with the things that will make you strong. NO – not the xanax or prozac, the wine or liquor bottle but this:
Ephesians 6: 11 – Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
IT’S ALL IN THE EYES:
The only one you might not know is the one in the middle
