For awhile there, I seemed to have little faith. Russell would tell me get with the program which to me means get on the right path and have faith that things will work out. And things always have worked out. My faith is strong now. :)
We need to have faith in ourselves as well as in the Universal Power....whatever you may choose to call it. Sure there will be times when our Faith is tested such as when things happen in our lives that we can't control or understand. That is how we become stronger. When we look to blame God or other people for things that happen in our lives we are not learning anything from what we consider bad situations in our lives. I find it odd when people blame God for things. Not that long ago we had those really bad fires in Oklahoma and I saw on the news this interview with a man who was saying.....Why did God do this? Does he really think that God started those fires? Or people say.....Why did God let her/her get that illness? The God I know is loving and good and does not hurt anyone or anything. How could anyone have faith in a God like that? Things happen, we get through it and we learn. Maybe we learn to have more compassion, to be more patient and understanding or to have more faith. I'd like to think so. This is what having faith means to me. What does it mean to you?
Daily HappeningsNot much going on here today. I worked in the yard a bit since the sun is out. As I was sitting here writing about faith, the tornado siren started going off. They were probably just testing it since it's bright and sunny but it went off for a long time and made me kind of nervous. But it's stopped now. Anyhow back to what I was saying....I think I need to expand my garden! I'm doing it along the side of one fence with concrete blocks on one side to hold the dirt in. The bricks were just in a pile along the side of the house and didn't cost anything. I'm trying to spend as little money as possible. I still have some more blocks so I'm going to make it a bit longer so I can plant more. I'll put pics on here when I'm done.
Comments from previous postJane: Thank you. On some of those meme's I was just being silly. My lifelong dreams was never to be a sewage plant worker or garbage truck driver!
Tori: I loved your list too! Working in the garden in the rain....sounds fun. :)
Intense Guy: behave yourself mister. ;)
