I have a special request for everyone. Here lately I have been on the emotional side. I am not sure why but I am sure that my kids and hubby are hoping that it will end soon. I am usually not the emotional kind of person, but in the last few days I have been hurt by stupid things. I cried pretty much all day yesterday, because some college age girls were walking by the apartment and I heard them say some pretty negative things about me. I didn't know them and I usually would have just rolled my eyes and not thought a minute more about it. Please pray that I can get my sate of mind back and if this is a learning experience from God, that I will learn the lesson quickly. Thanks for your prayers!

I just read your comment on my blog, & I'm praying for you too, my friend & sister. It's our lot in life to occasionally be over-the-top emotional, isn't it? I'd like to have a word or two with those thoughtless college girls! Know that there are those of us who love you & would hug you if the distance between us wasn't so great. Consider this a long-distance, virtual hug. Love you, girl!

Marie, I am so sorry that you're going through a rough time. Wish I could give you a big huge hug right now. I love you. I'll be praying.

Marie,
I know the depths of a woman's emotions can be so trying at times... I have had my fair share of moments like that recently. I hate for you that it is happening to you... and especially now with so much going on. But know that you are in my prayers, and know that you are a child of our amazing God... a princess of the King and that He will always be there to protect you from anything that comes your way... be it emotions... or ding bat college girls (who will look back and realize they didn't have a clue when they have 3 or 4 kids running around and are trying to do what's best for their family's!) You're doing a great job Marie! Know that we all love you!

I am sorry that you are having a rough time. Like most things, it shall pass. I will pray that you are able to find some strength in yourself and in God and allow you to overcome this obstacle. Wish you were near!

Marie, know you are a beautiful daughter of God. He alone can make you whole. In a hectic world with so much going on in your life right now its not surprising that you are emotional. Our emotions can distract us from the truth of God's love. I love you too! Anytime you need to call and chat...let me know!

It's funny that you wrote that b/c these last few days have been emotionally challenging for me too...and I'm still not sure I know why. But, it did give me a chance to spend some major prayer time with God in order to get through it. Maybe we just need to be broken down every once it a while so that we can give God a chance to build us up or speak to our hearts when they might not otherwise be receptive...Love you!

I have had one of those weeks too, a really bad one. Fragile. Easily set off. Taking things way too personally. But you know, I have realized this week that God uses my more emotional times to teach me sensitivity, emotional attunement, and tenderness when I'm usually "harder" when I am less emotional. I'm really thankful for that as I am learning more about being strong in my weakness. Whether that is part of the Lord's teaching process for you, I don't know. But its what is happening with me.
