The Strength of a Thread

I don’t care who you are - if you become bold and daring enough to take on a Basset Hound puppy - you can’t help having a moment like - this!



Look, Mama! I can fly !


 

I can see Bill Cosby doing this.




I see Jim Carrey doing this.




I see Dick Cheney - doing this.

 


I see Mr. “ T “ encouraging this.

 


Whatchyoo’ think yo’ doin’ - Fool ! “

 


Mama - they’re bein’ mean to me ! “




C’mon, Carlie! Get up ‘n fight like a Girl ! “




But - Mama. “

Quite some time ago - just before I moved from Texas to Tennessee - I learned something very valuable.

I learned there are times in our life when God will remove us from situations - for protection. And some of those events can be extremely - painful - despite our own personal understanding about the seriousness of such a necessity.

There comes a time in every event we find ourselves centered within - when the mother in every mother is supposed to let go - and just - give it to God.  Knowing our hearts as much as He does - we can rely on Him to take charge when the need is sufficient enough - even if it means He has to remove us from the scenario - literally.

And it will come in the strangest ways.  But just holding onto faith in Him - like it were some kind of security blanket - while sitting back to wait - be still - and know that He is God - the outcome is always much more brighter - creative - and inspiring.

Nothing like we'd even imagine.  But - so much more than it ever will be - if we insist on fighting to stay in the middle of all the mess.

I can’t be sure what would be going on with me at this time - were it not for this little 22 lbs. of chaos ( as of yesterday ) entering our home and our family.

But I am sure of my faith - in God.  And right now - I'm dumping all my trust in Him.  Almost thirty years of my life depends on that.  Because right now - almost thirty years of my life feels like it was all for nothing.  Anything positive or right that I ever did - was never enough.

If only I'd met my husband back in 1980.

Teresa.....After reading "between" your lines, I know exactly what you are going through. Nothing you do will ever be enough & nothing you say is heard. You must distance yourself & fight through that feeling of loss, knowing that you are doing this for your own sake. And I know that without a strong faith, it is impossible. I, myself, need the ... See Morepeace that this decision brought me, I can no longer take the stress of these situations. I have had to take myself out of the life of some people for my own well being, yet I love them none the less. The adage " Let Go and Let God" is so true at this point. You are an amazing, strong, woman..... it's gonna be OK. ♥
