    I'm sure you've heard the old saying god don't give you nothing you can't handle. Well no where has it ever been said how on how we are suppose to handle things so if we all wind up in the looney bin with those padded walls all I can say is we have handled everything that was given to us. lol. I know it's not inspirational but hopefully it brought even a little smile to you. Sounds like you could use a smile or two. Hope things get better for you.

    “Do not fear, for I am with you; do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Isaiah 41:10

    When adverse winds and waves arise,
    And in my heart despondence sighs,
    When life her throng of care reveals,
    And weakness o'er my spirit steals,
    Greatful I hear the kind decree,
    That "as my day my strength shall be."

    When, with sad footsteps, memory roves
    'Mid smitten joys, and buried loves,
    When sleep my tearful pillow flies,
    And dewy morning drinks my sighs,
    Still to thy promise, Lord, I flee,
    That "as my day my strength shall be."

    One trial more must yet be past;
    One pang, the keenest and the last;
    And when, with brow convulsed and pale,
    My feeble quivering heart-strings fail,
    Redeemer, grant my soul to see,
    That, "as her day her strength shall be."

    [Lydia H. Sigourney - March 5, 1836]

    In whatever we do, let us give glory to God and find our strength in Him. "...whoever serves, as by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ..." 1 Peter 4:11

    Warm prayers and wishes, Jeannette
