plain tired.

I'm tired. Exhausted. Weeping tears tired. Yes I didn't sleep well last night, (thank you teenage boys who don't sleep, at night anyway) but it's more than that.

I'm tired of worrying. About what? Our son. The relationships that he seems so intent on ruining: with me, his father, his siblings. Are we really that bad?!

Worrying about money. Why is there always more month at the end of the check?

Worrying about my health. Worrying others about my health.

Worrying about my folks, my kids, my grandson.

Do we ever stop worrying?

Matthew 6:25-27 -"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable then they? Who of you by worrying can add a signle hour to his life?"

Lord, take away my worry.

All new to me!

So here I am staring at a blank screen. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with this! All I know is that it is something that I want to do. I'm not sure that I have any wisdom to impart on anybody reading this, but hope that I can contribute at least one thing for somebody to think about.

I have been catching up with old friends lately through Facebook. At first I thought this Facebook stuff was pretty stupid, but I have come to really like it! I have found many good friends from my childhood, highschool, and college days. I have new friends from church and older family members. It's funny how this new way of communicating has brought us all together. I found friends who have lost parents whom I remember as Mr. So and so. That makes me sad. Friends who are the same age as me and have grandchildren who are already in school, friends who have married and divorced, and friends who I thought I would never see or even think about again.

I liked having many friends when I was younger, and as I married and had the kids, those old relationships slipped away. I'm so glad that I have found them again.
