SO far this week I've encountered dry rot in the house I just purchased, broken water pipes, broken pipes in the living quarters horse trailer that I have a friend needing to stay in that has moved here from out of town.  Packing EVERYTHING and moving it out of the house.  Letting go of three babies (cattle) never easy for me and continued back lashings of "proof" of my issues?  YUP, I have many I'm human.  Cried my eyes out over a dear friends dog that passed away today. GOOD NEWS - I have goats.....I have nothing to prove here folks.. ITS just me.. THIS is who I am.. WHAT I do... Nope I do not have a 9-5 job.. I have a 24/7 job.  We all work hard, we all have obligations.. Nope, I'm not perfect... have never claimed to be.. Nope my walk with Christ is NOT even close to where I want and need it to be but I'm proud of how far I've come.  I am simply doing the BEST that I can.  NOPE I cannot "prove" right and wrong I can only chose to allow right into my life and dismiss wrong. This includes several "friends" along the way that have chosen to lie, steal and devour my patience and kindness.Psalm 89:30-33
30 “If his sons forsake my law
    and do not follow my statutes,
31 if they violate my decrees
    and fail to keep my commands,
32 I will punish their sin with the rod,
    their iniquity with flogging;
33 but I will not take my love from him,
 nor will I ever betray my faithfulness.   
THERE is such a thing as self preservation..  I have a giving heart, a trust.. Thats me..  WHEN you have a complete melt down over broken pipes in a horse trailer you know its time to let go let God.... AND a vacation would not hurt right?!.. I had slated off a couple weeks mid June.FOR a wedding that is no longer taking place in June.. I think it is time for that vacation.  Where am I going with this....? Not really sure.. Maybe just venting a little after once again being "the victim".. BUT I'm really not.. YOU are a victim only if you allow it.  Proverbs 3:5-6New International Version (NIV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight

That is the way to end your post! Proverbs 3:5-6 is truly the answer~!
No, dear friend, you are not a victim, and I am so very proud of you! A vacation is definitely in order. You continue to be in my prayers.

It seems like this week didn't go smooth as you wanted it to be, but still there are things you have done right. You may have cried hundred times, but you have stood up thousand times, and for that you should be proud of yourself! Life in a ranch is truly a stressful one, that's why you have to be prepared on all possible things that might happen, right?
