Pain and Healing

Filed under Faith

My friend the Random Yak injured his wrist.
This may not seem like much to some; however the Yak was having a darn hard time with it.( says the Yak: I’d pretty much tossed out the old cheerful Yak in favor of my new role as the Guardian of the Shoulder-Dwelling Black Dog.)

I, being immersed in my own self pity party inquired if the Yak was ok, and then didn’t respond further. I feel bad about that amongst other things.

My hubby, who I lovingly refer to as TheMasterOfTheUniverse has exhibited the patience of Job with me. I have struck out at friends who expected me to have a sense of humor and were hurt when I stuck back at them. He has defended me, mentioning morphine, bad dreams, and pain.
I have in short behaved badly.

Remember Job? He was the only one to have been found to be righteous in the eyes of God. After much testing and trials, sitting in the dirt, scratching at boils, Job’s loving wife came to him and said curse God and die.
She was pretty obviously over it. Job did not by the way.

The wonderful thing about being Christians is that we can go to our God, humble ourselves and name the sins. This is called confession.

God because he loves us is very clear about our standing with him.
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.

And thanks no, I’m not even going to share how pleasant it been.
But each day gets a bit better. And I am helped to focus by being blessed with friends
Like the Random Yak.

I was out deadheading roses yesterday, when I noticed that the evil kudzu
had popped up in the shade bed along with a big hill of freakin fire ants.

kudzu is the most annoying vine.
I mean it cant share space, it has to just take over..
I’m not having it I decided!


However keeping in mind that I had back surgery 6 weeks ago.. I knew pulling it was out of the question.. but at least I could cut it off, then later deal with the roots.
Kudzu roots resemble a really really big potato.

I got my handy garden cart, and my nippers and headed back to the shade bed.
Forgot my gloves!
Back to the shed for them,decided that I’d grab the big cutters also just in case, and headed back to the shade bed.

I was just fixin to start nipping the kudzu, when BlackJackTheBlackDog started his
Happy happier happiest dance..hmmmm

Looking over the gate was TheMasterOfTheUniverse.
He was not smiling, I started to studder something silly like.. well something silly.

We had a long discussion.. read it like this.. he lectured and I listened.
There will be kudzu destruction.
But not by me.

Open Trackback Tuesday!

Comment Spammers….

Filed under Life

There are few things that aggravate me more than spam..
Well maybe BlackJackTheBlackDog using the litter box as a cookie jar..
You get the idea..

So after discovering my web site had been hacked..
and over 95 spam/porn comments were left..
and I couldn’t find anyone to smack…

I have reverted back to haloscan..
