Stop the Madness and Pass the Green Beans!

Stop the madness! 

Do you ever feel like you want to shout this from every street corner or closest mountaintop?  

I have felt this way.  In fact, I still feel this way.

I know…all will be well.  God is good.  All the time.  And I truly believe that.  Even in the midst of all the craziness called life.

But sometimes I just want to scream.

I am a crazy woman, as this picture would indicate.  I played “farm girl” yesterday at my Uncle’s house and picked some produce from his gardens.  The green beans are still cooking in the crock pot.

Yep…. crazy woman alright!

Life is not perfect.  I have circumstances to deal with like everyone else.  Someone actually indicated to me the other day that my life was perfect and I had it “altogether.”

Untrue.

I don’t have it altogether.  I worry.  I cry.  I yell.  I sometimes say inappropriate things.

Then when I am picking green beans off the vine the Father reminds me that He is the vine, and  I am the branch.  And that I am in Him and He is in me.  

John 15:1-8

And that I don’t have to have it altogether because He already does.

And that I cannot do this alone, on my own.  Jesus Christ is the only thing I can ever depend on.  Alcohol, drugs, friendships, jobs, money, roles, careers…none of these things will hold me up.  

I will only get through life with my Jesus. He is my vine. And I don’t do this alone.

How about you?

Be Encouraged Today~

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 58 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 42 years, married 38 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in August!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
