It's Morning...Again

It's morning again, and it's been a tough one again. Not in the same way as last week, but still, tough. And I'd like to add that--despite an excellent night's sleep--the decaf coffee isn't cutting it. :-)

But more than that, my heart is just burdened due to the interactions I've had already today, some my responsibility, some I just bear the brunt of.

I keep thinking that God's mercies are new every morning...and I am grateful, for without this, we would be 'consumed.' But today...so far...I just want to go back to bed and wake up to a new morning and ever new mercies. :-} Or maybe eat a ton of chocolate. Don't worry, I'm not going to...but it is very tempting. (And thus I've revealed my great coping skills... (-: )

No great revelations here. Just real life. But real life in Jesus, and that's do-able...
Just one moment at a time,

I sometimes wonder whether working among Christians is more difficult because Satan loves to stir up animosity among the brethren or just simply because they're such jerks. (Discuss...)

Chocolate and Jesus...such good cures. Just a piece of chocolate and a whole lot of the Lord
