Don't Harsh My Mellow



You know how there are just some days that challenge you and leave you feeling completely beat up?  I have had one of those days.  Maybe my sensitivty is heightened because I've been separated from my family for three weeks.  Maybe my exhaustion is compounded by not only the mental scholastic labor I've been doing but the tremendous spiritual work I've been tending to.  Maybe...maybe today...as my friend says...I was the bug and someone else, something else, was the windshield.

I can't go into today's drama much because of confidentiality and frankly political reasons, but, I'm just feeling a little crossed eyed.  I wonder why it seems so difficult sometimes for people to do the right thing, to extend a hand of compassion and understanding, to give grace and not 'hateful face'.  Really, why can't we all just get along?

A little understanding, a generous dash of compassion and a heap of faith can make an enormous difference in the demeanor of the world. In other words...don't harsh my mellow!


While others are making lemonade out of lemons, I'm gonna take my "harshed mellow" and make smores!!!!

Ecclesiastes 3

When trying times come, remember there is a purpose under heaven for everything.

Still, stand in grace and know that He will never leave you nor forsake you.

Praying that today, you feel His comfort through others.
