The Little Engine that Couldn't!!!



You have a plan.  Getting everything together.  Check.  About to get started.  Check.  Now it's time to...wait a minute...something has happened.

No, not going to be able to finish today.  Maybe tomorrow.  No, how about the next day???...

Do you ever feel like you're spinning in circles because you can't seem to get anything done?

How does it make you feel?  Do you ever get angry?  Sad?  Frustrated?

Have you ever asked God why?

We all have seasons of feeling stuck don't we?  When it feels like nothing is getting accomplished. 

What about those projects that are on "stand-by"?  Seeing stacks of paper or boxes that aren't getting moved because your body is too exhausted to do it?

How do days like this feel?  Some days I've been lucky enough to be able to finish one basket of laundry or finish a sink of dishes.  Others, get more done.

But here's a thought...What is life about?  Is it only about what we can accomplish or is it more???

Life isn't about projects.  It's about people!

So what if you don't get the dishes done today.  The laundry can wait too if you can't do it.  If you only have a snippet of energy today use it wisely.  Converse with those you love.  Spend time with them.

The dishes can wait! :-)

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose"  (Romans 8:28 NIV)

Guess Who's Back!!!



A few years ago Open Roof Ministries closed its doors..It's time to open them again!

If you have been overcoming any medical challenges or if you are a caretaker for someone I would like to hear your story.

I'm opening up this place for anyone who has a story to share.  Everyone who deals with medical conditions is a warrior who deserves to be applauded!

It is very difficult day by day feeling physical pain.  It's like going in a boxing ring and the challenger is the disease.  The match is how you overcome it and not let it defeat you.

You might not be able to keep the same pace as everyone else, but you keep going.  That's the key!  Don't stop.  Every step you take, no matter how small it seems, is another one forward.  You're that much closer to your goal.

Does this sound like you?  Do you have a story to tell?

Please share them.  Everyone has a story!
