hot here.  tomorrow is supposed to be 100 degrees F.  what will august be like?  and in the heat i have to run the pressure canner for chicken broth that is gorgeous looking!!  it will be worth it this winter when we need broth for soup and rice and noodles.
lately …. i am dealing with trying to understand Jesus’ reaction to two things in my life.  the first is my mother.  her marriage to a man that was a homeless, unemployed alcoholic about 15 years younger than her.  she has completely changed.  she has nothing to do with us.  it is so disturbing.
the second is what i thought to be a good friend, a sister in Christ.  i helped her through a horrible divorce, got into a counselor, and got her to get her GED.  she choose to have an affair with a married man.  we know the couple and it is horrible.  i do not understand how she could make this choice?  why after what i know of her past would she do this?
and i do not know how to react to either of these situations.  what do i say to my mother if i ever see her? and what of my friend?  i just don’t know what to do.
why does life have to be this hard? what is it i am to learn in this? where does love fit in? if i am to be like Christ…… i need Him to tell me what to do……
