Party of one(her)

Ever feel like life has gotten the best of you? One thing after another… and then another. We had a less than perfect weekend and the fun just keeps coming. I had to drive (him) to work this morning because there is something wrong with the truck. Then, not only did I get lost on my way home from play group, but I got a one hundred and twenty seven dollar ticket for my expired tags and a warning for a tail light that is apparently out. Darn my late birthday. The holidays flew by and I never gave a thought to my tags. The papers must have been mailed to our old address because I didn’t get them and that is how I am usually reminded that it’s time to pay for new ones. I want to have a pity party right now and write about all the crappy situations in life, but I think I’ll tell you about a sermon I heard yesterday instead.

I was at a church in Dubuque with friends (and if you are in Dubuque, you should check out New Life Church). The pastor was talking about life and how to make it count. He asked everyone to think about our routines and our priorities. He said that “it is by our choice that we are where we are in life, and it will be by our choice that we change”. He said that sometimes in life, “we need to let go of good things in order to allow room for the best thing”. He asked us what it will take to turn things around, to stop wanting to do better but to set fourth a plan and see it through. He talked about narrowing our vision to be focused on God. And by that last one alone… I’m willing to bet that this party of pity will end.
