The days you don't want to get outta bed

I think I had one of those days yesterday. I found out the Magee's had a beautiful baby, this baby has been waited for, cried over, and prophetical been announced for as many years as I can remember. This day should have been so full of joy and happiness. But earlier that morning (1am-ish) I had read Kylie's status update of PRAY. Which I had already been feeling burdened about and I didn't know why. So I prayed, finished my book, waited for my sleep aid to kick in and prayed some more. Finally I feel into a restless sleep. I awoke around 10am knowing I had to harvest my farm. (I am so throughly addicted, it's sad) I seen Kylie had posted :Safe in the arms of jesus! Which made me want bawl my eyes out. I can't even imagine the grief or anything that they are going through right now.  They have gone through so many ups and downs. They had 5 precious months with him. It was a bittersweet day to hear of a new life and one that went on to a place of no more pain or tears.

So much is always happening around me, when I want to be come self absorbed in the little things that hurt me, it only takes something like this to remind me that there are people suffering to much greater degree, and also people celebrating greatly.

These are my verses of promise, they have carried me through some very hard times.

Revelation 21:3-7
3 I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, “Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them.[a] 4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”
 5 And the one sitting on the throne said, “Look, I am making everything new!” And then he said to me, “Write this down, for what I tell you is trustworthy and true.” 6 And he also said, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega—the Beginning and the End. To all who are thirsty I will give freely from the springs of the water of life. 7 All who are victorious will inherit all these blessings, and I will be their God, and they will be my children.

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He also has planted eternity in men's hearts and minds [a divinely implanted sense of a purpose working through the ages which nothing under the sun but God alone can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end.
