Sometimes I just want to cry

posted by Cheryl Petersen

I don’t cry very often. Usually, I’m really tired and one thing after another piled up until I break down and cry.

But, the other day, everything was fine. Really fine. I was out on a walk. The snow fall was lovely. I’d gotten my work done. And, I saw my husband drive up. He’d received a phone call and we were told news that shocked us.

I broke down and cried.

I was crying with God. I even got upset with God.

Although my brain was discombobulated, I didn’t doubt God’s presence. But, I was sure expecting God to act fast and get me straightened around.

TearIt took a few hours. I calmed down. I put the brain noise on the back burner.

I wasn’t going to pray for the human situation to change back to normal. I just wanted to know what God would have me do.

Ideas started flowing, thankfully.

My husband read from the Bible to me and angels were talked about. I told myself to know that angels are everywhere, absolutely everywhere, helping, guiding, healing, and motivating all people and the earth.

We received another phone call and the situation that scared me had taken a turn for the better.

Sometimes I just want to cry.

And, I did cry tears of rejoicing and gratitude.

Hanging out with Christ
It’s a tough call. If I found myself sitting in a boat, in rough water, and then I saw Christ Jesus walking by on the water, I don’t know if I’d risk walking on the water to be with Christ. Would I sit in the boat? The safety of the boat is already precarious, bobbing and thrashing in st

Simultaneous contrast
Have you ever looked at paint samples? Those dinky squares of colors in paint stores? You decide on teal green and take a gallon home to paint a room. Once on the wall, you want to gag. Returning to the store and paint samples, you select another color with caution. Deciding on emerald green,

Not too much reliance on a machine
While driving near the outskirts of Washington D.C., I listened to and followed directions coming from the GPS sitting on the car dash. Stay to the left, stay to the left, stay to the left. Take the ramp in point 2 miles and continue of 95 north. Ramps are generally on the right so I missed th
