As I was leaving to go to my weekly women’s bible study I saw my neighbor and stopped to chat a bit. She knows the trials my family and I are currently facing.
She stood silently for a moment trying to figure out what I had just said. Words that were SO out of the norm for me. I started cracking up at the look on her face. I of course didn’t mean it. About that time she finally got my tongue in cheek reply about praying for strength and started cracking up too, knowing I was just blowing off some well deserved steam. As we clutched our sides she said, “Well, maybe it’s not the best idea that you should go today.”
During the drive over I prepared myself that this latest admission about our life would inevitably lead someone in the bible study to bust out the biggie:
“ I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” ~ Philippians 4:13
