Just Ramblings

Wow! I just realized I haven't updated since Thursday! Unreal!!
Truthfully, I'm in a bit of a funk. I threw my back out last Tuesday(not hard to do at my age)and it just makes life a little tougher to enjoy!

This was a week of whiners at work. We go through those stages when it seems everyone just complains....customers, co-workers, and even the UPS men! Ugh!

I guess I could contribute alot of it to the fact that we're studying a new book in my Celebrate Recovery class called "Boundries".


I'm really learning so much from this book. I've learned that it IS ok to say no sometimes, and I really don't have to be the peacemaker all of the time! I'm NOT responsible for the fight a co-worker had with his girlfriend over the weekend,and I don't have to tolerate his bad mood because of it!

We were told when we started this study to expect some flack from the people closest to us. People don't like it much when change happens, and they can't control it.
I'm telling you, there is FREEDOM in this book! If you haven't read it, I'd highly reccomend it. It makes a great small group discussion.

Speaking of....Chuck and I are joining a new small group on Wednesday evenings at church based on the movie "Fireproof" ! I'm sooooo excited about this one. I guess the best part is the fact that HE actually suggested we join!

Wow, my funk is lifting just blogging about this stuff! Guess it's another "Blessing" for me to count!

Our church did something similar with Fireproof. We regretted not being able to participate. I hope you have a great time and get a lot out of it. We saw the movie for the first time last night and loved it. :)
