In the midst

I'm living on a yo-yo. I max out on S and he plays "nice" and then I ease up and then he stays up all night and flakes out on me and I max out...
He's twenty. He doesn't have a job and his girlfriend's step-dad kicked him out of their house so he can't go back.
We're stuck with him.
How do I get him out of our home?
I don't know what God wants us to do but I know that God is with me in the midst of all this stress, frustration and grief.

sister act

It's official: I have NO babies or even kids anymore. The youngest turned fourteen and for her birthday, she asked to have her hair colored auburn. Being the with it mom that I am, I said yes. So today she got a new do and her big sis took her shopping and out to dinner, just the two of them. Dad and I went to Lowes for a faucet and picked up take-out Thai for dinner. Whooohooo!

I'm always amazed that God shows up. It's maddening, really, to have lived as long as I have as a christian and still have elementary school faith.

I can't take anymore...
Probably I can.
Most likely, I have to.

But the end of all things is at hand; therefore be serious and watchful in your prayers. And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."1 Peter 4: 7-8

The house is quiet; kids are still sleeping and hubby's gone to the office. It's a grey day outside, but I feel motivated and excited by the prospect of a fresh start. Holidays and birthdays are just days like any other but recognizing them makes a break in the steady, relentless march of time. It feels like a new opportunity.
Here is one opportunity I'm going to take; Beth Moore is having a scripture memorization challenge on the LPM blog. I'm going to give it a go. My memory's not so good but at the very least, I'll have a stack of relevant scriptures to go to.
Be very careful, then, how you live-not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is. Eph. 5:15-17
