Oh my knees are really hurting.

REALLY hurting.


As I was driving home from a friend's house with Jake this afternoon, I was listening to my contemporary christian radio station, and I heard "Bring the Rain" by MercyMe.

For those of you who don't know it, don't worry about it.

But it made me realize, that my entire life has been a battle.

Actually a series of battles.

I think I have one beaten, and then there is another one for me to fight.

A child of divorce.

A child of an alcoholic father I never knew, who died before I could connect.

A child of sexual abuse.

A child of rape.

And then an adult with an alcoholic husband.

And then an adult of divorce.

And then Crohn's Disease.

I have won every battle.

I am still fighting the last one.

But amazingly, I am still, and always be, a child of God.

He has brought the joy

and He has brought the glory,

and Lord Jesus

He is bringing the rain.

  1. you are a fighter woman. You will win the battle, I just know it. Queens are good like that. We tend to know it all. Or think we do anyway.
