.....

LORD just keep me!

is what i keep saying to myself...

i can't believe the call i got Saturday morning...my mother actually said to me "only a miracle from GOD baby" that's what she said...my uncle lays on life support in intensive care in Chicago...

my mother is gone to take my grandmother to see him, not an easy feet being that she had to fly to Alabama and now has to drive her to Chicago...

my father is home "alone" (my brother will be checking on him) until my mother returns...

she packed her Black suit, "just in case"

its so unbelievable how things work themselves sometimes...how life turns out sometimes

i couldn't hold the phone when she said those words, i immediately hung up the phone, and called him, he was there, he was right there despite the fact that he was told that he has to leave on the 28th, well now TOMORROW...but you were there and i appreciate that...my friend...

life sometimes comes at you, and its coming at me...on ALL levels, but i just said we CHOSE how we feel, we MAKE our own happiness, sometimes circumstances surround you that can hinder that...but even in the midst of it all, we chose to keep pressing forward

so i will remain faithful and i know that GOD makes NO mistakes...

and even though things are totally all up in the air (it amazing how ONE thing, ONE night, ONE moment can change it all)

but for now imma take a moment, and just sit and watch and sit and pray and sit and meditate on the power of our LORD...

"pain may endure for one night, but joy comes early in the morning"

remain faithful people....

Peace

I'm keeping you in my prayers..email me if you need ANYTHING at all...

I was saying this to my best friend when we were talking about her mother...life comes at you from every angle when you least expect and you can choose to crumble under the pressure or come out stronger because of it..God has a purpose for it all....Stay strong sis..then again that's who you are :)

Sorry about your uncle. Like you said God doesn't make mistakes. He will never put more on you than you can bear.

Prayers with you and your family.
