I know everyone deals with struggles.
I have mine.
You have yours.
I don't plan to do a confessional of my struggles here....I just plan on being real.
That is my new goal in life.
Being real..... Not having struggles.
(Just wanted to clear that up.)
You know when you go somewhere and people ask, "How are you?"
Normally, we reply, "I'm fine." or "I'm great" or "I'm doing good."
Well, there are times when we lie to people.
We are not always fine, or great or even good.
There are times when we are struggling to stand, to breath, to live.
But most do not want to hear this. Most want to hear that we are fine.
Now, I will be the first to tell you that I do not want to hear about every ache and pain in places we have no business discussing, and sometimes we have so short a time together that I want to hear your happy news, but in all honesty, I just want to talk to you. I want to be your friend. I want to pray for your specific needs. And if you need to vent, I'm fine with that.
Sometimes, I need to vent.
Sometimes, I need you to understand what I am not saying.
Sometimes, I need you to pray for me.
Life is hard.
Life is unexpected journeys, mountains and valleys, long walks, and short sprints.
Life is richer for having friends and family.
Life is richer for being real with each other.
Life is better when we pray for each other.
(This blog turned out totally different than I expected. Life is funny like that!!)
