Hi temp 101 (me) Lo temp 30 (outside)

I'm sitting here at home and watching a Gaither's Homecoming tv special. I always looked at that as 'old people' music... I used to think I was too cool to listen to music that was geared toward the 'wrinkle ranch' crowd. But I realized those people can sing their butts off so I shut up in a hurry. It's not my favorite style of music, but for some reason when I'm feeling down, I watch the Gaithers and manage to feel a lot better and my weakened faith grows a bit stronger... I've not been feeling good the last couple of days, saddled with a cold and a sore throat... a lousy inconvenience for most, a serious pain in the rump since I've got to broadcast two hockey games this weekend online... ahhhh I love life sometimes. Ha! I was going to go out tonight, but I just didn't really feel like doing anything. I wasn't so sick that I couldn't do it. I just wanted to curl up on the sofa and mope. I was feeling tired and felt a pity party coming on. Instead of giving in, I flipped on TV and was too lazy to grab the remote and watched the Gaithers. It may have been the most boring night I've ever spent on this earth. And you know what? I enjoyed every minute of it... I felt like I perked up a bit and my spirit, sneeze-filled as it was, felt a sense of peace. The reason is because of the fact that when I feel lonely and hurt and deserted, that the biggest thing I should do is to minister to others. Not as a minister, but as someone who has endured and survived. So I guess that is what I'm meant to do... Be a friend...

Oh, Mik. (((Mik))) Cyberhug! My email is always open. Pity parties are no fun when you do them by yourself. If you need someone to hassle you about it, I'm up for it :)
After all, I'm the Queen of Pity Parties, trying desperately to ditch the crown...

Thanks Riccie,
I'm okay. Honest. I was starting to feel sorry for myself but that soon passed and now I'm feeling fine. Believe me, I'm not perfect, but I'm glad I've got such cool people willing to listen... Thank you for that my friend...

What a coincidence I actually watched The Issacs (bluegrass gospel) last night for pretty much the same reasons.

I'm glad you're feeling better :)

You two scare me Riccie and JXN... I'm discovering that we must share the same brain or something... good for me, downright frightening for the two of you... hahaha

Riccie said...

Jackson said...
