The Good and the Bad

I hope everyone has a great holiday! I did. I plan to live even if I don’t have a lot of money. So the lady that I live with and I got on the trolley that goes down Florida’s west coast beaches and took our lunch and had a nice day. We had dinner at the Bubba Bump Shrimp restaurant (yes, based on the movie Forest Gump) and topped our evening off with a run to Cold Stone Ice cream Parlor (I had no sugar-added vanilla ice cream). No, the trip did not surround eating. We enjoyed the beautiful beaches too! lol It was a good day.

Sadly, it did not start good. I woke up to see a call from my baby brother at 7:34 am and I knew something was wrong. I knew he was not calling me to wish me a happy Memorial Day that early. Sadly, he called to share the sad news that his wife had a stroke. My heart sank! She is in stable condition and God has spared her life. Thank God! Please pray for her. We share the same name. Her name is Sheila.

Life is filled with the good and the bad and even though I had a good time, my mind and prayers were always drifting back to my sister-in-law. That’s life. Always the good and the bad.

New International Version (NIV)

11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
