The SPLAT factor...

I just wanted to reflect on some verses that have meant so much to me over the last week or so. I have struggled in so many ways recently - my life "a never ending roller coaster". Why oh why am I not more stable, why can't I be one of these people who just breeze through things without ever really feeling the changes. Of course I know the answer to this question.
I am who God made me to be. I feel these things because I am meant to. If I didn't feel things as solidly as I do, I wonder if God would be able to do anything with me.
Anyway, Psalm 139 and Jeremiah 29:11,12 help to make a bit of sense of my life.
It makes it so real to me that God knew me before I was born and that He has a plan for my life which will continue to unfold for a long as I live. There is so much hope wrapped up in those verses. Hope which I will hang on to, even when I feel like I've stepped over the precipice and am destined to go SPLAT at the bottom.

I'll check out those verse Helen.

Do NOT feel alone in regards to life being uncontrollable. If we are neat and careful and controlled, would there be room to feel and be passionate and particularly for you, lovely Helen, could you laugh as hard as you do if the falling wasn't quite so hard?

The rollercoaster sucks sometimes but I feel that its all a little sweeter when reach those wonderful, dizzying, breath taking heights.

The ones that make you cry because it feels so damn great.

Delete me if I make no sense, but the sentiment is that I'm thinking of you :)

I love your reference to Psalm 139

"I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well."

This means dear Helen that you indeed... are marvelous!

Hope you have a great week. Remember to call me if you need to chat.

Love you my sister. :) *Almost* called you today, before Saraya removed William's pooey nappy on the trampoline "to help me"- well, poo was everywhere and there went my phone call to you. :) No going splat, please! Love those verses. And you. xo
