Today has had ups and downs. Kal had a basketball game this morning. His team lost but put up a good fight.
We've had nice family time, friend time (Kal had his buddy, Ben, over here), cleaning up time. Kara earned some money for her extra help today. She had a great attitude and helped without being asked.
I've had news from a friend who is hurting. That makes me hurt.
I've had times of joy with Kris today, including when he popped into the shop while I was there. We've laughed over inside jokes.
We had bacon for dinner. That's definitely a good part of the day.
Now I'm a puddle of tears over some thoughts going through my mind.
Up and down and sideways, the day can go all sorts of ways. Even if my emotions go everywhere, God is constant. He doesn't leave, doesn't change, doesn't go "pffft" at me when I'm praying to Him. He is the one constant in my life that gives me the stability and strength to carry on no matter what life brings.
The end of Hebrews 13:5 says, "I will never leave thee nor forsake thee."
