Only This:

*within the walls of this house is the only place on earth that I am in control. I can worry sick over my children. I can fix the problems that go on within my own home. I can discuss solutions with my husband that will make our lives easier. But I cannot do more than that. If the walls of our house come caving in then I can be the one to jump in the middle of it and fight. If the walls begin to cave in for someone else, then all I can do is offer a prayer.

And that the ONLY thing I can do. I have to recognize that God is in control; otherwise our world would spiral out of control. (and that is just something I am not willing to be held accountable for)


  1. Amen. It's something we all have to remember. We only have control over ourselves. We have to leave the rest in God's hands.

  2. I love you too. I hope that everything is okay. I'm here if you need to talk.

  3. One day I hope to have this bit of wisdom sink the freak in.

    You're smart.
    And pretty.
    And you smell like flowers.


  4. SO this means I just have to move into you house and make you fix all my problems. As long as you hubby does all the cooking and I get to try on all your bras, we have a deal!

  5. This is a hard lesson to learn. I've had to relearn it more times than I can count. Take care.

  6. Cracking.up.laughing at rocketgirl.

    Seems like you are feeling guilty that you can't help someone else's problems. I am sorry whatever the situation is.

    We shall all move in to the walls of your house so you can help us with our problems. :)

  7. Mmmmm, well, not real sure about all this, should I stop getting involved in other's lives?? I don't think I'd like the drop in pay. No I'll stay involved and you can too, just remember you can only offer the help you have to give and the suggestions that come to you, after that the responsibility is in their court. It is their job to live their lives, good or bad. EVERY ONE HAS THEIR AGENCY, EVEN IDIOTS.
    *stepping off my soapbox

  8. OOOOO! I want to move in too. Can you handle this issue I have with OVERBOOKING MYSELF? Hmm... what about my work out issues!!! Oh, Rae. I miss you! I want you to live down the street again. OK! Ok. GOOD! Glad that's settled!

    I love you.


Oh come on-- the least you can do is say HELLO!! You didn't come all this way to turn around and walk away, did you? DID YOU??
