Buried

It has been a busy couple of weeks.  Especially since getting back from vacation.  Lots of mail and other things to sort through.  Too much to do and not enough time to do it.

Yesterday, I put together new bookshelves and moved them in the office.  I had to hurry home to clean up for our Light For The Lost Banquet last night, so I had no time to clean up my office yesterday.  When I came in this morning, it was a mess.  You couldn’t see the bottom of my desk.  It was buried with mail, junk, files, junk, books, and junk.

This afternoon, I cleaned house.  I sorted through everything and now, the once buried desk, is now clean.  What a feeling!

Life is often like a desk that is buried with stuff.  We try to make headway, but things continue to be piled on.  Before we know it we are buried under.  Pressures weigh us down.  Hardships surround us until we feel like we can’t make it anymore.  That is when Jesus comes along and begins to pull the stuff away.  He begins to lift the burdens and to help us see the light at the end of the tunnel.

When life gets too hard and you feel buried under, remember Jesus was once buried but now He is alive and well.

  1. Poor Hannah, you have probably brainwashed her
    to forget me. But you clean house the way I do so thats no help. But you could carry all the boxes from the living room and kitchen to the empty bedroom. Just think its been almost a year since I really cleaned house. But I can still find the cat.

  2. Judy,

    Actually Hannah has not forgotten you. We were shopping at Wal-Mart the other day (imagine that) anyways, Hannah spotted a lady and I guess she thought it was you. She screamed, “Mama there is JuJu!” I looked around and noticed a woman that had some resemblances but it was not you. I had to break her heart and tell her it was not you. She then said, “MaMa, I miss JuJu.” I told her I understand. So when you get ready for a trip let me know. We will be ready!
