bits of discouragement in a soup of blessings

you know how if you are eating a yummy soup ( or chili)
and then you bite into something that should not be there?
like a finger, or a foreign object.
no matter how good the soup was
its ruined by the intrusion
into your expectations of delightful dining.

My world is like that today.
very good things happening ( you can read them below)
and yet a snag or two, and I am dragged down
from my high point to a spot under a rock, in the shade of a tree,
under a big cloud.

I am sad, and confused
and normally I would not talk about it.
There it is
Nothing big, or that can not be fixed.
time will sort it out, and God is good to me.
much more of His goodness that I deserve.

Praying for you.

This isn't whining, btw.

lets just pray your finger in the chili turns into a free frosty instead of jail time. I'm praying for you too, David.
