Sometimes bad things happen to us. That’s usually when we ask, “Why, Lord?” But I wonder, do we have the right to ask that in the bad times if we’ve never asked it during the good times?
The Joy Lady: What should we do when we get annoyed with every day events?
I confess. Sometimes I get pretty annoyed with other people. Especially when they don’t do things just as I would have them done.
