THE JOY LADY: ‘The words of my mouth, the meditation of my heart’

THE JOY LADY: Evidence of our faith is not evident when we know what to do
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.

I recently attended a memorial service at the nursing home where my stepfather spent the last years of his life. It wasn’t a big service, there were no bands or flags or special speaker brought in. Nor was it a service where people bowed their heads in silent prayer as the names of the loved ones were read.

The Joy Lady: Um, excuse me, that’s not your parking space
We just returned home from a much-needed trip to visit my husband’s family in western Nebraska. Aside from the snowfall on Mother’s Day, and the warning about staying on the paved sidewalks at Scotts Bluff National Monument due to awakening of the prolific rattlesnakes in the area, and all that sage brush blowing across the highway, it was a great trip. Except for the parking situation.
