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.

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.
