I've back tracked!

It's been a week since my last blog and as many of you could guess I have let things slide. In my defence my family has been going through some tough times and it's been very stressful. I'm lucky if I remember to eat here lately much less count calories. I've tried to manage by eating things that I have in the past on this diet. I've been so busy it's unbelievable.
I did start a new job. :) I don't know how it's gonna work out but I'm optimistic about it. I'm going to try my best to make it work. The basics of the job is this...well, it's kinda hard to explain. The company I work for is a pharmaceutical company that specializes in all natural products for the home. Such as laundry detergent, shampoo, and vitamins. It's a good product that has won environmental awards and the company is Better Business Bureau certified. Not bad! My job is letting people know it's there! So go to my web site and check it out. If you are interested and want more information let me know and I'll set up a on-line information session for you. There is so much to explain it's better left to the company it's just my job to get you there.
Enough of business...With all the complications that life has thrown at me somehow I'm still going. There have been times this week when I knew a "break down" was just one heart beat away. My sister and I had a long conversation this week on the phone about all of life's drama and troubles. She said something that most of you have already heard and it's something I know I've said to others. And that is "God will never put anything on you he knows you can't handle." The more I think about it I kinda disagree. Isn't it God's job to challenge us to show us how strong we can be? To perhaps bring us back to him by a situation we can't handle? I don't know it just makes me think. I'm not wavering on my faith, I know that the problems we are faced with now we will be able to overcome them. We have wonderful family and friends that will support us. We have a good church that the boys will find good friends at and that's as much of a blessing as we can ask for now.

My son has a Veggie Tales Bible and we found this verse. Keep in mind it is translated for a child but the meaning remains the same.
Romans 5:3-6
Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.
