We made it to Friday … Woo-hoo! And I just have to say, I love me some Friday. How about you? Sometimes the week flies right by. And other times it seems to go on and on.


I have to admit, normally when my week is dragging out, it’s because I’m putting off something I know I need to get done … And that “thing” is there when I go to bed and when I wake up the next day. Oh, I try to “tuck it away” or bury the thought. But it keeps creeping back in until I finally surrender and just get ‘er done!

I’m guessing this isn’t only my battle, and maybe you also have a “thing” that won’t leave you be? Why do we do this to ourselves?!

Wendy Pope shares with us, in Chapter 7 of #WaitAndSee, about three “Uninvited Troublemakers” that can get in our way if we’re not aware of their presence:

  • Depression
  • Discouragement
  • Doubt

And we also find out, in Chapter 7, these “peace stealers” can rob us of the ability to keep moving forward. They can even interrupt our relationship with God.

My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.

Please Comment. I don't care how long or how short. I want to hear from you.
