Are You Kidding Me?!?!?!

X just called - my 5 year old son no longer has his 2 front teeth. Apparently when X wasn't watching them - AGAIN - my son tripped over my 10 year old and knocked out his teeth on a gravel driveway. They were loose, remember, because the last visit X wasn't watching them, the one before my daughter came home from X's with a yeast infection(!*&%$#@), my 5 year old bent his front teeth back when he hit the dresser. (They were healing up great.)

Please pray for Healing. Pray for Peace. For both of my sons, as my oldest thinks it's his fault. No baby, it's not.

Not sure if I have dental coverage since I'm in between jobs. They were baby teeth, Praise God... his adult teeth should come in in 2-3 years. Awesome. X was quick to remind me it could've happened on my watch. But it didn't. It never does.

I want them home RIGHT NOW. And I can't afford them to because I need a new job first. God, do you see this?

Oh, man, Carolynn, I'm really sorry. That really is awful. I'm glad he's OK, and I'm sorry your ex is such a tool. Keep hanging in there. I'll keep praying.

He sees it. Remember, events may catch us by surprise... but they NEVER surprise Him.

Praying for you, friend!

There are many times when it may feel like God is distant, like He is not watching or concerned with our troubles. This is absolutely not true.

It is so very hard to sort out the feelings when life tosses unexpected troubles your way. Trust me I now about life's troubles!

The best advice I can offer (unsolicited advice I know but hey I'm in cyber space here) is to stay on you knees in prayer every day, every minute if necessary, stay in the word (Psalms is wonderful during difficult times, so many of the psalms are cries of lament) and stay connected to the vine, reach out to other believers.

I will be praying that hedge of protection around your children and you as you travel down this difficult road.

Hugs to you lady.

I lost all four of my front teeth when I was six (I fell out of a tree-house) and it turned out ok so I'm sure your 5 year old will be fine too... I just wish he hadn't lost his teeth because X was being negligent...

I've got it! Come Halloween, your boy will be well prepared for the part of a toothless pirate!


Hang in there, my friend. Your kids will be back where they belong and by your side before you know it. Focus on the job. The sooner you find one, the sooner you can have them home.
