Chin Up, Buttercup

So… The. Unexpected. Happens.

After my earlier post this week, I dare not sit in my pity puddle. I am convicted by my stance on whining.

And may I say that I hate it when that happens.

What do I do?

My “younger me” flailed, pouted,  and dare I even say, whined. Shocker.

My circumstances defined my moments. I hate to admit that.

“Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.” Psalm 105:4
