Where Did That Come From?

Sometimes things happen in life and I wonder why do I feel that way? The craziness with Tom’s tooth and the car trouble made me wonder why the dumb car annoyed me. I thought I was worried about the car breaking down while I was driving and getting into an accident. Tom pointed out that was not what was bothering me. He thought I was more concerned about get stuck on the side of the road. It got me to ponder if he was right.

I remembered a time when I was really young (maybe 7 or 8) and my parents took me on a pilgrimage. We traveled on a chartered bus. There were many chartered buses from different parts of the country. We were getting ready to leave when I noticed an old lady crying because she had missed her bus. My heart was broken for her. I got very upset thinking she didn’t have a way home. In fact, I was hysterical. My dad had to make sure she had a way home and got help for her before I would stop crying. I remember leaving on the bus and looking back at her to make sure she was okay.

It was an eye opening for me. I plan to have some friends pray with me for healing of this unfounded fear. It feels good for me to discover that about me so I can do something about it. I don't want things hindering me in life. I feel lighter already.

I’ll be absent from blogland for the rest of the week. I’ll be busy and will tell you all about it next week. Have a wonderful weekend.

Prayers for you and Tom. You have a lot on your plate Nadine. Introspection is VERY good but be kind to yourself.

And God is just so GOOD.

Be blessed.

I think that fear of being the lady on the side of the road is a common one. Many hugs and prayers.

I marvel at how God so tenderly reveals all that we must come to Him for. Healing in the face of a childhood fear. I think it's amazing that you have discovered this in your life.
