Several weeks ago I was thanking Him for little gnats. They are so tiny and so amazing. . . and I love ants. . .and bees. . . . and grasshoppers and crickets. . .and praying mantises. . . but I draw the line on the blood sucking critters. I can pray for the grace to love them too.. .but I'm so not there yet.
I picked up a case of lice just recently. So I've treated and treated and treated for the past three weeks. Washed everything in the house, sprayed. . . every single day. I finally called the doctor because these things are not going away. I used the prescription and maybe hopefully I will be DONE with them this week.
Just in time for bed bugs to make an appearance. . . .gah. . .really??! Well, I did travel a LOT last year. These things make sleep miserable. . so I cleaned and dusted with powder and sprayed. . .and what do they do. . . move to my recliner in the living room. They aren't bothering my hubby at all (chemo and radiation). But they are eating me and my dog Jess alive.
Then . . .nope, not finished yet . . . (beginning to feel like the Pharaoh, here.) there are three places where there are holes in the ceiling where raw wood is showing. The roof is fixed, so thankfully these places are at least not leaking any longer. . .but they have either gotten wood mites or chiggers in them, one. . .and of course, one of these holes (five feet by four feet) is over my downstairs desk where I work. ..and the other is in the foyer (three by four feet) where I fold clothes and the other is the complete laundry room roof where I wash and dry the clothes. . .
So I've been praying and asking what He's trying to show me. . .or should I just be patient for Him to use this for His glory? Or. . .could He PLEASE have mercy on me??!!
I'd like to say I just don't need this on top of everything else. . . but I know that isn't the way life works - and so I'm trying to keep a good attitude about it.
I'll post a pic when I shave my head.
But fun aside, please pray. I'm very tired, and have had to ignore other things that are important in order to clean this mess up.
so I'm just . . . really miserable right now.
have mercy. If they ever make a remake of Star Trek
I, send in a picture of the shaved head. It may get you the part.
