My mother-in-law (and the rest of us)
« on: June 27, 2013, 04:23:13 PM »
So my in-laws are on a church trip to Italy where they are spending twelve days going up the coast from Rome to Milan and taking in all the sights.  Sounds lovely, doesn't it?

My mother-in-law is not having a good time, to say the least, over-reacting to everything and anything and basically bringing the ENTIRE trip down.  Please pray for her.

Please also pray for me, my wife, and my father-in-law that we get strength to not blow up on her and make it worse because, frankly, I want to grab and shake and slap the silly out of her.  She's acting like a child.

Lord, have mercy on Schultz and his mother and his family.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
