Dealing With It

There are times in life when you just have to deal with a situation.  Sometimes things happen that we don't like, want or understand, but you have to grit your teeth and continue on.  Go through the motions of the day and put one foot in front of the other.
Days when the thing to do isn't easy.  When you know the right thing to do is also the hardest.  When the easy thing would be to simply go back to bed, pull the covers over your head and sleep until the "thing" goes away.

Unfortunately the "thing" isn't going away anytime soon.  The "thing" must be dealt with.

Sometimes, seeing a humorous spot in the midst of tumult is the turning point.  To keep things from being completely dark, to bring laughter to the lips and a tiny spark to the eye.  To know that though laughing is completely inappropriate it is necessary in the moment.

So that is what we are doing, dealing with it.  Knowing that we can lean on God for strength, wisdom and guidance.  That is all that will get us through.
