candidate for growth

Just when all seems to be going right, challenges often come in multiple doses, applied simultaneously. When those trials are not consequences of your disobedience, they are evidence that the Lord feels you are prepared to grow more. He therefore gives you experiences that stimulate growth, understanding, and compassion. Such testing will polish you for your everlasting benefit. To get you from where you are to where He wants you to be requires of a lot of stretching, and that generally entails discomfort and pain.

Wow.

Just what I needed to hear!

(And thanks for your nice comment today. You're right , I DID look great last summer. I've just gained 30 pounds since then. Stress from the move mostly, I'd guess. I stopped eating right, too. But I'm working on it!!!!)

I am thankful you talked about allergies! I am pregnant and by 2-3 in the afternoon...I feel like the old commercial...and this is your brain on drugs! I did not realize the way I was feeling had anything to do with allergies!

Good luck on the upcoming birth!
