None of these is a motive behind my sharing our troubles.
See, I have enough sense to know that, compared to many others, our troubles are relatively small. When I think of some folks right here in my own senior mobile home park, and the troubles they face and are enduring, I know I am blessed, indeed.
My main reason for posting some general issues is to help others who are going through worries far worse than my own. You see, I figure if they see that, with faith, we can get through these things, then perhaps they, too, will open their hearts and minds to ask for heavenly help.
So, the reason behind my being so frank about our household issues is simply that – if we can get through these things, with his help, then perhaps you can, too.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep each of you in my heart and in my prayers…personally, I love looking back at troubles I’ve had in the past, and seeing how they were overcome and how things worked out. In this way, hindsight is truly a happy thing.
