Today I am sharing two Facebook memories. Both were written the same day but shared at different times. When I talk about my 40’s being crazy, this is one of the examples.
On February 28, 2019, I was preparing to go to the movies to see Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral. The actual premiere was on March 1, 2019, but I always like to go see his movies the day before. You know, so I can feel like I get to see it before everyone else. Crazy, right?! Laughing
Anyhoo… Here’s what happened the night I was supposed to go see the movie, written the next day.
MY HOUSE FLOODED!!
Facebook Memory No. 1: March 1, 2019
Sitting here thinking. Y’all, God really does have a sense of humor. Just thinking how I was in the bathroom getting ready. Thinking about how I was going to be laughing. Then God said, “Oh, you wanna laugh. I’ll make you laugh!” And He did just that!! He said, “You ain’t gon’ be laughing at nobody else. I got you!” I love my life and I love my God. That’s how we interact.
Facebook Memory No. 2: March 1, 2019
Last night threw me for a loop! Everything happened so fast. It’s one of those situations where you really don’t have time to think about how to react, you just go with the flow. The guy who came to help clean up the water kept saying I was taking it well. I told him that being emotional wasn’t going to help the situation. It wasn’t going to change anything. I laughed. Thanked God it happened before I left for the movies.
Now that had me disappointed. I was so ready to laugh. Can’t y’all tell I love to laugh. I was laughing when I saw the water rushing in. Hmm… I’m beginning to think that’s how I’ve learned to cope with craziness. A few years ago I probably would’ve freaked out. Thank you, Lord, for calming my spirit, for bringing me peace. Y’all, things happen. Life happens.
Over the years I’ve learned we really do have a choice over the way we react to situations. I’m not saying that I never become emotional because I would be lying. Believe me, I know how to throw FABULOUS pity parties. However, most of the time I try to put a positive spin on things that happen, especially those beyond my control. I know God is the only one in true control and He has a reason for allowing things to happen. We may not understand why, but He does, and we have to trust Him. Okay. That’s all. Thanks for listening. Enjoy your weekend! I love, y’all!💕
I handled that event pretty well. I believe God and all of His angels were surrounding me at that moment because of the way things just fell into place. And y’all, I LAUGHED!!
Guess what?! I’m about to laugh again. Gonna watch A Madea Family Funeral today to commemorate that moment.
Y’all have a blessed day. By the way – Happy March! Wishing you a month of peace, love, happiness and blessings.♥️
