The Devil Made Me Do It


I’d be lying if I even tried to imagine that writing A Beautiful Life post this week isn’t tough.  I went into this week feeling so blessed and so happy to be a Christian.  I have to say the devil must have been listening; because by Wednesday I was feeling so down and defeated I was acting downright ugly.  The reasons are many, but instead of talking about “why” I want to concentrate on my actions.

While driving in the car this week talking to my most trusted, smartest, loyalest, level headed friend I decided I could stay in the funk or I could put on my big girl panties and get over it.  Guess what, the devil made me do it, that’s right.  I decided that I would not let the devil or anyone else steal my joy for another minute.  I put on the big girl panties, prayed about what was bothering me and moved on.  I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned panties, the devil and prayer in the same paragraph.  That same friend sent me an email last night that told me, “Good job Bigger Person.” 

I found out last night that Mr. Perfect was going to Florida, yeap he told me yesterday and left last night.  I have to say Mr. Perfect is getting pretty smart, he is learning how to get around me and my guilt trips.  I got a text early today that he was there safely.

I just texted him and asked if he was having fun, he said “Yes, but I’m throwing a football around, will text you later.”  I wonder if he’s on the beach. 

We haven’t colored eggs yet.  I haven’t done Easter Baskets (I’ll only be doing two, Mr. Perfect got cash), I have no idea what I’m wearing to church on Sunday, I have no idea what I’m cooking for Easter Dinner, but that’s all ok with me.  I am just going to celebrate Easter thru my creative blog friends. 

I am not going to stress that’s for sure!

I am trying to convince myself I need some craft time this weekend.

About Michelle

I started my blog as a way to connect with other paper crafters and of course it has gone a totally different direction. I've been able to share my experience as a mother, my hurt and disappointments over not having a relationship with my maternal unit, my walk with God and how knowing Him has changed me and continues to help me grow into the person I strive to be......
