It is so nice to wake up in the morning and hear Aleahna Yell out "It snowed, IT snowed! Isn't is wonderful" Daemien replying " Yes it is" So we got our winter gear on and headed outside. It was fun making snow angels and visiting the river.

Trails are they really for our good

Have you ever felt like you were in the line of JOB. I feel that way quite a bit and wonder how financial matters are suppose to be for my good? Really, How does it make me a better person? I asked myself over and over again this past weekend. Why did our car cost close to Ten thousand to repair. Why did we have to pay 1175.00 to fix it. Why does insurance cost so much? Why did my van break? and Why does 1 part, cost over 1000.00? Why did my Stove go POOF? Why is it not working? Money certainly doesn't grow on trees? Why does my cousin have to suffer through a foot amputation tomorrow? and Why does the hardware in my wrist bother me so much that I must have it removed? Why does my husband have to work so hard and we just seem to keep getting buried in debt? Blessed I am for I have a place to live and I do have wonderful Parents and Inlaws. Blessed that I have great children and grandchildren. Those are the things that matter most in this world. Blessed that I have a temple that I can visit only 30 minutes away from my home. Blessed that I have a Savior who loves me and knows me. But back to the Why? What lessons am I going to learn from this. To tell the truth, I really don't want to learn yet another lesson. I just want to have no trials in my life and everything happy. Just enough money to get buy on and maybe save a little for a rainy day. Maybe some for a vacation. They say Money is the root to all evil. With that it mind, money can bring peace and no worries too. Why do some have money and never struggle in life? Why do others have to struggle? So back to my title Are trials really for our good?
