    It took me a while to realize that I'm actually happy my ex-husband left me. Yup. Weird but true.

    I felt the same way after my divorce. It was painful at first but after a year I was thanking God for not having that horrible woman in my life anymore. At that point I started to move forward.

    Hindsight is 20/20. Now I can see that this is a blessing in disguise. I wake up in the morning & I feel so blessed to know that God took him out of my life for many good reasons. I know that this chapter in my life had to end so that a new one could begin.

    Have a Happy New Year everyone. Heading out the door now as we are going to Orlando for a late Christmas get together with my family for a couple days. It's a little over a 2 hour drive. Hopefully, it will be a little warmer this afternoon (mid 70's) there as it is only 40 degrees currently in Clearwater. This weather is brutal. I believe that we have suffered enough and are due for warm sunny skies.

    That's how I felt when my first wife filed for divorce in 1984. It was a tremendous relief. Good riddance.

    Happy New Year all, I would like to make a pre-midnight confession before 2017 starts:

    I still have such a long way to go. I am still overly emotional and sometimes let my emotions rather than the Lord guide me. Sometimes I still struggle with the urge to lie and sometimes I am still very stubborn. Also I am still afraid, so often... even though it says over 100 times in the bible not to be afraid.

    I pray that the Lord will continue working on me in the new year, I want to become better in the new year and keep on finding and walking on the path he has planned for me.

    I have said a prayer for God to guide you this year to spiritual prosperity and to remove all fear and anxiety from you. Happy New Year.

    Thank you the fireworks were wonderful... I missed the ball drop last night as we had family Christmas party late on the 31st and went to bed early at the hotel we were staying in over in Orlando. So hope you have a wonderful New Year too with hubby and family....

    I have been giving serious thought about quitting smoking again. As has been noted before I have a serious addiction and this area of my life must be addressed before it is too late. Only time will tell. Seriously.

    Have you tried those smoking patches
    Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore and turn to God, so that your sins may be blotted out, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
    Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armor of God, so that you can stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

    Yeah. At one time I was wearing the patches. They weren't too effective. Then I tried the nicotine gum. I actually liked the gum but still had the urge to light up. Then I was wearing the patches and chewing the gum and then later smoking while wearing the patches and chewing the gum at the same time. I must have been some kind of fool. It's going to have to be cold turkey. I quit in 2015 for 3 months and then snapped and bought a pack of L&M's to go with my morning coffee. And a Bic lighter. If I remember correctly, it was a black one. I started flicking my Bic. Not good. Felt ashamed.

    Oh I understand, I don't have any personal experience with smoking but I hope you overcome it

    I don't have a job and seemingly can't find one. Because of this, I get upset and I google random things like "Why won't anyone hire me?", "You have to jump through hoops to get a job now days", "Giving up on finding a job", etc. It's frustrating when I've sent in over 100 job applications\job inquiry emails. I guess I do this to pass the time. I've done many more than that, but those are examples. I haven't done it as much as I use to, but think this is maybe something I should work on overcoming.

    I also tend to get jealous very easily. I get mad at someone and then God brings me back and has me forgive them and pray for them.

    I understand full well how hard it is to find a job in today's economy. While not impossible it can indeed be an extremely frustrating and difficult process. Even if you have a job you have to fight to keep it. One thing that I have learned in all of my working years is that everyone is expendable. In most companies employees are considered liabilities rather than assets. Have you considered temp jobs? Often, these can lead to full time employment. Keep persevering and fighting the good fight and don't give up.

    I would suggest networking talk to people and ask where they work and if they are hiring and ask for a referral.... Sometimes it's not what you know but who you know.... God bless I know it is hard.

    Continue to pray, pray, pray some more for God's help.
