I know I am an alien to this world. I have heard it many times. In this world we have many wonderful miracles from our Lord births of babies, marriges of loving people, cures for diseases,even the nature around us that scream His name. Why does it seem like when God sends a miracle the world sends a disappointment. As a Christan woman I try to focus on the Word of God and act as I should to the world to let them know I am a Christ follower. As a human woman I get angry at certain things and want to strike out.
I should explain a little. As you know we were blessed by a beautiful baby boy a few days ago. I took my mom, who got hurt at work a few weeks ago and was depressed, up to see our baby. It was wonderful. The visit was magical. My daughter in laws family is wonderful and welcome us into their home, where she and my son live with open arms. It was truly wonderful.
Today my mom got a call from her sister, her only sister. Just to give you some back ground my mom took total care of my grandmother without any help from her sister for 8 years; 16 total is you count the first operation my gram had to bring my mom back to her home town and move in with my gram. About 1 1/2 years ago my mom moved and brought my grandmother here. I along with my mom took care of her here(with no help for sister I might add). Mom moved into her own place with my grandmother and then Nana (my grandmother) got to much for mom to handle and she had to go to a nursing home. Sister decided her mother should be moved back to Pittsburgh, so they arranged it and mom took Nana back to Pittsburgh. While my mom was taken care of my grandmother her sister kept accusing her of stealing my grandmothers money. My grand mother had a small account to bury her and her ssi check got deposited into a saving account attached to a checking account with her and moms name on it. Mom used Nana's money to help pay bills, which it what is would have been used for if my grandmother lived on her own, ya know. Well back to the present. mom was supposed to send paper work on the bank account up to the nursing home where my grandmother is staying she got hurt and was unable to move the boxes, so she has not done it yet. Today she got a call from her sister who told her she was suing her for stealing my grandmother money. Because the lady called my aunt to tell her she had not gotten paperwork from my mom yet. When my mom tried to tell her sister she fell and was hurt unable to lift anything her own sister told her she did not care about her problems and she was suing her. It made me so mad I just wanted to call her and tell her off, punch her or something like that.
Of course I will not but it just made me think about how much we are aliens to this world. God preforms a beautiful miracle and evil has to make something happen to take away the joy. It makes me sad to think about someone so bitter; but I choose to instead focus on the Joy the Lord has given me and my new sweet sweet grandson.
