Out With The Old and In With The New

So my eyes have really been hurting the last two to three weeks.  I went to the eye doctor who did away with my bifocal (yay!) and adjusted my prescription a little.  I think I am going to have to wear them all the time now though (boo), but if it helps my eyes relax and not cause (or rather, aid) these silly headaches I have been struggling with then it is worth it.
In the meantime, I am trying out a new theme on the blog to aide in the relaxation of my eyes.  I am not sure I love it, but it does not glare back at me so it is okay for now.  I am reallllyyyyy in the mood for Autumn to get here and to decorate all things Autumn, but alas, it will have to wait.  I am actively looking for something more fall-ish to decorate the blog with though.

I came across a quote yesterday that I want to share with you; I believe it is just what I need (and maybe you need it as well :)) in this time of trial (i.e. at work, with a certain someone, that I do not think I can really talk about without getting myself into possible trouble)… It is as follows:

“We should be more anxious that our afflictions should benefit us than that they should be speedily removed from us.”

–Robert Hall

It impresses me that I have been thinking about things all wrong.  Instead of desiring to get out of the situation as soon as possible and rid myself of the problem, I should praise God who already knows the end of the situation and gives me grace enough to endure it until that end arrives.  Instead of worrying about the situation and what I cannot do, I should be thinking of ways I can and will benefit from it.

God is so good and so great and I am so glad that He knows all things and though I am weak and small He will be there to guide me back to Himself always….
