A thief in the night

Well, they say bad things come in threes.

First, my relationship fell apart (though I do realize that it was for the best -- in the long run!). Then, my freelance opportunity disintegrated before my eyes (though that didn't stop me from setting this direction as a course for my little biz start-up). And then, last night, my house was burgled -- WHILE I WAS SLEEPING! The thief took my 37-inch LCD flat-screen TV, some cash from my purse, and my new cell phone. (Though, thank God, he left my credit cards and IDs, and did not venture further than the family room and kitchen.)

Of course, it could have been much, much worse. I shudder to think what might have befallen me as I slept soundly in my bed. Luckily, this thief was just after quick cash. And he took things that are easily replaceable (though I can hardly afford to do so at the moment!).

I'm starting to feel like: ENOUGH, already! I'm due for some good luck, some good news -- something to break my way. And I'm losing a bit of heart, to be perfectly honest.

Still, I won't let this bring me down. I'm keeping my chin up (though it's admittedly a bit shaky at the moment), and anticipating that lucky break is just around the corner. ... I may have been broken into, but I'm not broken!!!

Wow! You really need to start praying!! I will pray for you also!! It can't hurt! I hope things get better. Sometimes you get under a dark cloud and you have to figure out where it came from and ask God for help!
