Mom's Death and Dysfunctional Family and Other Things

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Well we are still grieving my mother's death; she was a sweet lady. My sister Carol talked about how she changed after she became a Christian. That she had such a sweet spirit all the time. I will miss her dearly. Our family is still dysfunctional. My sister Shirley refuses to forgive us; she hardly talked to me at the funeral. She does not even act like a Christian anymore. the Bible says we will know them by their fruits. Well hers are rotten so that means she is not one of us. god pointed out the verses in First John to me yesterday. The verses that say if you do not love your brother who you see than how can you love God who you do not see? If we love each other the love of God is in us. If we do not then we are none of His. I had to get another computer again. We need it with two of us going to college. i am struggling to understand my assignment this week. i am supposed to define the roles various people have in a multimedia website. I picked Sparkpeople.com. I am waiting on the professor for further illumination on it.

    When you come from a dysfunctional family it is easy to focus on other people.Our thinking can go from Fixing them to Blaming them. Death of a linchpin can make things topsy turvy. (Been there) It is good you have classmates and a church family to help keep you grounded. The rest is up to you. Think of the things you have accomplished this week. Every day you make the choices you make. Small steps add up and you choose whether to kick yourself over the mistakes or celebrate the good things. It is ok to give yourself time to be down and negative, then move on. Keep checking out areas of SparkPeople that give you encouragement. And do it one small step at a time.
