I know that we are not suppose to worry and give our troubles to God. Sometimes that is very, very hard! My oldest son moved back home in March '08 to get his life back on track. He is a really good guy. Got his heart really broken and still trying to figure out who he is without the girl he loved. They have been split up for over 2 years now but he still grieves. I see it. He didn't finish college but is fairly close (i think) and he has a lot of loans to pay for not to mention a credit card bill that is not HUGE but still needs to get paid off. That was part of the deal of moving back home. Quit drinking, get a job, and since he is living here rent free- get out of debt quickly so he can move on with life.... He still drinks more than I'm comfortable with, although I don't allow it in my home. (I'm not opposed to having a drink once in a while but if I think it's a problem then it's a problem for me) I feel he relies on it to much- esp. since the breakup. I told him at Christmas that was all I wanted for a present was for him to stop drinking. I think he is doing better. I pray, I hope. He has kept a really respectful job for 6 months now but he is spending every dime. This picture is one he sent me from his cell phone of his latest purchase. Today was payday and he bought his 3rd guitar. He already has 2 that he purchased with the maxed out credit card and they are STILL not paid for and to top it all off he doesn't even know how to play. God love him. I wish he would meet the girl of his dreams and learn to play the guitar and pay off his debt and start keeping house (and let's not forget get his own place) and just live happily ever after. Isn't that what we all want anyway? :) In the meantime, I'll try to busy my mind, find something to work on and let go and let God.
