Kings, Murders, Wars and Treachery

Ugh, I'm up to my eyeballs in kings, murders, wars, and treachery!

I'm almost done with 2 Kings. I thought the Law was hard to read. Give me chapter upon chapter of the Law and let me forget the king after king of whom was said, "...did evil in the sight of the Lord".

I'm not feeling very inspired to write. I just found it so very sad that bad kings followed in their fathers' footsteps if they were bad; but, even most of the sons of the good kings turned away from the Lord. Then, a king would come along and do good, seemingly all on his own.

It makes me conscious of the example I set for my children. I think that perhaps the good kings must have been too distracted to be good fathers. While I'm not a father, I do need to be careful not to be too distracted as a mother. Many things can take my attention. I need to make certain that I'm focusing on the things that will last and will bless my family and the Father.

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
