Sometimes Life Stinks.
I woke from a dead sleep this morning to the aroma of SKUNK!!! I’m not even kidding. I don’t remember EVER being awakened by a smell…but, this morning was a first.
I thought maybe it was a bad dream. Or the dog. But, after further examination, I am pretty sure either a family of skunks were hanging out near my heat pump or one had crawled under my bed. Gratefully, (and yes, I did check) it was the former not the later.
There was nothing that helped. Room spray made it worse. The fan just stirred it up.
So, we just endured and I prayed my clothes didn’t grab the odor as I headed out the door.
Outside the scent was MUCH stronger. I only knew that because I think I got used to the inside version.
Kinda made me think about life. Sometimes, we get in a bad place. And life stinks. But, we don’t have to stay there. We can change locations. We can look for resources to make things better. Or, we can hang around until we get used to the stench.
And, I for one, do not recommend that.
Praying that when you and I encounter situations that stink….that God will give us the wisdom to not hang around and peace enough to not carry the scent around with us!!
