I Just Don't Want To Talk Today

I remember many years ago, when I was a waitress in a cool little cafe' in Houston and Derek Webb of Caedmon's Call would come in and we'd chat over coffee when my station wasn't busy.

I frequented the Bible study that he, as a part of Caedmon's Call, played for each Monday night at the First Baptist Church of Houston, and loved their music even before they had hit it big.

One of the days when he came in, Derek explained to me in detail about why he'd written the then recent song, "I Just Don't Want Coffee Today."

As I was thinking of a title for tonight's post, his song title came to mind.

So as a tribute to my then friend Derek I will say, I Just Don't Want To Talk Today....

I'll hit the highlights for you though....
I'm sick of MS...sick to death of it
I'm tired of all that it entails
I'm bummed that I was in another city for 2.5 weeks, where the humidity is higher and the elevation lower, and I felt great...but I come home to Phoenix and am tanking by the day....
I want to honor God through all of this, yet often don't feel that I am doing a very good job of that
I need to hear the voice of my Lord...I long for a fresh word from His Word...I miss Him when we haven't had our sweet time together, and it feels way too long since I've had enough of that time with Him

Forgive me if I say, "I Just Don't Want To Talk Today."

I care about you, my friend, and all that you are going through, even on days you just don't want to talk! Praying for you, asking our Father to send you a heavenly hug and to bless you with the sweet peace of His Presence today.

I'm praying for you.

This might seem like a silly question but have you tried running a humidifier at your house if that seems to make a difference?

I love Stephanie's I am going to copy it. ...hope you don't mind... :)

"Loving you in your silence, her words"

Jes, In terms of your huge "thorn" I am sure you are honoring God more than you are giving yourself credit for.

I hope and will pray that God will give you what you need to hear straight from Him to your heart!

Sounds like you might need to move...

Love, Deb
