Coffee talk with Nadine

Twirling in my own Trailer Park
I’m sorry for the coffee talk hiatus. I’ve been twirling in my own trailer park for about a year now. And I realized it’s time to stop the spinning.

Remember that loud and crazy buzz headed bleach blonde lady? And her slogan Stop the Insanity? Same thing. 

Whatever happened to her anyway?…Squirrel! 

So today, after a year of exhaustive running around I read Hebrews 12:1-2 and find a new spin. There’s a theme here. Y’all see what I did with that?

And the author says, “…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us…” 

Now like some of you, I’ve read that eleventy-hundred times. And each time I hear God encouraging me to just run the race. Don’t give up. 

Today this verse speaks to me as God saying ‘Suck it up Pamela.’ 

THIS time I hear God telling me to stop whining. This is the plan He has laid before me. So as long as I’m in the race He set before me…read Life Path…then run it as long as I need to run. With endurance. With a glad heart. With all I have. 

So glad I read this today. 

Because the rest of the verse is easy…’fixing our eyes on Jesus.’ Jesus who already ran the race before us and for us. 

The trailer park will still no doubt continue to twirl. Just not today. 

Today I’m sucking it up.  I’m enduring a mental, physical,spiritual hardship without complaining. 


Suckingly Yours, 

Nadine Bodine

Your Very BEST friend in the whole wide world
