The Most Important Thing

"It’s 12:33am on a Sunday, and I haven’t slept in my own bed or shaved my legs in my own shower in about two months.

I haven’t been alone for more than 30 waking minutes since March 24th.

I went to a new church today. Two of them, actually.

I have holes in my boots and a blister from flip-flops given to me by a woman who knew I needed them.

I just missed an important credit card payment on accident, and they don’t take apology letters.

I can’t decide if I’m more upset that I decided to wait for marriage, or that I’m not already married.

I just want to sleep next to him right now.

I’ve been sitting at this damn table for two hours now, looking at this little list of things, wondering whose idea it was to give me a platform of any sort. "

Hey, if you normally pay your bill on time, and you call the credit card company and ask nicely, a lot of time they'll waive the late penalty. Especially if you've had the card for awhile! It's worth a shot for sure :)

Thank you.

i agree. call or email your cc company. be super nice. they usually waive one for you. if they don't do it the first time- call again, and be a little less nice. it works. i always pay on time, but accidents happen!

waiting stinks.

I never get sick of your raw honesty, your vulnerability, and your remembrance of the Truth. "Even the darkness will be as light to Him" (Psalm 139). He always pulls us back -- even in the midst of trouble. Have hope and be blessed today. Thanks for sharing this.
