B is for Bubble

When I was little, I was sure that I could see castles and wonderlands in soap bubbles.  I also thought they were a great value- you could by a plastic container of bubble stuff for about 10 cents- wand and all...

But, my attention span being what it is, I would get bored after about five minutes and that would be that.  They'd sit around for years (we don't throw out things that are still good in my family)...

So why am I blogging about bubbles?  Well, sometimes they burst.  Whether financial or personal, they can leave you with a film of messy stuff and leave you wondering what happened to your plans.  To keep it real, our bubble was a housing investment in Naples,  Florida.  After almost ten years and hundreds of thousands of dollars paid out... we've hit bottom.  The stress has taken a huge toll on my husbands health- he had always kept his credit rating perfect.  (Bless his heart.)

So where is God in this bubble debacle?  He said, "lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world."  Matthew 28:20

I believe it.  It's scary at times, but I really want to see where this will end.  Of course I pray that all your bubbles are made of soap, but for the big things remember that He is there no matter where you are.

Blessings.

The thing about bubbles, as you point out, is that there's always stuff around from which to create more. Keep faith.

Thanks for the follow. I'm glad to do the same.

Golden Eagle!! Hi. Yup, bad investments are so disappointing and can be so costly.
I just want to gain the personal victory by not giving up.

I'm enjoying the amazing science blogs on The Golden Eagle by the way!
