Finding joy in frustration

Yesterday I was so frustrated.
No, it wasn’t teenagers. They’re long gone.
No, it wasn’t my dear husband. He’s working from 6 a.m. to close to 10 p.m. right now.
Yes, you’ve got it. It was technology. And I started bashing myself, as I typically do. Do you do this too?
I’m not smart enough.
I can’t figure this out.
I’m too old for this stuff.
And then a tattered little note fluttered out from an old yellow pad I was using to take notes for an online conference.
It said in familiar handwriting, “Nothing can shake [You] . . . and me.”
My friend June had apparently written that little note to me, probably at our favorite writers conference many years ago, and slipped it to me just when I needed it.
My dear friend June . . . who has been gone from this earth now for many years.
And there it was slipped to me again . . . seemingly from the skies. This time from God, to give me assurance, a bit of tears, a lot of smiles . . . and much joy.
May our great God slip you a note of love today . . . and perhaps this is actually it: you are loved!
