One of Those Days...

"The trouble is, I've got things the matter with my conscience," sobbed
Anne. "Oh, this has been such a Jonah day, Marilla."

-From Anne of Avonlea

I love Anne of Green Gables! Unfortunately, I can relate to her "Jonah day" It seems like it's one of those days where everything is a little crazier than normal and even the littlest thing balloons to something bigger(than it really is!).

Algebra is not my cup of tea and never was it more evident than today! We were working through some problems and I got really lost and confused. That's one thing I can't stand! Most things I'm able to figure out with a sufficient amount of instruction and practice, but that wasn't happening today! I totally didn't understand these particular problems and I got really frustrated!

I am still a little uneasy about these problems, especially since I have a test coming up next week. I plan on getting with a tutor soon so I can get this taken care of. Something as little as some 'ol algebra problems got me really down this afternoon. It was so nice to come home and be with the family and not think about school or math! I know I can do it! God has carried me this far through all the rough patches my school journeys. And knowing me, there will be many more rough patches ahead!

Jonah days always work out. And in the end I have to give up everything to God and not let myself hold on to things I can’t solve!

The week is halfway over! Yay!

Love, Adrienne Renea
