g.  i lost my cell phone.
h.  like, i lost it forever, its gone.  like "not lost, oh there it is in the couch..."
i.  like fell out of the buggy in target and gone.
j.  dad fell and broke his hip and is in the hospital.
k.  i don't know my mom, brother or nephews cell numbers.
l.  all my contacts, vital information, everything...in my phone.
m.  no lock code, nothing.  just out there for the world to see.
n.  jessica has no phone.
o.  jessica doesn't call to check on her dad for two days because...
p.  i don't know numbers.

Oh Jessica sounds like you have had a sucky week! Sorry! I've never lost my phone, thank God, but I know of people going on ebay and buying phones at a much cheaper rate. I think the key is you have to make sure you are getting a phone that has a card in it compatible with your service provider. Not sure if that helps. Good luck! And Amen it's Friday!

prayers for an easier week to come, for a new phone to make its way to you. so sorry that you've been presented with these trials friend!
as you know, God is in control and will get you through this too!

Hi Jess, last week, we were just talking about praising God through whatever comes our way. I blogged about it on July 19. These things really hurt, but somehow, someday, it will be worth it. (A friend at our church died last Sunday in a motorcycle wreck. He was only 42.)
These momentary light afflications, can't remember the reat of that verse, but you know the one, something about they can't compare with the glory that awaits us. Cute puppy!
