“Carter, I haven’t had coffee yet…”


Things happen. It can be good, bad and a whole lot of ugly. This week started off bad and then drifted off to the worst week ever for me. Now, most people know what week this is but to others who don’t know me, this week was the Butler County Fair. Every year 4H kids take projects and then show them off at the fair, then they’ll get ribbons for their projects. But unfortunately for me, showing has been more negativity than actual showing. I’ve been ratted on by people, dehydrated, overly tired and sick of people. So, basically my week at the fair has been ruined by others that I’ll not name. I did place in things, but it was the negativity that ended up getting to me at the end of each day at fair. I was this close and dropping everything I’ve done over my last year and forgetting it all, but then I remembered: God is bigger than anything I have done.

With all this stuff I’ve dealt with during this current week, I completely forgot about God and my walk with Him. My worry that’ll be in the worst mood throughout the week clouded my faith and the hope I once carried before this whole week started off. Now, now I’m a pile of hurt and anger from all this negativity and I just want to hide away from these hurtful people. But you know what? Why should I hide, when God has my back and I have a family and great friends to kick those hurtful people to the curb. I’m not a superhero, and neither are my family or friends, but God is and He has been there for me. I’m glad I haven’t given up on myself or on my fair week because if I did, then I would’ve allowed those people to win me over and I wasn’t going to allow that.

I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”  Matthew 19:26

With that being said, I am doing okay, just kinda sick of people and not wanting to hang at the fair because of certain people. So, I’d you don’t hear from or see me, then that’s why. But, please, if you get a chance to go the the fair, Josh is there and so are our goats. See ya later, guys and thanks for reading.
