Dear God, show us the road
that you have chosen for us,
and give us the courage
to walk down it... Amen

Time...

"I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety" - Psalm 4:8

I think Tuesday was totally skipped from my life. How did I miss it? I need time...more time.

I took Cody to the Dr. He has a mild case of whiplash. Dr. wanted him to take meds, but Cody will not take a pill. I guess this is a good thing, but he really needed this medication.
We have the estimate for the damage. Oh my, I had no idea it would be so much. $2500. I tell you, I am so anxious to get a bill for the adjustment they will surely make on our premium. I don't pretend to understand how it works. I pay my premiums for years...no claims...then one claim, and the rates go outrageously high. I still count my blessings, it could be much worse.

Today is Deena's Autumn Open House...I have nothing for you. Lest you'd like to see 3 tiny pumpkins nesting in my old rusty green grass cutter. This is where my need for time comes. The summer flowers still linger, withered, ugly. I need to finish laundry, a project I started for my friend in NC months ago, clean the flower gardens, plant mums, place bittersweet. I won't think of starting Christmas offerings. When will that happen. I also have company coming in a few weeks...from Texas. My home needs to be welcoming for this dear soul. Positively, I have no time for worry. I gave Cody and Jesse-Ray to "Him" as they drove away in the fog this morn.

Lord, help me manage time, prioritize, slow down. Bring order to my chaos...Amen

My Joys-
* the promise
* my house is founded on the rock
* late night bonfires (watching Mark return to childhood)
* morning fog...I won't have to take my morning walk
* the ministry of music - (Promise of a lifetime - Kutlass)
