I spent the day quietly. Extra time in the Word this morning. A couple of phone calls to friends who I haven’t talked to for awhile. Getting things put back in order. All our company has gone home. Though we loved having each and every one of them here, we admit to being just a little tired. (For the last 6 weekends in a row we have had overnight company staying with us. The last two weeks we have had company. And the 4 weekends before the last 6, in which we had overnight company, were filled with graduation events.) Yesterday after church we all took very long naps. A few days ago, I thought that this upcoming week would still be a little busy, because I would be attending one Bridal Shower, and co-hosting a Baby Shower at church for about 60-70 people the next night! But, in just a few days time, both events have been wiped off of my schedule. This morning, I spent quite a bit of time planning out my week, so that I could get everything done and, especially, not forget anything. About 11:30 a.m., I got a phone call and found out that, due to scheduling conflicts, the Baby Shower which my friend and I were going to be hosting on behalf of our church was going to be postponed until the end of the summer. I sat down, took out my notebook and looked at my schedule for today and this week, and found myself checking things off, saying, “Don’t have to do that…don’t have to do that…don’t have to do that…”
Remember last week when I re-posted the article about not worrying or fretting because, in my past experience, God has always canceled something whenever I felt overwhelmed or He thought it was going to be “too much”?
(or…maybe He has other work for me to do?)
sat on the deck in the shade…
It was wonderful.
