I have been absent from blogging.
Sometimes, I have read some of your blogs,
but did not comment.
At other times, I didn't read any.
I have not posted for almost two weeks.
Explanation: A switch of medications.
Something I researched and agreed to do.
I have a good doctor and I believe I am in good hands.
The body has not liked the change
and I have felt anti-social
and/or too tired to think of something to write.
I am rounding a major bend and in three weeks
I will be completely switched.
My body is finally adapting
and thus, my brain is beginning to want to function.
I don't know how much I will blog or comment,
but know that I care for all of you -- my blogger friends.
My silence only means my body is adjusting.
A HUGE moment occurred yesterday:
I joined a local church.
It is where my dad pastored when I was in high school.
It is the church God has been instructing me to join.
I've always been a bit rebellious,
but the rebellion often manifests as passive aggression.
I don't 'do' as much as I 'do not do'.
So I did not join though I've lived here nine years.
Well, yesterday I became a conscious (not simply on paper)
member of a church.
Below are some pics of the house.
We have possession
and my husband has started on the living room ceiling.
He and a friend tore out the ceiling in the living room.
He is wiring places for lights.
Then he will put dry wall up and do the finishing touch.
We've got a guy lined up to paint it then.
I commend my day to You
and ask You to be in charge of it
from beginning to end.
Enable me to do all
I need to do successfully and well.
Help me to do it
carefully and not carelessly.
Help me to do it all diligently
and not lazily.
Help me to do everything skillfully
and not shabbily.
I know I cannot do all I need to do in my day
without Your help.
I don't want to ever take for granted that,
just because I have done some of these things before,
they are always going to turn out right
I know that sometimes
even the simplest things
can become a problem or a challenge,
so I don't want to assume that
everything will automatically go smoothly.
That's why I submit
my entire day to You
and ask You to be in charge of all I am doing.
Specifically, what I need the most help
with today is:
The ways I want You to guide me today are:
What I am most concerned about today is:
The things I want to accomplish today are:
The people I need to see and talk to are:
What I hope will happen today is:
What I don't want to happen today is:
Lord, I thank You that You are in charge
of my day and all that happens.
Be in charge of the surprises,
and the things that turn out differently
than I planned.
Enable me to hear Your voice
speaking to my heart,
telling me the way I should go
and what I should do.
In Jesus' name I pray.
This is the day the Lord has made;
we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Blessing to you all as you go about your week.
