Last night/this morning was a bit crazy at our house. I’ll spare you details but, suffice it to say, I am not my normal bright-eyed, bushy-tailed self this morning. But, having responsibilities – and not wanting to ignore God’s word in today’s Proverbs reading – I have been up progressing with my morning.
After getting my more pressing things out of the way, I decided I had a bit of time for a nice, leisurely, bath. Now leisurely for me is about a fifteen minute bath – I’m not much of a “loll around” kind of gal. However, because of the aforementioned crazy night, I was way too relaxed by the warm water. I FELL ASLEEP in the tub! I know – I hear you chuckling! Thank You, God, for watching over me while providing me rest and relaxation. Thank You for Your principle of buoyancy – not often thought of by me but very handy in today’s situation.
So I wake up to find it is now 10:30! One of today’s duties is to get my stranded son, who lives about 25 minutes from here, to work by 11:00. Yep, I see you did the math! Here is where the hubby comes in. He is currently not on assignment and is in the office – which is about ten minutes from said stranded son. I ‘IM’d” him and asked if he was at a place he could leave work and deliver Sean to his job. He was, and is now taking that responsibility on for me. Thank You, God, that Your timing is perfect. That for this time, in this instance, Barry was in a position to leave his post to come willingly to the aid of his family. You are amazing, God.
I’m up and at it again. I am better for the extra rest, but God knew that would be the case. After all, He is my Creator. I will do my best today, and tonight – God willing – I will sleep! Thank You, God, that Your grace pours over me and provides abundantly for my every need. Thank You for allowing the extra rest You provided – it was unusual, but it was divine! Thank You for what You protected me from in my tiredness. Thank You for the mercy You have provided me by drawing me to Your Son, in Your way, at Your time.
Praying your day will be blessed.
