Here’s an excerpt of a recent visit by Senator John McCain to ‘Late Night With Conan O’Brien’.
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.
After watching this video:
I had these thoughts……
51st: State of Confusion
52nd: State of Chaos
53rd: State of Liberalism
54th: State of Hopelessness
55th: State of Frustration
56th: State of Denial
57th: State of Senselessness
And I thought myself soooo witty!
Then I found THIS!!
It left me grateful for three things:
1. My lack of desire to run for President.
2. The fact that I don’t have to make a living with my wit.
3. My ears never being the focus of any cartoonist!
Blogger’s Note: I’m not invested in any political candidate this election, so take this for what it’s worth. I’m pretty sure that what Obama was trying to say is that he has made 57 visits to states during the campaign. There are enough BIG things to be concerned with about the candidates without making much out of little.
Okay, so I’m having some real fun here at home with pictures from our recent photo shoot. Man – I’m loving Digital 10!
Hope you have a blessed weekend.
Brian Anstey, 31, and Elka Shapiro, 29, were married recently in New York State. The couple, who say they have no religious affiliation, decided to play up the major factor of their relationship – laughter!
With laughter as your wedding theme, what else could you possibly do but ask Kathy Griffin to officiate your wedding? Because Kathy has a unique relationship with Jesus. (see here) Ummm – yeah, don’t follow that link if you are easily offended! She even went through the ordeal of online ordination in order to accomodate these die-hard fans.
You can follow this link for more information.
So what’s next? Dane Cook [with on online law degree] granting divorces?
I’m just saying……..
