Tuesday

A Day in the Life

Today, I didn't want to hear:

  • "Mom, the plumber is here." (okay, when a plumber is needed, it is always good for one to be there, but it was 7:48, I was trying to leave for work and Troy was still in the shower. So, of course, the plumber was 12 minutes EARLY).
  • From Hector at the Help Desk: "Yes, ma'am, I realize you've been entering that data for 30 minutes (almost my entire conference time! HELLO!) but there is no way to get the program "unfrozen" without losing that data."
  • Text message from Troy, at home with the plumbers: "Call when you can -- big problem."
  • I call: "Hang on, I'm on the other line with State Farm."
  • Email later: "State Farm is sending an adjuster, but they say it doesn't sound like something they will cover."

Today, I was thrilled to hear:

  • But blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose confidence is in him. Jeremiah 17:7
  • He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy. Job 8:21
  • Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:28, 29

Sorry for the yuck! Rise up...look it in the eye...laugh at the danged thing...God does a good job of not letting us trust in our cash. He gives and takes away. Although I do not think God caused your plumbing troubles....let's just make that clear, but you can still glorify Him in your response...go glorify girl.
