Genesis 15:15 (NAS)
And as for you, you shall go to your fathers in peace; you shall be buried at a good old age.

Hello Lord. Here I am again. Yes today is one of my old days again. You know what I mean. Not that I'm feeling old, I guess what I'm saying is, I feel over whelmed today. I want to slow things down so i can get more things done. Give me more hours in the day maybe.

I get up early enough, make the bed, start a load of laundry, feed the dogs, and the day begins. It's one thing then another, the phone rings taking up my time, time I set aside to do what I need to get done and what I so wished I could get done.

By noon I feel like I could take a nap, but know I must push forward. On to still another chore and then before you know it, it's time to fix dinner.

I know Lord I feel like I'm complaining again. I have so much to be thankful for. Why if it wasn't for my health I wouldn't be getting up each day to hear the birds sing or see the trees blowing in the wind. I'd miss the fragrant sweet smell of the roses by my front door. Much less be able to clean and cook for the day.

Lord I just miss being able to do things faster. You know like I used to be able to do when I was twenty or even thirty. You say it's my time to slow down and bask in Your glory. Reflect on my life and let You take my hand and lead me. You know that's hard Father. I'm still trying to stay in control. I forget that You are in control.

Thank you Father for reminding me that you are in control of my life. I pray that I remind myself of that each day when I wake up and continually throughout the day. I may not be able to take the steps two at a time but each step I take You are with me. Thank you Lord. Amen.

Finish All My Projects

I have made a new year's resolution. You know what those are don't you? Those are little notes to yourself vowing to do something this year and then into the second month of the year you've already forgotten what it was you were going to do!

I haven't made any new year's resolutions for a number of years knowing full well I couldn't live up to them. But, this year is going to be different. I've over extending myself on several writing projects and I've vowed to finish those projects this year. This is the year!

I'll keep you posted.

My little Taz has been quiet lately, but then you can never be sure. Just when you think you've got her figured out she ups and does it again. From getting stuck in the baby store basket (yes in the basket with her legs dangling) to designing the new carpet in the media room. By designing I mean with bright hi liters, every color you can think of. Yes big brother forgot to put them away.

How can you not love that sweet, blue eyed, red headed, dimpled, pixie faced little girl. You got the picture? When she does something she isn't supposed to she just smiles and you melt right there in your tracks.

Until next time.
