Happy Thanksgiving, A Sleepless Night, But Faith Endures
I woke up very happy this morning, even after a sleepless night of seeking God's Will and His advice on something. When I did finally nod off Tugie wanted out. Surprisingly, I woke up from cat naps all happy and with clarity and with a plan. God and George have helped me to see that I've been taking a few things seriously that are really not near as important as I've been making it. Story of my life I think. I've always been serious, and responsible, to the nth degree. I need to knock it down a few notches. Nanny Voss used to tell me to quit being so serious. lol Thank goodness for friends that make me laugh and pull out that side of me at times. I need to laugh more and worry less.
So we had a grand evening by going to the grocery store for my Irish Stew for tomorrow at Mom's. George obtained his shrimp/sushi for today. We came home and cleaned. It was nice to get up and it be already in good shape.
I'm cracking up b/c the dogs are sleeping good right now even with my 80's music playing on Alexa. I'm sitting here yawning and about to go find more coffee!
Where's my toothpicks? Need 'em to keep the eyes open today. But it's ok. God and I wrestled over a few things with the tossing and turning. He had a few things He wanted to say and I had all sorts of questions. He answered what I needed for now. And now I'm happy and we are going to enjoy our day and the day after that and the day after that. And.....we will go forward. God places our steps through all of our trials and tribulations. About a week or week and a half ago, I had a dream...no really, I had a dream...I think it was a sign. So we've been talking about it since. I know I talk in cryptism, but just can't share every little thought and issue. Lord knows I do open up with most.
So, you all enjoy your feast and family! ;-)
All is well here and will be - regardless of the arrows that are sure to come. I know that the devil has his arrows ready - and God will lead me away from their destruction. It's so good to have faith. I'm not sure how a person could stand being in this world without it. It's the ONE thing you can count on. The fight is real and the fight is on.
But we have each other and today is the day to celebrate that. Ya'll have a good one!
