It has been an exceptionally busy week. It has been a very unusual day! Therefore, you will be reading this week’s post- next week.
As you are likely aware, ALME likes to publish it’s weekly posts on Thursday or Friday. Today is my self-imposed deadline to get our e-mail sent and our story on Facebook. This time, however, it will not be so. For today included:
keys locked in a vehicle resulting in a call to and wait for AAA
sporadic internet service preventing the saving of changes after they were made as I was writing the article. I would then get to try to remember what I had changed and start over!
a volunteer proof reader, for whom I am exceedingly grateful, who wasn’t able to check the story because I didn’t meet the deadline for her to do so
a phone charger that blew up resulting in electrical problems and no internet service at all
our website e-mail isn’t working so those signed up to receive the article won’t be able to receive it
There was a day when I would have been in a panic because I didn’t get our post out. I would have chastised myself and felt guilty for not getting it done. This week, however, I am simply choosing to trust God to cover it, and to let our readers know what has happened. I will finish the article next week when our internet is reliable, my proof-reader is available, and my phone charger is not blowing up. Maybe it will be even better because I have more time to finish it!
I know The Lord is not surprised about these things. I wasn’t hurt by the charger. The car did eventually get unlocked. I have told Him I was sorry for not starting on the article earlier this week (procrastinating). I have come up with a plan to help me do better next time. And I know He understands.
So I will close this note with a prayer.
Father, I thank You for each set of eyes that is reading the words on this page. I pray that as they go through this week that You would bless them with Your Peace. I pray that You will watch over and protect them and those that they love. I ask you to intervene on their behalf when there are circumstances that require Your help. I pray that You will guide and lead and protect them each step that they take every day. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
