“Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thy heart be hasty to utter anything before God; for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.”
Ecclesiastes 5:2 ASV
Good morning and happy Monday. The last couple of weeks have been quite busy, but only with good. My husband and I were able to see the Newsboys and Mandisa in concert. Wow! A video about my book was released on Two Egg TV last week. Actually, it will be released a little at a time over the next few weeks. I was grateful to learn that I will be speaking twice at the National American Planning Association’s Convention in Houston next month. I am juggling book signings, work and school. In my down time I enjoy my husband, children and grandchildren. I could have never dreamed of the life I’m living. Life is very good and I’m so blessed.
Today, the Code Enforcement Officer and I conducted some site visits around town. Nearly a year and a half following Category 5 Hurricane Michael, driving around town is depressing. Blue tarps still dominate the scenery. There are people living in undesirable situations. Landmark buildings damaged by the storm are being demolished. Although slowly a normal is being realized, it is still tough.
During those moments that seem a little overwhelming, it’s nice to rest in the peace and stillness of God’s love. I enjoy knowing that He loves me for just being me. I don’t have to earn his affection through doing anything. In those quiet moments I listen for His voice.
I hope you enjoy your day. May God bless you.
