Tonight I had a call from a telemarketer. Her first question was "May I speak with the man of the house?" I replied, "I am the man of the house." She paused and then said, "Thank you for your time" and hung up. Hmmm…. was it something I said?
I got something in the mail from God today. That is how I like to look at a situation where you have been thinking lots about something, then take a step in faith in one direction and then the very next day get something unsolicited in the mail related the very thing you are stepping out in faith about. I think its incredibly cool how sly God is sometimes. I mean, it could be some freak luck of the mailbag but hey . . . I just find it more exciting and rich to think that it is God’s handiwork and not some incredible timing of the US Postal Service. I mean, either way it is a miracle, right?
Speaking of amazing things, let me just say how amazing my parents are. I am so blessed to have such an awesome mom and dad. Really . . . I couldn’t begin to describe all the ways in which my parents are wonderful and wise and loving and strong and good. They came over tonight after a long day of serving others – their perfect grandson and their dear mothers – and helped me put up my Christmas wreaths outside and then sat and talked with me about some decisions I am working through. They are wonderful and caring listeners and I am so grateful to have them as sounding boards in my life. I completely hit the jackpot when I chose them as my parents. 🙂 Ok, ok … I had no choice in the matter which is probably why it turned out so well!
I’m wrapping up early tonight. I took my little sleepy pills early tonight so that I would for sure rest. Last night it escaped me as I began thinking about everything waiting at the office so I’m not taking any chances tonight!
