My business will be full blast in less than a month and Sheila carries a vital role in that business. My journey of helping Sheila through this will not be easy, however I hope the one thing she learns from me that it is her journey and not the outcome that is important. I hope she learns that in our journey that Christ is reflected.
I pray Dear Lord, help me to be the employer that I must be to reflect Christ.

We had dinners for my uncle going into a mental institution, another uncle going off to war in the early 70's, divorces, separations, deaths, new boyfriends, marriages, pregnancies, remarriages, graduations, holidays, Sundays, Saturdays, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Folks coming in from Florida, and then they were handed down to My uncle and MY Mom, and now they are handed down to My generation.
My generation which will carry on the Family Dinner consist of 3 girls, 15 months apart in age, and close enough to be all sisters. Our mothers used to laugh that whenever we got together we couldn't help but giggle all the time. We still do!!! We love being together, We just don't do it enough. Well that has got to change, our children are now all grown, and we really have no excuses any longer.
Well Grandma we need another dinner, my cousin Karen, who just lost her Mother to Breast Cancer in March, has now gotten the dreaded word that she too has BC.
We are blessed to have the family that supports one another, loves one another and is ready with a dinner for one another.
How more blessed can you be?

It was Spring, but it was Summer I wanted:The warm days and the great outdoors.
It was Summer, but it was Fall I wanted:The colorful leaves and the cool, dry air.
It was Fall, but it was Winter I wanted:The beautiful snow and the joy of the holiday season.
It was Winter, but it was Spring I wanted:The warmth and the blossoming of nature.
I was a child, and it was adulthood I wanted:The freedom and the respect.
I was 20, but it was 30 I wanted:To be mature and sophisticated.
I was middle-aged, but it was 20 I wanted:The youth and the free spirit.
I was retired, but it was middle-aged I wanted:The presence of mind without limitations.
My life was over,and I never got what I wanted.
So glad to be done with income taxes, although I do have some extensions to do, for the most part I am finished.
I am totally exhausted and can do nothing but sleep, it is a wonder how the body will work on pure adrenalin until it is not needed any longer and then collapse. Are not we wonderfully made?
Have some thoughts for later, but now gotta rest.

I got out today with Samantha and we tried the trek to the office. Well that was a trip in and of itself. We started out and the roads really were not all that bad, the County has done a wonderful job preparing for the icy conditions. However limbs crossing the highways and power lines down did cause altered directions. We finally got to the office in a round about way, but we were there and the power was on, and you know what, the phone was ringing off the wall. We did some important matters that really needed to be taken care of and then told who ever called we would be leaving early. We also put the phone system on Inclement weather mode. I wish I could figure out a way to do that from home. I bet there is a way but I just have to learn.
Everything here is fine, hubby has gone to work and hopefully will come in tonight, that is if his relief comes in tonight. If not then I guess the morning will bring him home.
My aunt who lives in the high rise here in town called to say that they were without power and everywhere she could see out her 18th floor apartment was dark. So looks like the whole town pretty much is powerless. She is fine, having a slumber party with some of her girlfriends.
Well I made it through this post and no loss. Guess I'm doing good. I hope all of you get your power on quickly and stay warm.

I trust God in everything that happens in my life, I know that he is in control and that with his guidance all is well. Everything will out to his Glory. I don't worry about things because I know God is in control, I think I've got the worrying part down, but then I wonder am I kidding myself?
Right now I feel there is something he is preparing me to do but I just don't know what it is at this time. I think not knowing is part of his training me to wait upon Him. I like to know things and he knows it. God keeps me in the dark to further my dependence on HIM. I also have to learn to listen for his direction. He speaks to me but ever so softly. I find it hard to just sit and listen for God. Prayer is not only me petitioning God but should also involve the listening aspect and I think so often we do not emphasise the listening.
I plan on listening more to God and look for the many ways he speaks to me. It is uncanny how often he nudges me during the day.
Till later - Careful listening.
