“In the middle” of it all you have to do is praise by Isaac Carree… what an awesome song. Often, overwhelmed by the number of responsibilities, trials and tribulations set before me, its songs like this that remind me that all I have to do is praise him and whatever it is will pass ….
If you’ve been watching the Atlanta, Ga news, we had some very severe weather, which isn’t the norm in the south, so we were a little ill-prepared. Basically, we had a major shutdown as a result. The roads were snowed over, companies, schools ..closed! Shut down… And while this happens everywhere, its very different when it happens here in Georgia because its so rare.
First issue is a a biggun’, my employer was open and operating but, my daughters daycare was closed, tight (issue number one). When you don’t have a support system near its times like today that make things seem impossible, but you know what I made a way out of no way. I didn’t have to take a vacation day to stay home with my child because I was blessed with a job that afforded me an option to work from home….. what a blessing because last year this time that was a different case. And while I had the opportunity to work from home, imagine how creative I had to be with a high energy 2-yr old in an apartment (laughs) diving off sofas, ottomans, climbing up bar stools, writing on her hands and me too, crawling in my lap, sticking something gummy on my arm, refusing lunch but begging for cookies and fruit roll ups, and running off of fumes with no nap. Yes, its funny but it wasn’t about 9 hours ago….
Second and third issues surround family and I will leave that at enough said. I was tested quite a bit today spiritually, emotionally, personally and professionally, nevertheless it was allllll good! I am blessed and highly favored… I say it repeatedly and confidently…. and hope that you remember God favors and loves you and I do too!
