SO much going on, so little time!

Hi, everyone! I'm sorry I've been kind of MIA this week; between the show, and having a houseful of family, I'm a bit busy this week.

Aren't they adorable? These are my nieces and nephew; they are moving from a base in Georgia to one in Oklahoma, and are visiting for a few days. I am so blessed to get a little time with them; we don't get much because of their schedules and our schedules. One of my nieces and my brother-in-law are finishing moving chores, and won't be here until tomorrow night. Phew, what a week it's been - this weekend is a tech weekend, which means painting, sawing, and lots of construction work for the show.

We'll get back to our regular week next week. For today, I want to leave you with this - it arrived in my email box, and blessed me. I hope it does the same for you. :) GOD BLESS YOU, dear one!!!!!!!!!! Please keep leaving comments; Karen, I have them emailed directly to my email, so I DO read them all. Sometimes I just don't have a chance to respond before life takes over. :D

Things That Help Each Day

1. Faith is the ability to not panic.

2. If you worry, you didn't pray. If you prayed, don't worry.

3. As a child of God, prayer is like calling home every day.

4. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

5. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.

6. Do the math. Count your blessings.

7. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.

8. Dear God: I have a problem. It's me.

9. Silence is often misinterpreted, but never misquoted.

10. Laugh every day - it's like inner jogging.

11. The most important things in your home are God, then the other people.

12. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional. (Preach it!)

13. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open. Come on in.

14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.

15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.

16. We do not remember days but moments. Life moves too fast so enjoy your precious moments.

17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it; otherwise it's just hearsay.

18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.

19. Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.

20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting. Leave gentle fingerprints on the soul of another for the angels to read. I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.

This list is really awesome. Taken as a whole, they are too much to absorb. Each one deserves meditation.

Enjoyed the thoughts for the day as well!
