When I posted the Proverbs verses I chose for the day over on Marina's Kitchen Table on Facebook, I didn't know how much truth they held for me TODAY.
Proverbs 16:9 rang true TWICE!
Example #1: I'd planned on running a few errands, making a friend tag along so we could spend some time together. After we parted, on my way home, I turned around and headed back to her town - I'd forgotten to pay a bill that was best paid in person. After doing that, I remembered I had a question for our insurance company, and he had suggested stopping in and speaking to someone over the specifics... who WANTS to do that?? (Sorry Al)
Well... I got to the office, and SURPRISE - it's "customer appreciation day" (he does it once a month! - love this guy!!) and as I'm asking my question, the kind woman behind the desk is suggesting I stick around a few minutes and get a free chair massage! REALLY?? Who DOESN'T WANT that?? smile emoticon(I could have had lunch too, but I was still full from brunch with my friend!)
Example #2: I got home, rushing to get to work (because my few hour errand run turned into a few more hours, but included precious time with that dear friend, prayer, and laughter!). I sit down at the kitchen table and pop open the laptop, and go to sign in to all the places I need to sign in to monitor social media for Meet Me in the Meadow... and everything goes well and good, except I can't sign in to my email. My WORK email. ACK. Bummer.
I try a few different browsers, then my phone (which got through on it earlier) and my other laptop in the office... none of them let me even open the website to sign in. OH well. I've tried several other times, but nothing has worked... I trust it will all be there whenever it is that I get into it again... God's got this!
Crank up the worship music, work where I can, and rejoice in the steps He has determined were for me today...
