We talked in Sunday School yesterday about those special times where you know God is talking to you. Well, have I got a cool story to share today! As you know, we are extremely stressed at our house with the addition of our 15 year old foster daughter. I thought I had 'licked' the nail-biting habit, but it's back with a vengeance. I've never felt more trapped in my own house. I often feel like I want to crawl out of my skin.
With that as a backdrop, I'm driving to work today listening to music on two different Christian radio stations. I have no patience for talk or commercials, so I'm constantly flipping between the stations. Also, there are certain places on my trip where I only have reception for one station. I was listening to the song 'Love the Lord thy God' (It's Matthew 22:37 set to music). 'Love the Lord thy God with all your heart, with all you soul, with all your mind, with all your strength'. I started to lose the one station so I switched over to the other one and I heard the same song, so I switched back and it was REALLY the same song, just a little re-wound on the 2nd station. I guess God wanted me to get a GOOD listen to the song. I almost cried, it was just a reminder of priorities in the midst of our struggles. How cool is that??!!!
Meanwhile, Sumana is surviving with a stressed-out mom, but a lot is falling through the cracks. She really is not exercising like she needs to and we still have the Wii in the box! She is dying for Indian food, so we may have to make a trip to Rochester next week. We're not 'scheduled' to go to Rochester til mid-June, so that's a ways away. We didn't have time last week between appointments, so a special trip might be warranted! Also, we STILL haven't caught up with our friends Giana and Dana. We'll keep you posted on Sumana's plans!
