Trust in the Lord

I bet I don't even have to say it, but I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday. In fact, I don't think that tomorrow could possibly get here fast enough. More importantly, I don't think that 4:00 tomorrow could get here fast enough.

This has been one tough week. I've prayed a lot. I've prayed for acceptance of those things which I can't change and know that they are the way they are for a reason that may be unknown to me. I've prayed for wisdom to know that while there are some things I need to accept, there are other things that I do need to change and that with this wisdom I can do it. I've prayed for strength to rise to the challenges that may lay ahead so that I can face and conquer them. I have prayed that I remember to trust in the Lord, for through him all things are possible. But mostly, I've prayed for patience to not strangle small children that have decided school is out... even though we have 5 days left together.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.

Proverbs 3, 5-6

On my way to work I was listening to the radio (after I had already continued listening to the Doodlebops and Shrek for a good 10 minutes after dropping Chase off) and a commercial came on that went something like this, "China and crystal are out... a responsible bride now registers and Mobile and Exxon." Sometimes you just have to laugh.
