For I will go to the altar of God

Have any of you ever noticed that right before a church meeting for which you have been greatly anticipating and anxiously awaiting and praying for a blessing that the Devil seems to know how to attack you best and wear you down?

Yeah, he's been on my case this week sending me stress factor after stress factor.

But, I'm going to the altar of God tomorrow. HIS holy mountain. For I will yet praise HIM. My Saviour, and my God.

And THAT makes me happy in the midst of a crazy week. Can't wait to see you all there.

Sounds like...

I love it when I'm vacuuming and all of a sudden I hear, "Flllpppppppttthhhhhhhh."

You know the sound I'm talking about. The sound of a vacuum taking in chip crumbs, or tidbits of cereal, or whatever else lies around your floor that you may or may not be aware of until that sound is made.

It makes me feel productive. And happy. Because the sound of dust is boring.

Driving Lesson #112

When did you learn that when a traffic light is out it automatically becomes a 4-way stop??? Hmmm??? Because today, it would seem that nobody knew.

I learned sometime around the age of 19 or 20. We went to Memphis for a church meeting, and a tornado had just come through the town the night before. Traffic lights were out everywhere. I must confess, I didn't know I was supposed to stop. But, I learned quickly! (On a side note, that is also the trip where I dodged a wheelbarrow - yes, a wheelbarrow, on Hwy. 78, now Corridor X. It was quite an adventurous trip.)

This morning, I thought I was going to get ran over as I stopped at the out-of-commission-due-to-the-storms red light on Hwy. 280. People just kept flying by. And, I was looking at the poor people at the stores to my left who had no idea how to cross 3 lanes to the opposite side of traffic. Now, one or two people accidentally forgetting or not knowing, I could understand. But, everybody?
