He is Making Perfect Sense...

I must apologize for not writing. The AC went down in our computer room/studio 3 weeks ago today (from the date of this post) and since we live in Florida it became quite uncomfortable to work in here. We are, though, just starting to get into the weather where it is a bit cooler at night so I am able to write now. New AC in within a couple of days now.

A week or so ago I took my husband to work and used the car to run around in Brandon and Tampa. Oh how I surely needed that day!

I saved an e-mail reminder of inspiration to write about but I couldn't find it when it came time to write so I just listened for the inspiration. I’d run around all day, finding myself at Starbucks to relax, write, and kill a couple more hours. Soft lighting, sounds of jazz piano playing softly, super comfy chair, Sugar free Cinnamon Dulce Skinny Latte, and brought in my own gluten free double chocolate biscotti! As I sat and wrote, contemplating my day, I couldn't have asked for more! Just what I needed! One of those times I’ll remember – God gives each one of us what we need, individually! I love that! He doesn't lump us altogether, He treats each and every one of us as an individual. Good thing to remember because it surely helps with curbing a judgmental attitude – what I need, what you need, what they need, may be totally different things. Yet, He loves us enough to meet ALL of OUR NEEDS!

     *Philippians 4:19  "
And my God shall supply all your need according to His        riches in glory by Christ Jesus."

Most of you know of the intense illness I went through. It has now been just over 10 years since I got out of bed. After all I’ve been through, this 53 year old (now a much older looking version of myself) is just starting to learn to love
ME, ME with my early wrinkles and flaws. ME, now knowing that it doesn't take tremendous beauty on the outside!I actually got false eyelashes applied today! I’d chickened out after buying a new pair nearly two years ago. I finally did it today even though it felt like putting a new, bright & shiny hood ornament on an old jalopy!  
It felt so good to ME that I cried! I had to watch crying them off! It was the girliest thing I’d done for ME in years!

As I left Starbucks to go pick up my hubby, the song Miracle Maker came on my CD player – A perfect end to my playday!

He is making perfect sense out of a perfectly senseless, messed up life! He never ceases to amaze me!  (Check out my blog subtitle!)

Spend as much time as possible in God’s word and prayer. As much time as YOU need. Remember, we are ALL individuals. Pray and ask God how much time YOU NEED. I need more than just ½ hour per day to keep my head together, maybe YOU NEED that too, maybe not! Mostly I’ve heard ½ hour which is definitely not enough for me. I spend an hour to even 3 or 4 most days and occasionally I’m unable to spend no time at all but that is not determined by me. It is determined by Him! 
Spend as much time as possible listening to worship music. I have found that with ADD and a wicked past that it helps to keep ME focused. Pray about what YOU NEED!


      *1 John 5:14  "
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we         ask anything according to His will, He hears us."
