I went out with my baby girl and had my hair cut, then I went to the bank and the post office to mail 4 projects I have been working on. One was my tag for Donna Downey's blog book. (See pic at left. The back tells about why I love her blog.) Three were surprises I was asked to participate in from 2Peas. I love that place. I feel so blessed to have so many great friends I've made there.
So I felt a sense of accomplishment and the day is beautiful and my sweet girl has been an angel and I smiled and just felt joy. There's been so little joy in my life lately. I stayed up until 4 am crying and praying. I heard Max Lucado talk about the things Katrina can teach us. I'm going to try and find a written copy of what he said and post it here. It was awesome. Anyway....I decided today to not think about the disaster for one day. I'm giving myself a day off from my grieving for all those people.
I'm going to think about this verse today from Nehemiah 8:10:
Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
