He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Well, today started as another one of those days. Nothing seems to go right. Caleb is whiney and fussy. Hannah is in a mood. She's taking forever to do chores and we've just started today's school. She is taking a math placement test to see what level we should order for math next year. She's complaining and belly-aching all the way through it. Guess I need to work harder on the character training. I'm doing laundry, feeding/watering chickens and basic clean-up while getting ready to go to the grocery store since we are out of milk and other basic necessities. I finally put Caleb back in bed and he's sleeping off the whine--hopefully. Praise the Lord! We can't leave for the grocery store until I receive the faxes promised by the guys who are working for David. These faxes are their Workers' Compensation Certificates that prove they are insured so that we can write them a paycheck on Friday. Well, it's been 2 hours now and no faxes. I'm so frustrated. Well, just decided to check the voicemail... and at the exact moment I got a phone call and answered it saying "I cannot talk because waiting on a fax"....that was the precise moment that one was trying to come through. It's been 1 hour and 15 minutes since I missed that call and now the lady is out to lunch and it will be another 45 minutes until she can try again.

It's looking like another day will go by without any milk. There will be lots more gnashing of teeth and whining about it. By the time I get these faxes--1:30 or so, this afternoon, it will be too late to make a trip into town to Wal-Mart. Guess I'll be going to Wal-Mart at about 10:00 p.m. tonight then, since we have to be at Nanny Boo Boo and Poppie's at 4:30.

Ok--I'm not going to fret about it. I will praise the Lord that David is building a house. Praise the Lord for providing a job, finally! Praise the Lord for 4 precious children. Praise the Lord even if things don't go the way I planned them. Best laid plans.....

Isaiah 40:28-31 (New International Version)

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
