Today was beautiful. Sunny, low humidity and 83 degrees! And no pollen yet. Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with a clogged head and a very, very sore throat. And I leave for Honduras in four days! I didn’t get much chance to enjoy the day as I wasn’t feeling well.
Tonight we had our “packing party” at church to pack all our suitcases and get them weighed. We had a lot of donations of games, coloring books, etc. to take to the hospital so we had to pack all those up also. Kevin managed to get most of them into one suitcase. He’s one efficient packer! Michael does well at that also. Must be a guy thing!
I stopped at Wal-Mart on the way home to pick up the last little things I need. When I went to Honduras in October, I took way too much stuff. I’ve really cut back but I did need a few little travel items. I also picked up a package of “breath rite” strips. I want to see if they will help me to sleep better tonight. I’ve heard a lot of good things about them so I wanted to try them for myself. I also bought myself a new pair of pajamas. That’s a treat for me. 🙂
Tonight we had homemade pizzas. They were good. I make the dough in my bread machine then add sauce and toppings. Yum!
As I was driving to church tonight, I was listening to the Bible. One of the passages was Psalm 62. What a wonderful Psalm to remind us to rest in God. Verses 5-8 say:
Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
My salvation and my honor depend on God; He is my mighty rock, my refuge.
Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge. Selah
I love that little word “selah” which means (paraphrasing) “rest a minute, meditate on this”. Yes, I can meditate on the truth that God is my refuge. He is my rock and my salvation. Amen!!
