It's Only Wednesday

The funny thing about change is that I don't get to control it. A program friend and I had a good time laughing at ourselves one day because we agreed that asking God for a change has a caveat, as in, please God, don't embarrass me or bankrupt me or make me move or put me in a funky relationship. In other words, please give it to me in a palatable manner which I can understand. And appreciate. In my own time.

One messy thing that I ask for is to feel my feelings. So, they come out sometimes with force and surprise to me and others. This morning at the close of a meeting I was in the best of moods when I realize that my 'cheat sheets' were gone from under the monitor that I usually use. They were phone #s for different specialists that we only use occasionally, instructions on how to set some things up-handy things when on the computer, less handy put away in a desk drawer down the hall. I just about hit the roof. Went from zero to 110 mph in a millisecond.

It's the ferocity of my reaction that surprises me. I'm still feeling the confusion of it as I sit at home, hours afterwards.

What's good about today is that I don't have to figure anything out but I always have the chance to Trust God.


  1. Gosh this happens to me - when I least expect it - something is misplaced and wham I am zero to 60 flat... in no time.

    It is true that first paragraph - I think that is the first time I have read it or heard it put in such a way - as to get it.

  2. Yessss, carol. IF I can let God do the figuring (IF!) life is so much simpler--easier.

  3. That's like asking God to teach you humility - be careful what you ask for.

  4. Carol, God is the ultimate one that I trust. People will let me down anytime but God never does.

  5. such an honest & self aware post today!
