Well, I have been trying to say, "Yes, Lord, what are we going to do today." as soon as I get up in the mornings. But honestly, I haven't been feeling it lately. I have been a little sick (nothing major just not 100%). Plus there has been a lot of things going on in this sleepy little town that have my brain cells doing overtime. . . . anyway.
Sometimes I'm almost to the ball field (on the way to town from my house, which is about 1/2 way) before I remember that I am working for God today and I need to report for duty.
So this morning I got up and got ready, and put my chili for my grand-daughter in the car and promptly started thinking about all the great things I would be able to get done today. I had some documentation to write and all day to write it . . . BUT NO.
God had other plans for me today.
As soon as I got out of my morning meeting, ready to hit the keyboard with a fury . . . is when my oldest daughter called to say her dad had been airlifted to Louisville and was in the hospital after having a heart-attack. AND that my 2nd oldest Tootsie, was really upset. Tootsie is a "daddy's girl" from way back and even though she is 23 now it doesn't matter . . .once you are "daddy's little girl" well it never changes.
My morning was spent praying for someone who, I admit, is not at the top of my list of favorite people. Praying that doctors would be able to fix his blown artery and sew him back together. Praying that my daughters would not have to make a mad dash to Kentucky in an ice storm to bury their father. Praying that his mother would not have to bury her son just a year after she buried her husband.
So . . . . you just never know. What you thought you would never do, and what you thought you would spend your day doing sometimes God has other plans.
UPDATE: Their father made it through surgery, but is still in need of prayers, he will have a long road to recovery ahead of him.
