On my way to work this morning I was not feeling it. My head felt like I had slept on it all night and my energy was totally zapped. I called a friend of mine and spoke to her briefly about the way that I felt so she prayed for my safety. I asked God to lead my day and give me what was needed to get through it. After I pulled up at my clients house I grabbed my saw and extension cord and headed to the backyard. The homeowner heard me and came out to say good morning but it didn’t end there. Our conversations were about faith and our comical walks with God. We were laughing and telling of how at times we failed miserably at what we thought God was asking of us. After a bit I had looked at the clock thinking that maybe an hour or so had gone by but was much much later. I arrived at 8:30 and it was now 1:45! I told her I would be back tomorrow and hopefully get some work done. She laughed and said that she had the best time. She also said that it was really hard to find someone who will just sit and LISTEN! Praise God for his blessings on our day and answered prayers. God didn’t want today to be all about me, but all about her and I.
