It was like medicine to me. mm
I was fretting about this week. We have board meeting in OKC (I'm there (here) now.) Then up to 39 folks are coming for a 3-day family reunion at our house this weekend.
My mind was going crazy. 'What if someone goes into my pantry and sees how really messy I really am?' 'And our towels look really dingy to me now.''And here I go again, getting take-out and not doing all the homecooking that so-and-so and so-and-so would do.' 'And what if the Baymont Inn I reserved for everybody isn't as good as I thought?' And on and on and on.
I was getting ridiculous and Sam's gently telling me I needed to 'shut out the whole world' was what I needed.
These precious folks that are coming into town (from Wisconsin, Minnesota, Tennessee, Alabama, New Mexico, Iowa, and Texas) are what they are - the most nonjudgmental people you'd ever meet. They are so fun. And so very wonderful. Well, it's no wonder that we want to get together every 2 years. Wow, writing all this makes me think: I CAN'T WAIT TILL THIS WEEKEND!
And my song this week will be (is)...
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
