What A Day I Had!

This was just one of those days. . . I had a HUGE school project that I had planned on getting done … but my home computer has operating system problems. Then there were the financial concerns that keep the gears grinding in my problem-solving brain. After finding the hole in the fence through which the dog snuck out for a brief excursion, I finally got out of the house, although later than I wanted. I was somewhat surprised that the computer lab at the college was empty when I arrived. Then I found out why. Apparently, about half an hour before I arrived there was a big power surge that took out the internet network, the boiler wasn’t working and I think the air circulation was also temporarily down. WOW! At least those lights didn’t all go down as I logged onto the computer or else I just might have taken it personally. So I had to go back home to endure the ever-spinning circle thing as I impatiently waited for dial up page turns. There were numerous interruptions, phone calls and unexpected events that seemed to swallow up the time in chunks. It was one of those days where I felt like I’d been working forever and not getting much done. You know, the hours seemed to drag with the amount of effort I put in, yet the time flew when it came to evaluating how much more I had NOT gotten finished. I DID make good progress on my school project, but not as much as I’d planned. That was oh, so disappointing. Yet, as I write this blog before retiring for the night… er… morning, I have the verse from Jeremiah reverberating in my head . “I know the plans I have for you,” God had control all the while. It was my focusing on my own timeline that was the source of the frustration.
Now, I am going to trust that same God to protect me from beating myself up for not getting that project into my teacher before I get to sleep. Hopefully, He will reward me with a sound couple hours of sleep that will prepare me for a better tomorrow. One in which I have wisely already surrendered to His Lordship. Peace to you.

Life’s Journey – Ellen’s Blog

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
Psalm 119:105 (New International Version)

Okay, today I am going to embark on a new journey into the world of blogging. It’s not that I am any more of a deep thinker than most people, but I do have some thoughts that are worthwhile. Besides, I believe it will help cement what I am learning. At the same time, it may actually be of some benefit to someone else who might be reading.

So If you would like… please join me on the journey!
