Another long weekend

Another long weekend in store and I must really make the most of it. The time just seems to be eaten up so quickly these days but I must keep on track with my quest of getting organized.
Lord, thank You for another chance and another chance and another chance, Amen.

Thank You for tennis

We went to the tennis courts today and managed to hit some balls and do some reading too. Much needed rethinking in my financial affairs. Lord, I need to surrender my life to You minute by minute so that I do not get overwhelmed or worried about the state of affairs.
Lord, in Your mercy, hear my prayers, Amen.

Planned neglect

I have been doing a lot of tidying up though it doesn't look like it and I think I am letting it get the better of me, this housework business. I must practise what I remember reading many years ago: planned neglect where one gives one's art the much-needed attention before tackling the mundane jobs. I know it, but haven't put into into practice as much as I should at all.

Lord, thank You for another day to learn new things and above all to put them into practice.
Lord, thank You for today, Amen.

Flowing thoughts like one master, Dick Francis

Today I picked up a Dick Francis novel after a long time and I had even forgotten the story and the characters completely which is very strange for me. He is one of the authors whose work I really, really enjoy reading and learning from and his books always inspire me.

I really want to get back into writing other things apart from entries in my journal and on this blog. I would like to get back to coming to sit at the computer and write freely like I used to. Lord, help me with this and help me get back to getting the ideas flowing and writing even if I think it has been done before.

And help me above all not to get distracted by the seeming chaos and confusion around me. I will remain as focused as can be to see Your Word come to pass in my life.

Lord, thank You for answered prayer, Amen. And thank You for today, Amen.

FInally, it is done!

Finally, I have finished off a little job that I have put off for years now. Not proud of myself at all but mighty relieved to have been finished with that and it feels like a weight off me. The new lady who is going to handle this job is an accountant so she will have an easier time of it than I have.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.

God is good

God is good to me and I am grateful for every opportunity He brings me to start afresh.
Thank You, Lord for today, Amen.
