My Brain is a Ping-Pong Ball

Ever find yourself writing, scribbling random notes, on random sheets of paper?

Or lying in bed and wondering which bill is due when? Did I....oh yeah, oh no....

Thinking, praying the rain will come and the ground will flourish....

Asking aloud, will the garden be enough to sustain us this year?

Farmers are by far, examples of God-fearing people....

Does my husband need to find more work, or is it more important to live simply and cherish our time together?

Should I get Molly a cat to play with, or is the random kitty from next door enough of a buddy for her?

Would banana-coffee muffins be a nice treat tomorrow morning?

How long will it take to publish my next children's book?

Is the coffeemaker ready for the morning? Am I ready for the morning?

Sheesh lo weesh....

But then I remember the quote, "Do not fear tomorrow, God is already there".

And just like that, all my worries melt away.

What once was fuzzy and hazy, is suddenly so very clear. Just like that.

That knowledge is the most reassuring piece of advice I've ever been given. Whenever I complain about things going on at work or worry about the future, my mama always says "Jeremiah 29:11" (For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future).

Well, I'll AMEN that! And yes, let's have a cup of tea together soon. (You're ok with tea, right??) ;)
