Slowly I turn...step by step...inch by inch

It seems I've lived my life tapping my foot and looking at my watch. "Get ON with it!" has been my motto. I can see myself at the Pearly Gates, rolling my eyes as St. Peter struggles to find the right key. I'm not saying this is right, mind you, just the way I'm wound a little too tightly. The world in general, and the church in particular feel mired in bureaucracy and red tape. It's a myopic viewpoint, I admit. Perspective on how others have had to wait on me is curiously and sadly MIA. Admonitions to "take it easy" and "enjoy the journey" fall on deaf ears. Surely this is why God brings me around Mt. Sinai again and again. I suppose He's waiting on me.

Hubs got a call for a second interview! YAY! It will be a phone interview on Friday, 9 am CST for you pray-ers out there. If he passes that one, there will be a face-to-face down in Houston. (MORE WAITING!) Are you sensing a pattern here? NAH!

I have the whole week off starting Monday! My sweet friend Lori is coming to spend the week helping me get my act together. I fear the week will pass all too quickly, as I'll be moving my middle child into the dorm on Monday, and catching up with my sewing and decorating the rest of the week. My youngest starts high school next Thursday, but thankfully we've already done our shopping for school clothes. He can get by with the supplies we have here at the house until we get ALL the lists from ALL the teachers.

I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend at home. HAH! A girl can dream, right?

He'll be in my prayers Friday morning. :-)

Sweet Ladybug friend, know that I will so be praying.

Now this matter of rolling your eyes and jiggling your keys, as I grow older, I understand better, we are simply wired differently.

About the church stuff, I think God gets a little upset when those in high church offices get too caught up in it to remember that the world sees them more easily than it does the rest of us. Don't let them steal your thunder.
