…I must have done something good!

Today was a good day for me. I knew it was going to be, when I read the book of Revelation during my quiet time this morning and it made sense to me – what?! I’m not going to pretend that I am not one of those people for whom Revelation has remained pretty obscure, no matter how many times I’ve read it. My husband has even done a teaching on it and I promise I paid attention, honest! But this morning, I was able to see beyond the – shall we say – unusual creatures described in it, to what John was trying to show us. I’ll also admit here (since I’m baring my soul and all) that I gave an involuntary groan when I turned the page after Jude and realized that the next and last book was Revelation. But I made up my mind a loooong time ago that if it’s important enough to be included in the scriptures, then it’s important enough to read, so I stopped skipping books like Obadiah, Nahum and the likes.

Anyway, I got up from my study this morning knowing it was going to be a good day. It was confirmed when I turned on the AC in my car and it was working! Yes, my precious husband took it in yesterday and had it fixed. I could not have been a pretty sight to behold every day, coming home greasy, melting, with “windswept” hair and a harried look on my face. So I was able to listen to CeCe on my 30-minute commute (each way) to and from work without having to turn up the volume in order to hear her above the wind and traffic (don’t worry, I turned it down at stop lights – I can’t stand it when people are inconsiderate of others with their music).

Then I was so busy at work today that by the time I looked at the clock, it was almost time to go home! What’s more, there’s a long weekend just ahead – thank God for labor day! – and I get to babysit overnight the most gorgeous and best-behaved baby in the world. Then I walked into my house to see the contents of my pantry out on the counters and no husband in sight. Halleluyah! You see, I knew this meant that Joseph had found a moment to fix the shelves that had collapsed under the weight of flours, sugar and such, and he had gone to Home Depot to get materials he needed to fix the problem. He would never leave a mess unless there was a good reason for it, or…nah, he’d never leave a mess, period.

So that was my day today. Like Maria in the Sound of Music, I felt like breaking into song…”So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good!” Hey, it doesn’t take much to make me happy. Peace out!

    Wow, you’re right! It’s like heaven breathed on you. I love it when God answers prayers that we forgot to make!

    P.S. Hmmmm, what baby could that be???

    As for the baby, you wouldn’t know her! (LOL!) 😉
