No work done!!!
A busy day yesterday and no work finished. I had meditations at 6:00 AM, went out with Jerry for breakfast, went to Mark L for lunch and had men's group over at 3:15 and served soup. No work was to be done for the day--not a big deal!
Had a dentist appt at 8:30 this morning and now will meet someone for lunch in Burnsville at noon.
I just got a call from Cara Dal Pra who is in Rockford IL and she asked if her brother could stay here Thursday-Sunday so that should be nice. Cara is coming to get some things as she is taking a semester off of school to be home and help with the family business.
I don't have a lot to say today. I did think that this week would be a time I could start to get a few more things done around here but now it seems that most of my time is filled up with coming and going.
I still am and perhaps will be in the middle of many decisions. It is oh so difficult for me to decide what to keep and what to give or get rid of in the house. So many things are "Gail" and that is difficult. I will pick up something and know that Gail had something in mind for that. But what would I do with it. Well the answer is often I would do nothing with it but is it worthy to be kept or not??? I really do want to declutter my house, my life and my garage. It seems to me that to live a more simply life and focus on people would be a good and worthy thing to do. I do think that is the direction God is leading. I have also thought much about doing some things that I have never been able to do. The idea of "grabbing the moment" and living it for God and for family is very appealing. For me the decision comes when there is a gray area of self vs others vs God. I do not want to be selfish but I do think God is saying to me that life is about serving, loving, giving and being and within that structure there is also a place for self enjoyment. As I say that I still am a bit concerned that there is too much of "self" in my thoughts and actions.
I need to get somethings ready before I head to Burnsville.
