Jon says I only like immediate surprises, as in, "Hey, Ames, look, I've got a surprise, here it is!" and not "Hey, Ames, in two weeks from now, I have a surprise for you."
This morning I realized something about myself. If there is a problem, I go after it. I fix it. I ask "excuse me, can I please speak to the manager?" or something. Why do I insist on "doing" things?
This morning, my Bible study had me look at "resting" in God. I had plans to be painting the room that would be the office for the day. The Christian Radio station played a program about "resting". With lots of time by myself and paint fumes, I was very convicted at my sin of impatience and lack of trust and surrender. I finally surrendered, by the Grace of God, I just felt restful. Restored to peace.
I just took a break from painting because I was parched and popped by my e-mail.
We have a court date! Our court date is set for March 1st. WHAT?!? I KNOW!!!
I am so humbled. Feel so foolish. To God be the Glory.
