I drove safely today....

I'm so thankful I didn't meet any police officers today. I safely made it downtown to attend a 2hr class on evaluating productivity in my hospital dept. Exciting!!!! you say. Not so much but I do understand more than I did before I took the class. More fun today was the Charge nurse meeting I attended and best of all the Bible study group I attended with my husband in the evening. Wow... what a full day. I'm not used to waking at 645 am and running till 9pm.Between the Class and my preparation meeting for the charge nurse meeting I was trying to accomplish a personal goal. My 14 yr old wanted a new Bible.Awesome you say... I never imagined it would be so challenging to find a Compact Bible with a filigree design, after stops at two Bible book stores I tried to get smart and called two more stores from my cell as I drove back to the hospital. I finally reached a very helpful person at my local Bible book store. She didn't have the Bible I wanted either but was willing to order it and it would arrive next Tues. Yea !!! success. One goal accomplished. The sun came out today just long enough for me to get my sunglasses out and imagine I looked really cool cruising in my shades. OK sorry I actually get pleasure out of thinking I look cool in my car. Pretty lame huh. So it was good the discussion in Bible study was about how all we have belongs to God and we are just in trusted with what ever we have to pass it along for His purpose. I was reminded again what a relief it is when I realize how this life is not mine to direct and manage. Ive given my life to Him and what ever stuff He entrusts to me is His too. What a relief. So I don't need to worry. God says to me

Matthew 6:30-32 (New Living Translation)
30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?

31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs.
my blessing for today is the fact my 14yr old is asking for a new Bible so she can pursue a relationship with God of her own. (really no better blessing than this)and His infinite care for me
