1) "Aaa-chewwwww!" That was the sound of my sneeze!
2) "I feel like praisin', praisin' Him. I feeeeel like praisin', praisin' Him! Praise him in the morning, praise Him all day long. I feel like praisin', praisin' Him." Now THAT was the sound of my song!
Tissue, Robitussin, Advil, throat spray and cups of hot tea containing honey and 4 Halls cough drops have been my constant companions all week. This cold has really tried to get me; has tried to DISTRACT me from my verbalized intention of "finishing the year strong" but I declare that I shall not be defeated! Lol!
I woke up this morning feeling as though I've turned the curve and I feel led to remind all the Martha's today to "Relax, Relate & Release!" That thing, like my cold, is just a distraction honey. Don't trip... it will be OK. Get done what you can & let the rest go. Just let it go & seek the most excellent thing, which is to sit at His feet. It's amazing that in our quest to meet our own self-inflicted goals, we sometimes major in the minor while God is really not impressed one way or the other. Push past the distractions and ask Daddy-God what He really needs from you this 3rd day before Christmas. Is it more shopping for just the right gift? Is it more baking of that last little mouthwatering sweet? Is it more cleaning so that everything shines just so for the house guests that you really wish wouldn't come? Or could it be more time spent with Him so that all else gets into proper perspective? Selah.
