I can't believe that it's Thursday already. This week has just flown by. Just two more days of work and I am off for a week. I am so looking forward to getting some rest and doing some things that I just have not had the time to do. Let's see just how much I get done. You all know how that is. Our plans are always much more ambitious than our time or energy allow. At least mine are.
I was in a hurry to get out of the house yesterday morning. I wanted to get to the garage to pay the bill before I went to work. I was going to take the car in today to have the check engine light looked at, but since the new battery, the light has gone out. The mechanics told me to just let it go that it was probably fixed and if it went on again to bring it in. I'm saving some money there (hopefully).
When I came out of the garage I was crossing the street to get to my car. There was a trash truck there so I very carefully walked in front of it looking to see if there was anything coming. This bright green car came speeding down the street the wrong way and almost hit me. It literally missed me by inches. I know God kept me safe and I thanked him right away. People are in such a hurry. When I go around a truck I go slowly so that I don't hit anyone. This guy couldn't have stopped if he tried. Still being here to write this blog for you has made me realize that LIFE IS GOOD!
I was in such a hurry getting out of the house that I hadn't brought anything for lunch. I went out at lunchtime to get something to eat and suddenly realized that I had never taken my medicine that morning. Oops! So I kept driving, went home, took my medicine, stopped at Rite Aid and got something to eat and went back to work. I'm thankful that I live so close to work.
I told my boss yesterday that I am planning to leave the library on December 4th. He was surprised and said he was jealous because he'd like to retire. He is one year younger than me. Well, 11 months almost to the day. Joe and I both feel that this is the right time. Life will be much better for the both of us.
We had Bible study last night. All women showed up. Poor Joe. But it was a good study. We are starting a new series titled "Walking with Christ" and our chapter this week was "Maturing in Christ -- Your Starting Point". Krystal had lots of questions and I hope we helped her. At least we were all telling her the same thing.
Now it's a matter of getting ready for the Saturday evening service. I think it will be good and will post a link to it when it goes online.
I have to get off of here and get ready for work. Just two hours before I have to leave and although it sounds like a lot of time, it goes FAST. Hope you all have a great day.
