Beach plans

Hubbs, Tink and I are going to the beach in August. Hubbs talked to his twin sister and she decided she would like to go with us. This is going to be fun! Seriously. I'm not be sarcastic this time.

Hubbs' twin is a blast. She has lived out of town for the last several years and has never gotten to know Tink very well. I think this will be good for all of us.

I have already found a condo that will let us bring Maggie May and Bocephus along. I have no idea why NO ONE will watch them for us. Oh well. Some doggie tranquilizers and we are all set for a week of fun at the beach.

I am getting excited already!

Why didn't I figure this out sooner?

A couple of week ago at church a question was asked. I have been thinking a lot about it since then.

"When we kneel at the alter to pray we bring all of our "baggage" with us and pray that God will take it and carry it for us. But then, when we get up to walk away we pick the baggage up and carry it back home with us. Why don't we leave it there for God to carry?"

I am guilty of this. I pray and pray that God will take my baggage and carry it for me. Then I walk away, dragging it all behind me. I prayed right then that God would help me let it all go, help me learn how to let him carry it for me.

I am feeling much better these days. I think this is something I should have learned a long time ago.
