On track and the difference a day can make



I have so enjoyed the past 2-3 days. I have felt like I was "back on track" and while this would not bother a lot of folks, it really bothers me. I do not really know what makes one "fly by the seat of his pants" or one that simply can not do that, unless of course, he is forced to. And, there have certainly been times that I had no other choice, but, rest assured, I did not like it. Perhaps we inherit these oddities. Both my Dad and Mom were "on track" folks, so guess I need not wonder why I am the way I am. Tommy is somewhere in the middle and I suppose that it is a very good thing. It makes for a good balance in our lives. :)

I've was thinking just yesterday about the difference a day can make in our lives. We have all had day(s) that we just could not believe all that took place. Life can be going along as wonderful as can be, and then all of a sudden, it can take a downward spiral. Or, it can be taking that downward spiral and suddenly that spiral goes upwards. I do not know how someone without the Lord as their Savior deals with those days. I have always been able to count on Him to see me through those times and it is such an assurance to me as I go through this life. I do not have to make it on my own (thank goodness), He goes before me each step of the way.

Of course, in thinking back over this past year and all the upward and downward spirals my life has taken, I have felt His hand over me in unbelievable ways. If someone had told me this time last year that I would be motherless this time this year, I would never have believed it. But, in looking back, the Lord was preparing me (without my knowledge) for that time. Her untimely death has given me new insight to each new day and to cherish each and every one of them.

We will celebrate two very important men in my life tomorrow, my husband and Dad. Both deserve much celebration. I am so thankful for my Dad and the very positive influence he has had and continues to have in my life. He is a very special man and I love him dearly. I am thankful that the Lord blessed me with a husband that takes his role as a Father very seriously and has two children that love him dearly as a result. Yes, God has been good to me and to my children.

May you find yourself celebrating life each new day!
