Day 11 – Monday (9/03/18)

Well fellow blog readers, today was one of those days that I like to call “a lazy day”.  I don’t want you to think that this is something new that has happened since/because of my current circumstances.  This is something that goes back many many years.  Some days… I just feel lazy.  I’m not sure what triggers it.  I’m not sure if a lazy day can be scheduled or predicted.  They just… happen, and today was one of them.

I can sum up all the events of my day in just a few sentences.  We woke up.  We dropped the kid’s projects off at the fair grounds (the state fair starts this Friday, 9/7).  We went to my in-laws for lunch.  We came home and I took about a 3 hour nap.  We may go to the park in a bit to let the kids run off some energy.  There you have it… lazy day.

I’m hoping that tomorrow’s blog will be full of useful information from the doctors, and that I will have some finalized test results to share.  I obviously can’t promise “a big day”, but I can hope!  If God wants it to be tomorrow, it will be tomorrow.  Stay tuned!

Dear heavenly Father, thank You for “lazy days”.  In Genesis 2:2-3, it says “and on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.  Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”  Now I know that Your commandment to us regarding the Sabbath (Exodus 20:8-10a “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.  Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God.  In it you shall do no work…”) does not really fall in line with my lazy day concept directly.  However, it does show that rest is important as well as taking one day a week to reflect and do nothing but seek You.  Please help us to obey this commandment, even though society today says we are too busy to comply.  Thank You for giving me the opportunity to rest today.  I continue to pray for Your will tomorrow concerning test results, and whether they will be accurate and ready.  Please be with everyone as they head back to work and school tomorrow.  Please keep everyone safe.  Amen.
