My new hair
I said, I felt like Queen for a Day for a few minutes. I have to confess, as I went through the house, locking the doors and turning off lights I did feel a little scared. This house is a bit isolated and it is very dark at night. Being from the city, there is always the thought that someone scary is lurking in the dark, waiting to pounce. Hearing a story about a co-worker being acosted at a hotel earlier in the day didn't help things, I'm sure.
I prayed myself to sleep, but seems to sleep less restfully. Normally, my covers are pretty neat in the morning and I just have to flip them back to make the bed. This morning, they were all crooked and twisted. Well...at least I don't feel tired.
I am hoping to head home tonight and sleep in my bed for the first time in over 3 weeks. Not sure how Rita is going to effect those plans. This morning's forcast shows a considerable curve to the north, which puts it much closer to us. The engineers at the office say that a 6" rainfall could produce similar flooding as Katrina, which wouldn't be good. But, in God's economy it would be good...it has to be good.
Sunday, my pastor said something like this "We can't hope for things to go back to the way they were. If things were good they way they were, Katrina would never have happened." I am praying that I can keep that set in my mind...change is required.
Lord make me willing and help me rejoice no matter what that looks like for me.
