Deadlines do that–make me focus. Surgery has been scheduled–4 weeks from today!
I am grateful–and overloaded with details–but they are all getting dealt with, swiftly!
Nothing like knowing you will be knocked out on pain meds and not able to drive for maybe a month!
Time to stock the freezer with good food to warm up quickly.
Time to move the muscles, prepping for those weeks of post-op rehab.
Time to stop and breathe too.
Today I thank the Lord that there are two whole weeks yet before our long, Labor Day Weekend events.
Also, that there are plenty of hours in today to do🎶/be😏 what God calls me to today.
Good to live right now, right here.

Today I was skimming down some Old Testament begats and found this astounding reality:
A woman built three cities way back in very ancient times–when women weren’t exactly “liberated” at all–except maybe Sheerah!
I also tracked down a great sermon on this topic–by a Baptist woman with a Ph.D. (Thank you, Dr. Gafney!)
That sermon told me that these particular three ancient cities endured for an entire millenium. Sheerah built on solid ground.
I so want to do that.

Thank you, blog readers, for tolerating this temporary aside.
Light-drenched, I rise to coffee and cereal.
Husband left note–I overslept.
Not quite awake, I reach for promises.
They are all still here.
Like the sun.
I am glad.
Off the edge,
Fly on hope, faith, love–
And plain hard work.
Not the first time.
But, mostly excitement.
Be real, present.
Accept, learn, listen, give.
