That day was yesterday around here and I'm not sure what started it all. I'm thinking it may have had to do with my failing to prioritize correctly and skipping my quiet time with God ... which come to speak of it ... I'm not off to the best start this morning either.
But after a 10:30pm to 2:30am trip to W@lmart to refocus myself and lose my thoughts in dodging the aisles around stockmen and boxes and actually getting to read a label and consciously consider what I was putting in my cart ... it was heavenly bliss--(Not to mention the DQ Cappacino-Heath Blizzarrd that I stopped for prior to the only other store open at that hour in these parts)--I think I've recovered.

"You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.
4 "You're blessed when you feel you've lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.
5 "You're blessed when you're content with just who you are—no more, no less. That's the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can't be bought."--Matthew 5 (The Message translation)
May you live today in the knowledge of just how blessed you really are.
