By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life. - Proverbs 22:4

I'm tired. Dog-tired. Drained. Every now and then I go through this. Who knew that marketing was such a big part of writing? It's exhausting!

I think I need a break. Perhaps God is working on getting my attention.  I'm going to work on some of my devotions for a while. I need to get back to the reason I started writing to begin with, and let God take care of the promotion. And you know what's funny? It's doubtful anyone will even notice I'm gone. For all my promotion, I'm like a raft in the ocean. A minnow in the sea. A grain of sand on the beach. And that's okay. I know God knows me, where I am, and even my thoughts and the desires of my heart. And that means everything.

Many are the plans in a person’s heart,
   but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails. - Proverbs 19:21 niv

Good Monday! Got up bright and early this morning ready to start my day and my Internet wouldn't work. Scree-e-e-ch! That will put a crimp in your plans, won't it? I'm not on the web much on Sundays, so I look forward to catching up with everyone first thing Monday Morning.

I decided a big cup of coffee was in order before I called the cable company, and while I poured that first cup, it was like the Holy Spirit whispered to me and said, "God doesn't need the Internet to talk with you for a while."

That's right! I know that, of course, but sometimes in my haste to 'get things done,' I forget. I had a nice time with Jesus. An even BETTER way to start my day. No, the BEST!

And obviously, I figured out what was wrong. Well, I guess I should say - I did the first thing any computer-savvy person does - unplugged everything and restarted it, and voila! I'm back online. Maybe God had plans for me this morning, too!
