Life At Warp Speed

Wow! These last 2 days have been crazy! Our oldest daughter who just recently graduated from nursing school and landed a full-time job purchased her first "new to her" car yesterday. It is a beautiful new car and we are so happy that she finally has a "nice" car. She has literally worn out her other car, but PTL it got her through college!

She actually lives almost 2 hours away from us and due to some miscommunication, I ended up driving her younger sister up there thinking that the plan was for us to spend the night there. That didn't work out so we drove back home after a very hurried shopping time and then discovered that the title to the "old" car was needed by our daughter so back we went early this morning. I did get to take advantage of the 20% off sale that Mardel's was having on homeschool materials before we had to hurry back home though.

Before leaving this morning, I took a minute to pull out a devotional book and read what was for today's date. The title was "One Day at a Time". Felt appropriate to me. The scripture was from 2 Samuel 22:3 and it says: "My God, my Rock, in Him will I take refuge; my Shield and the Horn of my salvation; my Stronghold and my Refuge, my Savior--You save me from violence.

Life feels like it comes at me most of the time at warp speed, but I love how God never fails to show me that no matter what comes my way or how fast it comes at me, He is the one who shields me and protects me and I can always find a refuge in Him.
