"Sitting at His Feet"

Here I am winding down to the last two days before surgery and I'm feeling like it's crunch time. I was doing alright until I spent over 1 1/2 hours on the phone with two separate customer service people and never did get one of my issues resolved. I had to get off the phone before I lost it. They were so incompetent and this wasn't the first time. Where's integrity anymore? SCREAM!  This has really eaten up a big chunk of my day and you know, I had my plans. I still have things to do...laundry, clean bathroom, bathe dog, da, da, da, da, da. I just want to get a big, iced caramel macchiato and sit down, turn on my worship music and be still.

So, you know what I did? I stopped, got in my car and headed to Starbucks. Everything else is on hold and I'm about to put on my worship music and bask in the presence of the Lord at His feet. I have to find my focus and peace, and it's only found in Him. I'm feeling better already.

I don't know if the dog will get bathed tonight or not. I'm sure Jeff will help me with some of the other stuff but for now I'm "choosing what is better."

Luke 10:38-42 - As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, He came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to Him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord's feet listening to what He said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to Him and asked, "Lord, don't you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!" "Martha, Martha," the Lord answered, "you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her."

  1. I check on you every day, Sista.
    I'm off Wednesday. I'll be thinking of you & praying. It will be over soon. The first couple days will be a blur & then you'll come around.
    I did add Jeff as a 'friend' on FB. Please tell him to check in there & just a small note of how you are will be nice.
    Just keep remaining in His arms & you'll soon be putting all this behind you. xox

  2. You're such a sweetie and you know I love ya girlfriend. I can't thank you enough for checking in and all your kind words and prayers; it helps so much. Is your appointment still on hold until the 30th? Then when is your final surgery? I've been thinking of you too. Blessings.
