I am simply amazed at how long it is taking to organized & scan pictures. Between work, end of school year activities, and working on the graduation video I have had no time to post.
Giving honor and glory to God, I have been freaking out from time to time, "how will we get everything done?" It was very stressful at work on top of the stress I have been putting on myself with this graduation and the fact that I did not get to bed until after 1:00 am the night (morning) before, I just sat in my office and started to cry. Then I read a post from Sneaky Momma and God reminded me to be still know that I am God. Later I read a devotion online where God was telling me to invite Him with me in every task I do, I stopped what I was doing and prayed at that very moment. A little later I started to calm down and what seemed impossible became possible.
I thought I was too busy to stop and pray, but then I realized I was too busy NOT to stop and pray . This morning I received the follow email that I thought was cute and wanted to share with you. Have a great and glorious weekend - and remember - invite God in all your tasks.
I'd like to share an email I received this morning:
On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of site, and began dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said on of the boys. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.
Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough he heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He just knew what it was, so he jumped back on his bike and rode off.
Now just around the bend he met an old man with a cane hobbling along. "Come here quick," said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up souls."
The man said "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted though the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me..."the old man whispered, "boy you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if we can see the Lord." Shaking with fear they peered through the fence, yet, they were still unable to see anything.
The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's ll, now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done."
They say the old man made it back to town a full 5 minutes ahead of the boy on the bike!
