On your mark, GET SET, go!

Today is a get set day.


I love "normal" days although I have few of them.

The majority of days contain things I never expected.

I have learned that when God is getting ready to do something supernatural in or through me, He gives me a quiet day at the house to"get set" for what is to come.  I didn't expect just HOW He accomplished that this time.

On my way to North Carolina last weekend, my plane was this itty bitty one that was really packed, ever seat filled.  Sitting next to me in the next to last row was a man who hacked, coughed and dripped from his nose the whole time.  He apologized but what could be done?  Nothing really, although I did wash my hands real good when I got to Raleigh. Hand washing doesn't solve everything although I'm sure it helps.  I was fine the whole time I was in NC, thank the Lord, but as soon as I got back I started to feel stranger than normal. :)  By Sunday night I had a full blown cold.

My husband has heard me blow my nose at least 42,362 times the past three days and finally said, "Deanna, you really need to be at your best in North Carolina this coming weekend and I'm thinking one way to do that is for you to stay home Wednesday and rest.  You need it.  Let me handle things."

He rarely says that (and the times for me to ever miss a work day or church can almost be counted on one hand) but what a blessing today is.  I normally preach every Wednesday night at our church.  This week they'll be blessed to hear him. 

I'm getting "set"!  Ladies of North Carolina, get ready!  I'm getting set and tomorrow morning, I'm GOING and we're going to have us a time!

Well done for listening to your hubbies advice and staying at home to rest! We all need to do that a little more often!

I hope the nose blowing sessions have lessened?! :)
