Me: God. May I ask you a question?
Me: Promise you won't get mad?
God: I promise.
Me: Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do you mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late.
Me: My car took forever to start.
Me: At lunch they made my sandwich wrong, and I had to wait.
Me: On the way home, my phone went dead just as I picked up a call.
Me: And on top of all that, when I got home I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?
God: Well, let me see. The Death Angel was at your bed this morning, and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): Oh...
GOD: I didn't let your car start, because there was a drunk driver on your route that would have hit you if you were on the road.
Me (ashamed) Oh...
God: The person who made your first sandwich today was sick, and I didn't want you to catch what he has. I knew you couldn't afford to miss work.
Me (embarrassed): Okay...
God: Your phone went dead because the person who was calling was going to give false witness about what you said during that call. I didn't even let you talk to them so that you would be covered.
Me (softly): I see, God.
God: Oh, and that foot massager had a short that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.
Me: I'm sorry, God.
God: Don't be sorry, just learn to trust me in all things, the good and the bad.
Me: I will trust you.
God: And don't doubt that MY plan for your day is always better than your plan.
Me: I won't, God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.
God: You're welcome, child. It was just another day being your God, and I love looking after my children.
Keep this going if you believe in HIM. You never know who needs to receive this message.

The days in the summer have been sooooooo hot here in Nashville! Have not had as many people having events outside and my customers are not the only ones complaining about the heat!
Taking the dogs on their walks during the sunny period of the day is not the best idea......I found that out.......they end up trying to walk in the grass only, and I can't blame them. With the sun bearing directly down on the pavement you could probably fry dinner on the driveway and bake your Alaska without a match! I'm not the earliest of risers and that would be an answer, to wake up early and take them before the sun has it's way with the neighborhood. But for the time being I have found an answer that the dogs love !!
MIDNIGHT.........have the dogs ready and go out somewhere around midnight! One can actually think and process all of your thoughts for the day AND have peace and quiet while your dogs have the same. NO, your dogs will have more than peace and quiet, they will love the fact that no cars impede your way and no other dogs are barking or jumping to protect their territory etc...
While the weather will permit, I think this has become a habit for me, Sadie and Max. Come eleven o'clock or so they wake up and get up knowing that the walk is not far away! All they have to do is hear me pull my keys off the desk and they are standing at attention, waiting for leashes. Need a little peaceful, rest time? I highly recommend it !! and Sadie and Max do too!
Have an event and need balloon animals? Simple, quick balloon animals may save the day!
