Update on the day!

Hey, all. In case you were wondering, today was pretty fantastic. It was about 70 all day. The one downside is that we were supposed to be able to go to Busch Gardens to photograph a roller coaster that is going to have a ton of our products installed on it, but the contractor sort of changed his mind and told us we couldn’t go. =( I’m kind of bummed, actually. I really wanted to go.

But that’s okay.

We went to this GINORMOUS house on Manasota Key. It’s 25,000 square feet, has 8 fire places, a 20-car garage, five spiral staircases and an elevator. And it’s also full of our products, so we got a lot of good pictures.

The photographer I hired by way of Google seems to be a nice guy, and the salesman I’m hanging out with is also a very nice guy.

We’re chilling in a Panera at the moment becuase the hotel we’re staying in has an internet wifi connection that runs about as slowly as a snail. So we’re both catching up on email and I’m drinking  a huge cup of very strong coffee.

Tampa is kind of odd. Nice but odd.

And silly NOAA keeps saying that the weather on the way home is going to suck  big time, so we’ll see if I make it home when I’m supposed to. I purposely picked a flight that goes through Houston on the way home. The other option was Chicago, and I figured they’d be getting hammered too.

So, we’ll see what happens.

Thanks to everyone who prayed for me today. Please keep those prayers coming. I really really appreciate it!!!!

Who’s got your back?

Wow. This has got to be the worst internet connection I’ve had to work on in a long time. It’s taken half an hour to load my WordPress page. I finally gave up and am composing in Word and I will paste it when I’m done. Ridiculous!


Oh, well. I can’t complain about the view, though.


I’m sitting in a Holiday Inn in Tampa, FL getting ready for my first day of job site visiting. If all goes well today (and even if it doesn’t) and I feel like braving this stupid internet connection again, I will post an update tonight on how everything went.


In the mean time, this is today’s verse:


Psalm 86:5


 5 O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
      so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.


I am so thankful for that. I think I’ve mentioned in other posts about how thankful I am that we serve a God who forgives us. Not a tyrant in the sky intent on pummeling us or crushing us. God, who created us and loves us and wants the best for us.


But God even goes a step further beyond just forgiving us. He also wants to help us.


The thought of that takes my breath away. God, the creator of the universe, wants to help me with my problems. That’s incredible!


And all I need to do is ask.


So you’d better believe I’m asking for help today. This is all uncharted territory for me, and I will admit to some nerves and knocking knees. But I don’t have to worry because I know that God will help me. He’s so eager to help me. When we ask Him for help, He’s excited to help us.

He’s watching out for us and waiting for the moment when we get it through our thick heads that we can’t do it alone, and when we finally let go our our stupid, foolish pride, He’s right there. He’s got us covered and all we have to do when life gets to be too much is ask for His help. And He will.




Maybe He can help me get this posted.
