My heavenly Dad is keeping me on my toes. His latest role in my life is, “Organizational Manger.”
My Charlie Brown clocks ticks, the computer hums, cars stream by hurriedly off to work, pups have gone out so are now nestled quietly, coffee is brewed and in my cup, the glow of the lamp fads as the sun, in brilliant shades of pink and orange, emerges. The clock ticks on.
