It’s lunch time at work. I love my job. A weird thing just happened: I received an order from a company, “URGENT! Must fill order by this weekend to make consolidated shipment!” I bustled and got the order entered. I then notice, at the very bottom it reads, “Shipment to leave on the 26th.” Since today is is the following week, that is not possible.
I ask Cindy,”Do we have a time machine somewhere that I don’t know about?” Seconds later I shot back,”If we do, I’m taking it back to February.”

What are your mornings like? I go to bed late, hopefully late enough to fall a sleep within about 20 minutes, but it’s extremely rare when/if I don’t wake up before the alarm clock, 5.5-6 hrs later. I get myself ready, make coffee (of course 🙂 ) and the first thing on my agenda is to shut up and listen to what my Heavenly Dad has to say.

Today when I was out and about, one of God’s little boy’s came up, flopped himself across the table next to me, looking at me with crystal blue eyes and asked with sincerity,”Do you still miss Archie?”

Green frog tape: advertised for keeping paint from bleeding onto unwanted surfaces. I see it used everyday to help bind the wounds of a broken heart. I haven’t seen that advertisement, have you?
