OK, so I know I havn't posted the pictures from the picnic, but let's just say, it went well. Everyone enjoyed the cakes and they were consumed in no time!
Things have been very busy, and projects at work are conflicting with alot of things. This past Tuesday, work was very hard. I found out that my boss is unhappy at the things I am trying to do and learn, and he is expecting me to "step it up" a notch.
My question is: When you are failing to spend time with your family, breaking your back to finish a project so you can go to church, missing out on the fellowship of your friends, staying up late and missing out on sleep, and not to mention, being worried about what the boss thinks and expects; HOW CAN I STEP IT UP??
So needless to say, Tuesday was very stressful, and filled with prayer. I called my mom and let her know how to pray, and she called Mrs. Beabes to let her know. Wednesday morning at 8:00, Abe called to see how I was doing and to exhort me to keep faith in God. "Either way," he said, "it is a test of your faith." I hadn't really thought of it that way and I had gotten so caught up in my own world, that I just needed to step back and say, "Whoa!"
We talked for about forty-five minutes, and then I had to go to work. But all that day, I was looking at things from a different light, and the day went quite well! Abe and I were able to talk again that night for about the same amount of time, and we just fellowshipped together.
I thank God for the people He has brought into my life, and the blessing and encouragement that Abe has been to me.
