While I am sleeping....

About two months ago I was having brunch with a former nursing prof now in Africa. While we were catching up on life events that have occurred over the last 15 years and contemplating what the future may hold she reminded me that sometimes God moves in seemingly little ways that have big outcomes. I joked with her that since I work nights a lot of the "insignificant" moments occur while I am asleep!
Tonight I am catching up on my Bible study homework on the book of Esther. In this book some very pivotal things occurred while most of the country was asleep and a king had a case of insomnia. "When you put your head on the pillow at night, you never know what God will do before morning." I am wondering what He is up to now as there seem to be some crossroads that I went through unwittingly and now find myself on a different direction then I originally planned.
It is after midnight and I plan on following the ancient King of Persia's example and reviewing the blog of the "chronicles, the record of his reign". :) I pray that when my head is on my neglected pillow God will be at work while I am sleeping.

Interior design request

I admit that I am often inspired when it comes to decorating my home by clearance sales. I found these lights for 75% off today. They had a look that resembled pine cones to me and I hoped they would work. It needs just a little something more...maybe on the ends and in the middle? Any ideas?

Quick thoughts on the go...

Catching up

Oh what an Autumn it has been! I feel the need to borrow a line from my cousin-in-law's post, "October, you are such a happy but hyper little month! Your warm days have a summery feel that lulls us into feeling we can relax..but there's much to be done." (from Janna) Are you feeling this way in the mid-west? I know FL never quite had that feel although a slight change could be noted in the air around this time. We have been enjoying this Fall. I think it began with the university's homecoming but this past weekend was pretty fun as well. We spent some time at Micah's farm and then went to Athens for Grandma W. 95th birthday party. In between we have said good-bye to our garden...a very faithful and prosperous friend this year for us! I hope you are enjoying your month as well. Happy Fall!

That's fast!

Just imagine...3,500 stitches per minute!! I imagine the seamstress who owned this at The Whitehall Shirt Shop could never go back to a regular home sewing machine. It would be like a pilot having to drive 30 mph after flying a jet!

Quick thoughts on the go...


These little trees are keeping pace with Isabel. I wonder who will be ahead next Fall?
