Life has a way of working itself out if you simply make the best of this moment, one moment at a time. Lord, You have given me this moment.
Grant me the wisdom to live it in a way that will make a difference for me and for those around me. No one has ever asked of God and not received an answer.
Lord, bless me with quiet resolve to hear You and wisdom to accept Your Will.
Today, I've got to wipe myself off, give my kicks a spit shine and head over to my daughter's first college field hockey scrimmage. Help!
SCENE: Sue's conversation with her daughter, M, the day before the game.
M: So Mom, the coach is looking forward to talking to you at the tailgate party after the game.
Susan: Me, why does she want to talk to me? (she says defensively)
M: It's about fundraising, the Europe trip next summer... you know you're going to have to mingle with all of the parents, right?
As Susan watches her daughter leave the room, her heart begins to pound faster and faster.
Susan: What am I gonna say? Worse, what am I gonna to wear? Is it possible to lose 40 pounds overnight? Why can't I just stay home and have one of her friends videotape the game for me?
/Susan: Now stop it, Sue. Don't let your disease ruin your daughter's special day. Not everything is about you.
Susan takes a deep breath. She knows what she has to do.
Susan: Hey M -- (she shouts to her daughter's room down the hall) -- don't worry. I'll wow 'em tomorrow.
Today, I'll change into my Wonder Woman costume and keep the Daily Inspiration in my head and heart throughout the day's events.
Wish me Luck!
