I’m blogging a bit later than usual today because our beautiful German Shepherd, Scout, had a little ear issue that needed to be taken care of. I spent more time than I should have thinking about how the trip to the Vet wasn’t in my daily plans and how far behind I was going to be on my to do list. I had a couple of unproductive thoughts: (1) Why do they give you an appointment time, but not see you until an hour later? (2) Hey, I was here before that lady and her little fur ball with legs. 😀 Then I took a deep breath and said to myself, “STOP TRIPPING & FLOW.” That’s something I learned from my pastor a few years ago during a training for my first missions trip to South Africa.
Proverbs 19:21 says, You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. It’s always great to set goals and to make plans, but if things don’t go exactly the way you think they should, getting upset isn’t the answer. If you find yourself somewhere unexpected like the Vets office (LOL), try asking God why you’re there. That’s something else I learned from my pastor. It’s a lot less stressful to talk to God than being upset about something you have no control over.
I got a lot done despite my time at the Vet because one of the young ladies offered to keep Scout for FREE so that I could run a few errands. Before she offered, I had decided to postpone my errands until tomorrow because I had to take Scout home first. I’m so glad I kept my pie hole (big mouth) shut about the lady and her fur ball with legs. 😀
Just blogging it out . . .Oh and Happy Monday and it’s BLACK HISTORY MONTH!! 😀
