Good morning Lord.

I come before you, overwhelmed a bit this morning.

Yesterday morning, Dave McCorkell died.  My heart is breaking…all day yesterday and today I have been thinking of Debbie, Kristen and Kim and what a hard day it was for them (and will continue to be).  I remember the day my Mom died so well.  It’s hard to be so far away from a friend who is hurting.

There has been severe flooding in Texas from Hurricane Harvey, and last night, Hurricane Irma hit Florida.  There is so much devastation.  Yet through it all, I see believers trusting you and proclaiming that You are good, all the time!

Today is 9/11.

Tom has a new restaurant opening a week from today and has an overwhelming week ahead and won’t be home much.

One of our kids is struggling with being anxious.

This week, AWANA starts up again, the girls will resume practicing the piano, and homework will probably start up again as well.

I have a to call today about scheduling a mammogram and PET scan.

This is the first full week of school, so I will be back to my normal housekeeping/cleaning routine.

Bible study begins on Thursday.

As a family, overall, things are good.  Why do I worry about the next big trial that will come our way, instead of being thankful?

Lord, please return soon!

My mind is full and there is no way I can function today without you Lord.  If I get discouraged today and start to worry, please draw me close to you and prompt me to pray and give my anxious thoughts to you.
