Alvin, Simon, & Theodore

I love the movie Alvin & the Chipmunks. Here's a line from it.

It's going, it's going, and it's gone. Oh, whatever! Maybe we should take a break. Ouch! (Theodore falls out of the tree.)


OK...Grace's birthday is next Sunday and we are still trying to decide what to do. My parents are coming to my sister's on Saturday so we could do a party with the family, but even then the whole what & where has to be decided. Grace wants an American Idol party or Alvin & the Chipmunks. The problem is I really don't want to have to put much effort into this. She also wants to do something with her friends which means more planning. However, all I want is to lay on the couch. Must children have a major birthday party every year? I love to celebrate, especially with cake, but it seems like such a chore this year. We've also discussed taking a couple of her friends to see Prince Caspian when it comes out instead of a party. I'm leaning toward that right now. We'll see....

One day at work I had a situation come up that was somewhat overwhelming to me. It had been a terrible week and for whatever reason I was just feeling blah. After a discussion with a fellow employee I just fell apart. It put me way over the edge. As I went back to the office the only thing going through my mind was "I need a word from the Lord." I kept thinking that over and I googled it. I put in "word from the Lord" and this is what came up.

We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you. II Chronicles 20:12b NIV

Is that not perfect! Exactly what I needed! How many times are we in a place where we do not know what to do or how to fix whatever problem is facing us? The good news is we don't have to. Throughout my cancer ordeal last year, God reminded me of Romans 8:28:

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

When we look at those two verses together, we can be assured that God is working things out for our good and our job is just to keep our eyes fixed on Him. When we can do that, He will bring us sweet peace. He is so good!

What a wonderful day!

First I went to breakfast with my best friend and she had a massage chair. She let me sit in it. This afternoon we are going to the movies together with our other friend to see Nim's Island. This is going to be an awesome day! I heard it was a really good movie. Fluffy (my bunny) says "Hi." I just spent a whole hour trying on my summer clothes...not fun! Oh, well...that's all. BYE!
