He is Always on Time.



Two Writing Teachers are hosting Slice of Life.  Join us!


A Bit of a Backstory...

The past 3 weeks have been hard.  Like, you are side swiped and knocked over.  You get up.  You get side swiped again.  You get up.  It happens again.  It begins to happen so much, you just start crazy laughing when it does.  You are clawing to hang onto every piece of positive you can in your being. 

(Lutheran Girl Looks Around...shhh...)  You might be getting frustrated with God.  Where are You?  Why is all this happening?

After lunch today, I'm standing with a friend in the office when the doorbell rings.  As we begin to visit with our guest, she asks us to heat up her lunch.  She's homeless you see, and a pizza hot pocket from the gas station down the way just really sounded good today.  I learned she didn't want that cold meat sandwich, her mom lives on the east side of town...

Without thinking twice, my friend and I lead her down the hallway to the microwave.  She looks around.  
"Did I bother a school?"  

There's a church over here, you came at just the right time so we could help you.  

"Oh yes.  God is Always on Time."

Stopped me right in my tracks.  

I'll say it again if you missed it, "God is Always on Time." 

I'll keep waiting.  I know when He shows up, it will be on Time.  

Joy!  (In the Time.)

#mustreadin2017: An Update



Oh Friends!  I'm so excited to check in an see what you've been reading!

I just giggled as I was looking at my Goodreads tonight to see how I was doing!   Let's get right to the update shall we?

Here is my January link.   It has my original 20 books.

Here we are in April.  So far I've read:

19486412
I loved it when my sis texted me after she finished this last week.  Such an escape read!
25897953
My 12 year old asked me to read it.  Pulled it off the shelf for me at the library.  Who can say no to that?

27254002
If you are looking to be challenged in a faith walk-this is a book for you.  Wowza.

20083073
I've always wanted to read this book, and found it on clearance one night at the book store.

30659573
I just finished this tonight as part of a book club with a first year teacher and an administrator.

11607446
If I got serious, I could finish this tonight...I'm so close!


So-I've read 5 books, and have nearly completed a 6th.
What cracks me up?  3 of these books weren't on my list.

I'm not great at sticking to the plan...  it should also be noted, these two were gifted to me after I started the challenge, so of course they are in the stack too:
20820994  18718848

What's up next?
I don't know.  The stack of the original 20 is close by.  I keep picking them up and putting them down.  I can't decide!  Stay tuned...

Joy!
