A quickie ...

Okay, friends... I've been thrown a project at work that's going to have all my attention today and probably most of tomorrow ... but just so we wont miss each other too much... I'll throw a quick post out.

I can't say how much I've enjoyed Tuesday's Toss Up comments from each one of you, and then all of yesterdays comments. My goodness ... it seems like you are all so spiritually deep. I wish I could meet each and everyone of you and give you a big 'ol hug... but this will have to do ((( ))). There, now ... don't you feel better after an early morning squeeze of lovin?!?!? I know I do!

I have another cube mate story... We just got a new employee that transferred from another department. I overheard him talking to someone on the phone this morning ... just so you don't think I eavesdrop all the time, you can't help but hear each other's conversations because everything is so open. Any way... he was saying "there is just so much work to do, that it doesn't matter how hard each person works, because even Jesus Christ himself wouldn't be able to get all the work done." I wanted so badly to pipe in ... "Oh, yes He can, my friend ... yes he can." But, well -- then it would be considered eavesdropping and butting in. So, I just minded my own business and prayed that God would give me an opportunity to witness to this person. Maybe he already is a Christian, and the comment was taken totally out of context. After all... that's what happens when you eavesdrop -- err -- I mean, hear everything that's going on around you.

On another note, I dug into a bag of Dove Chocolate Promises ... and oh, my word ... they are sooooo wonderful. The chocolates are each wrapped in a blue foil wrapper that have little sayings in them, and I wanted to share some of the sayings I got today (yeah, I know it's too early to eat chocolate, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!)... First foil said, Be Generous. Okay ... I think I'll be very generous with myself and dive into the bag for some more. The next one said Make Your Eyes Twinkle ... trust me ... this chocolate is doing just that! Then, I got a message that said Be Mischievous -- it Feels Good. Oh, yeah -- more than you know. And it is so mischievous and naughty to eat a whole bag of Chocolate by yourself! Then I got one that said, Keep The Promises You Make To Yourself. No worries there. I promise to eat all the chocolates -- by myself.

Seriously, if you haven't tried these little nuggets of chocolate deliciousness, then you just haven't lived. I let them melt in my mouth, and they are so smooth and yummy, and -- ehhheemm. Okay. I need to get back to work.

But before I do, I have a special prayer request for you. I have some dear friends that just became grandparents. Their son and his wife are both very young. Especially the wife. I think she's like 6 or 10 years younger than their son. And she's a new mom. Their baby was born early, and had to stay in the hospital a day after they released mom. Now that everyone is home and getting acclimated, the baby has been crying and crying and crying. He has acid reflux (takes meds for this), and they are just having a tough go at it. He's only like 3 weeks old. Can you please say a prayer for them? We'll call them DadJ, MomL, and BabyC.

Thanks. I know I can turn to you, my friends, when I have a request like that. Especially the moms. I know you'll understand what it's like to have a new crying baby -- heartbreaking when you can't make it all better. Frustrating when you can't get enough rest.

Have a magnificent day in the Lord!

Prayers are on their way. If a magic wand would work, I'd try that too.

Mmm...Chocolate. I feel so bad for that baby and I pray that God will have mercy on the poor child and give the parents strength to deal with what they cannot change. I had colic as a baby because my digestive system hadn't fully formed...I suffer from acid reflux on a regular basis, I know how tough it can be! Poor little baby, too much for just a tot to have to deal with. I am LOVING your spirited entries, thank you for so much warmth.
