5:00 a.m.

What is it about 5:00 a.m.? Why is it that it is then that my mind starts to race and I start thinking of the tasks that lay ahead? Well...right now with moving, my list of things to do is what is waking me up this early. Boxes to pack, things to sort through, rooms to clean, calls to make and people I need to confirm with for one thing or another. Then I start thinking of these things and listening to Chuck breath (maybe snore would be more accurate), and I can't get back to sleep. And sleep is what I really long for. But if I am honest, it comes down to details that I need to lay at God's feet. Things that are on my mind or on my list of things to do or concerns about getting all the details of closing our house in just 3 weeks. These are all details that God cares about too. When I remind myself of the truth, and cling to that, it is there where I find comfort. God is still in control. He is trustworthy and I choose to rest in Him. So...now that it is almost 6:00 a.m., I might as well enjoy the quiet morning and the chance to unload my burdens on him.

Hey Chris!
You've gone high tech--it's amazing. Great to hear from you and glad to see you're up early and on your knees. Loren and I are surviving this pastor stuff and living in Bangor, PA. The kids are all grown and having kids of their own. The best part is they are all Jesus freaks (in the best sense of the word). HUGS to all! Kathy Eagles

Great job! Congratulations on all the changes! Need a little help?

Sorrento is not so far. Who knows? Maybe we'll be in the same vicinity again in a few months, but first I've got a lot of work to do...
