Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

My mama used to say that I was a cat on a hot tin roof when I just sort of flit from place to place.  My mind seemed to be about 10 steps ahead and my body was struggling to keep up.

That's what I feel like this morning.  I had a hard time sleeping because I kept dreaming I forgot a piece of the dossier.  I woke up like lightening this morning, but I was shaking from nerves.

I almost skipped my prayer and Bible reading time.  I just have so much to do I don't want to forget anything!  But, I didn't.  I prayed for today.  I prayed for Alice.  I prayed for those on my list.  I thanked him for all he has done.  I worshiped him.  I stopped shaking.

I read the Word.  My mind started to focus and settle.  I started breathing again.

What a glorious God we serve.  His presence, his thoughts, his love is like a healing balm.  He is a mighty fortress.

I have about 5 places to go in Austin today.  Will you pray for me?  Although I am less anxious than I was this morning, I'm still ready to be done and I want to be just right.  I will update when I get home this evening.


  1. I'm praying too. If you feel up to it, stop by our place tonight around 7 pm to settle your nerves with some Gospel Bluegrass. It might do you all some good to get out and take your mind off of things and have some fun ! The waiting game has officially begun..."Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Phil 4:6 <3

  2. I will be praying. I was in the SAME boat you were in this morning. God's Word and quiet time in prayer is soothing to our souls! I pray your body catches up with your brain today ; ) I also will pray that all details are taken care of and that you will return home to your bed tonight and have a restful night's sleep as we all turn to focus on praying through the wait. Us Robisons love Alice, pray for her consistently & can't wait to meet her!
