Five more days!

And we leave for our family reunion! All 42 of us, if I got my head-count right. This will be the first time in a very long time that we'll all be together and, of course, there are newer additions to the family who have never met everyone yet. I feel like there are things I should have tried to do before going, but as of now it's going to be all I can do to get ready and go this week.

I'm worried about leaving Lexy, because as it stands right now, she could end up being left outside in a kennel for 12 hours a day... that's a horrifying idea! She's used to being inside And not being alone much and she's a regular Houdini when she's upset about her living quarters, or bored! I'm worried about other animals coming around too, but more about her getting up to her old tricks and getting herself hurt, or killed. A dog with a mind like hers can get in a world of trouble in 12 hours! I woke up this morning with "12 Hours... 12 HOURS! Dear Lord, Help!" going through my head over and over. I've been praying so much about this. If you're reading this before the 10th, Please pray? I just can't imagine leaving her without better care than that. Here's a picture of her... she's not very cooperative about posing for me.

I waited most of the day for an online friend who said they would talk to me after church. I was really hopeful I'd be able to talk to them, since they seemed to have dropped off the edge of the Earth several months ago and since reconnecting very briefly a couple days ago, I've been waiting to have a longer conversation and more details of what happened. No such thing today though. I really have a hard time with waiting for someone, only to have them not show. At least I got an explanation for the months of absense and the worst thing about it was being left out of what was going on. I could have been praying more specifically And not thinking I'd just been ditched for who knows what reason. They thought they would be overburdening me if they told me what was going on, so though I don't think that was true, I can understand.
Oh to have the faith to believe that whatever comes it will all be ok in the Lord! I'm like Martha when she said she knew Lazerus would be raised again in the resurrection, showing that she couldn't fathom everything being ok right then and there. I know it'll all be ok in Heaven, but when it comes to the here and now, I struggle badly. May the Lord of all creation be God of every corner of my life! May He be God of yours as well.
