I was visiting with a collector in California yesterday and this one subject kept coming up. We all have mulled over the thoughts that we have to Let Go and Let God; we have accepted the fact if we makes plans, God is probably greatly amused; and we know we are to seek knowledge to provide wisdom to make decisions. This collector pointed out to me her greatest sin was over analyzing a situation every time. Most folks, and especially those left-brained ones, dissect every issue, every problem, contemplate every angle and basically kept those squirrels running on the wheels in their brain 24/7. I never thought about the word analyzing in this sense, but decided I have issues with it. I definitely look at all sides of a situation before trying to make a decision. That is not simple faith is it?

I know Terry does his version of the "analyzing" too. When it comes to finishing a project, i.e., the torn up walls from rewiring electricity 8 months ago, they are still not sheet-rocked and finished off. Of course I see them 24/7, he only see them 5 hours a day, maybe less. He is obviously still contemplating and analyzing the best way to finish them off. I told him yesterday I would call someone in. I was in the studio multitasking and found him laying on MY side of the bed watching the history channel at one in the afternoon when we were trying to finish up boxes for mailing. Somehow his analyzing slides into the "I will think about it later" mode.

So if you have comments on this and suggestions how to curb this activity, please share it. I am planning on just making myself aware every time I do it, and refocusing immediately to the Lord. This will be a tough habit to break.

A quick post note thought: Pray for my daughter and son-in-law this day. It would have been my grandson Grant's 13th birthday today. For those of you that have read my blog for years, you know that Grant was taken from us in February of 2007. Today will be a celebration of his life for all of us.

PEACE my friends in this season of Love as we prepare our hearts in celebration.

Laurie

"
Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?" God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, riches or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king, therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, riches and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have." 2 Chronicles 1:10-12
