Okay, so Day Two of my new turnaround! i.e., being diligent in my daily blogs.
The Word for today comes from Philippians 4:8, “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever thingsare noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”
So I arose this morning meditating on the word, determined to have a good day….and then I sat down to write a plea to our Jury Pool, again pleading to be excused from Jury Duty due to the degenerative arthritis in my left knee, which is painfully swollen and not healing. I’ve been on meds and am left rather loopy on some days; hence, I posted my Jury Duty for Thursday, the 18th, rather than Monday the 15th. Now this is my second time to miss Jury Duty in two months due to my inability to keep track of appointments, even though I post such info on my fridge. My daughter insists they won’t be as lenient on me this second time around.
Now, I could go into major panic mode and fall apart and just drive myself into a frenzy and high blood pressure, or I can focus on a message from Joyce Meyer: “A passive person gives up, but the expectant person, on the other hand, is hopeful, believing the answer is just around the corner, due to arrive any minute. His belief is not a passive thing. His heart is full of hope, expecting his problem to be solved at any moment. He wakes up every morning expecting to find his answer. He may wait and wait, but he’ll keep asking until suddenly, God turns everything around.” “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
I sit here, waiting expectantly for that second reprieve….will it come? or will County issue a warrant for the arrest of this 61yo mother for “Failure to Appear” ?
Tune in tomorrow….
