The Angels have Spoken...

{Polly, from 'Polly Ann's', in Mt.Vernon, gave this 'Gnarly' plate to me...{Polly does the lettering...very cool} She is such an Amazing Little Soul.... Love Her...}


Patty called this morning...wondering how the Anamosa Show was... I told her... We had a very nice visit...  she said I need to sit down, and have a Board Meeting with God...I also got an e-mail from Gail... who told me to quit sniveling...buck up...focus on Nashville...she reminded me of how blessed I am, to be a part, of one of the most Prestigious Shows, in the Country...and basically...get my Crap together... Angels...both of them are Amazing Angels...
 I told Gail, I feel like a Snappy Quarter Horse...{known for running the Quarter mile...}that is running a mile and half track...like a Thoroughbred....the rider is getting heavier..and starting in, with the crop...I'm getting winded...but...still running...
Then, I took Patty's advise, and opened my Streams...to August 5th, 
{2 Corinthians 12:9} My Grace is sufficient for you.
and a portion, of the poem, by Annie Johnson Flint is as follows;
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father's full giving has just begun....
{pretty fitting...it always is...perfect...}

God didn't say, might be sufficient... or may be.... He said "Is Sufficient"... and...I... believe it...
I hate to disappoint people... or, do the wrong thing... I felt bad, about making people angry...I felt bad, about disappointing my Family... and not doing better... but... I did the Best I could...and that's all I can do... Anita...Vikki...Amy...Liz... well... they are all Angels...
I'll keep the bit in my teeth... nose out...and keep running with the Thoroughbreds....and know... there are always Angels... and Grace... and Everything will be fine....

{Peg is headed home.... I won't see her 'til I pick her up, on the way to Nashville...my little 'One Winged Angel'...My Wings, are all singed, from getting too close to the fire...so, we are a good pair...}
