When I get a late start on the day, my whole day is off. Today is that day! Things have been helter-skelter all morning. If I try hard, I might be able to get things back on track before nightfall.
We were supposed to be on the road to Tybee Island, GA today. In fact, we were to have left yesterday, but Hurricane Matthew took care of our plans. We have no idea when we’ll be able to go since the residents of the island are not allowed back on the island at this time. We love Tybee and have been there several times, and I’d had my heart set on going again. We will get back there later.
This morning we were informed that a good friend had passed away. I’ve reflected over the years we’ve known this man. It’s been close to fifty years since we first met him. He was a gospel preacher, and when we moved to Kentucky, we found out he lived in the area. We’d spent several times visiting with him and his wife. Vergil Hale will be missed. Our sympathies go out to his wife, Dinah, and his children and grandchildren.
Usually, the first thing I do when I get up is read my Bible. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know I study daily, without fail. It hasn’t happened yet this morning, but I must find time to be with the Lord. I’ll do it when I finish the blogs. I’m a firm believer in putting God first in my life. It doesn’t feel right when I don’t do it.
We have two books coming out in the next few weeks. I’m doing the final read-through on Keeper of the Flame by Mary Kay Tuberty. I’ve read it twice in edits, and I love these books about the Carty Sisters. This is number three, and Mary Kay told me in August that there will be one more.
Please remember all those who were in the area of the hurricane. One of our authors had water in her basement and a roof leak. I’m thankful that it was not more serious. A lot of people are out of power and some don’t have homes to go back to. Please pray for everyone.
