A fence and a Story!

..........For every mile of road there are two miles of ditches!

and in some will find two miles of fences!

So....what does it really mean when one says: "For every mile of road, there are two miles of ditches" ????

It means that there are two sides to every story!

How true this is!  Does this mean that one story is the truth and one story is a lie?   Not just simply means that two people see things in a different light.

"He who answers a matter before he hears it; it is folly and shame to him."
                                        Proverbs 18:13

Before we place judgement upon others....we should definitely hear both sides of the story!

It is when someone hurts our feelings, that we have the opportunity to truly see just how important our relationship with Jesus really is!!!

Happy Fence Day!!

Schedule a Day......

Have you ever scheduled a day to have nothing on your schedule?   If you haven't, it is definitely a MUST DO!

I did it yesterday......I cleared EVERYTHING from my calendar, except a trip with Sam.   A simple overnight trip that required me doing Nothing!

I managed to sleep until 8:25......which may not sound late to many of you, but for me.... This was LATE.    Once I got up and got dressed, (and after a couple of cups of coffee) I drove myself to downtown Aggieland, where I found one of my favorite stores..... Barnes and Noble book store!!

I spent two hours in this store.... Sitting and reading and sitting and reading!  I guess you could say that I was acknowledging a gift, as simple as having a free day at a book store.

After spending a few hours at the bookstore, I came back to the hotel and I enjoyed a nice lunch with my that time, I had no idea as to what the afternoon had in store for me.

After packing up and taking all our luggage to the car....I came back in to the hotel and found a comfortable sitting area which was located on the deck outside of the meeting rooms!  

Let me see if I can properly describe the place.   It was a shaded deck that overlooked a garden and a pool.   Just to my right, was a gorgeous water fountain that flowed down a brick wall....and emptied into the pool.  As I sat there on the deck....reading a decorating magazine....I could feel a fabulous breeze that blew my hair slightly off of my face!

It was just me, the breeze and the sound of water flowing.  Extremely peaceful to say the least.   I am so thankful for this unscheduled day of having NOTHING scheduled.   

Just as we plan for a vacation each year......we should also make it a point to schedule days off for nothing but ourselves.   NO Drs. appointments, NO shopping, NO commitments, NO appointments of any kind!!!   

It may be a long time before I'm able to spend another day like this one.....but I will for sure, add a note to my calendar......


Enjoy your Blessing of today...
