It has been one of those days. I am thankful to have my eldest home from school again - we are having a great time! I loaded up all the kidlets and cautiously ventured out to the gym this morning through the ice. When I got back I immediately knew that I was in for a big suprise (yes, the smell was in the air). Our sweet Sheltie Chance decided to get in the trash and help himself to the tulips I threw away .... what the heck? He was eating the green stems! Now, I know he is wayy smarter than this. And then he proceeded to get sick and leave me 4 - yes, 4 piles of nasty poo to clean up off the carpet. So much fun! He has now been banned to the patio for the remainder of the day. I tell ya, it never stops around here friends - one big circus!
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart. It is to have no trouble. It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore, To wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, And when I am blamed or despised; it is to have a blessed home in myself where I can go in and shut the door and kneel to my Father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and about is trouble.
