Soaked and Hope

Ahh, it feels good to be home.

That my friends is my doormat. And I will be crossing this doormat to sleep in my house Wednesday, Thursday, and maybe even Friday night! Its been a solid 10 days since I’ve had 3 days in a row in my bed, so I am really looking forward to it.

You may notice that my mat is a very dark brown. To be honest, it is waterlogged. Usually it is a much lighter brown color. After I took this picture and starting thinking about what to write…..this popped up outside!

And there is no better way to remember that whatever is troubling you, God is there. A rainbow is God’s promise that he has not forgotten you, and there will be another day.

As my crazy traveling has a brief relief (there’s a wedding next weekend, so I know there is more travel to come) but while I can, I want to relax and enjoy. Yesterday I was so wrapped up in hopeless/overwhelmed feelings I wasn’t sure if I could make it through the entire day. Eventually I did and while sitting in a meeting in the Twin Cities, the news of flooding in Duluth started coming in.

At first it sounded as if the flooding was only near the zoo. However then I saw the pictures of Target…..And then I was nervous. I decided to attempt to travel home and was successful. I’m nervous what the drive will look like for work tomorrow, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Until then I’m trying to take things as they come. Doing what I can, when I can. And remembering, there is always tomorrow.
