A Life Worth Living by Nancy Buxton

Down the Road

Tomorrow I am headed to Kansas City to a women’s retreat.  I hate leaving home and leaving my man at home alone.  Yet I love to be with the ladies.  I love the excitement that they bring with them.  I love hearing the Word from the special speaker.  I love to watch women as their lives are changed.  I love to have my life changed too.

I will be giving a short welcome.  What should I say?  Should I just say I am happy to be with them and I am happy they have come.  Or do I tell them the truth?  I am worried for them and for me.  I am worried that Satan has declared war on us and that we will let him get the upper hand.

Do you know how really evil and smart Satan is?  I read an explanation about why he works so hard to wreck our life and it makes sense.  Satan knows we are nearing the end and he knows in the end the Lord will win.  He knows it is now or never to get us on his side.  Scary isn’t it?

Oh my sisters pray diligently that we will hold fast and not falter.

Monday, Monday. . .

Isn’t there a song like that, oh no I am showing my age.  Well there are other ways I am showing my age too.  My face is starting to looking like a road map and. . .well we won’t even go there.

But I feel so young.  How can it be, I look my age but I feel my daughter’s age.  Not that I would like to put forth the energy to raise 3 children again, I think that would age me beyond recognition.

The house is finally in order  semi-order.  Do you know what I mean?  On the outside it looks pretty good but on the inside it needs some attention.  The drawers need to be straightened, closets gone through, blinds dusted, mop boards dusted and windows cleaned on the inside.  That’s not all but I don’t want to bore you.

I have business to take care of like making The Little House on the Prairie outfit including bonnet, the Christmas surprises that I am sewing.  The Christmas decorations that I want up before the end of the week.

However, it is 11:07 am to be exact and I have not had my worship or taken a walk.  It is time for action I can’t really accomplish the best things in my life without putting some study time in my schedule.  I have told you, you all know I have trouble squeezing it all in.  Today I will gain the victory just for today, tomorrow there will be a whole new battle to be fought.  Satan is a busy body and he works hard to keep me from the Lord.
